    •We will fish out killers, say police  The family of Okafor Martins, 36, who was gruesomely murdered on March 16, 2021 at Uruebo village in Oyi Local Council of Anambra State, has called on the Police to ensure that justice is served and the killers of their son brought to book.     

    The deceased, who was survived by parents who are over 80, was abducted by suspected thugs.

    He was taken to an unknown destination and was later stabbed to death while begging his killers for mercy.  

    According to eyewitnesses, the late Martins was in his uncle’s compound when suspected thugs invaded the compound at about 10:30a.

    m. with sporadic shootings and abducted him in the absence of his uncle, who later arrived from a journey about an hour after.  

    The uncle, Mr. Francis Okafor recounted that upon his arrival, he was told that a group of violent thugs invaded his compound and abducted his nephew.  

    “While I was trying to figure out what could have gone wrong, the group resurfaced in a commando style and started shooting. 

    “When they left,  I was prompted to go  to the Police division at Nkwelle Azunakain Oyi to report the matter. 

    “ The DPO told me he was aware of the issue, but would not want to have anything to do with the matter,” he said.   

    Also, Mr. Okafor, told The Guardian that an eye witness narrated to him that the thugs  tied his nephew’s hands and stabbed him twice on his neck before he died.    

    He alleged that the same leader of the thugs who earlier abducted him, masterminded the killing of his nephew  and deposited his dead body at Wisdom mortuary Awkuzu in Oyi Local Council.    

    Mr. Okafor said on noticing that his nephew had been murdered by the thugs, he reported the matter vide a petition to the Commissioner of Police, Anambra State and the commissioner subsequently moved the case to the Homicide section after carrying out arrest of some suspects.   

    Amazingly, Mr. Okafor said while the matter was being investigated at the Homicide department, the chief suspect transferred the case from the CID Awka to the Monitoring Unit, Force headquarters,  Abuja.     

    According  to Okafor, several letters were written to the Inspector General of Police for the matter to be investigated properly before it  was transferred to the police zonal headquarters, zone 13. 

    “The case file again was taken back to Abuja by some police officers suspected to be frustrating the matter because of some financial inducement by the prime suspect.   

    “The suspect boasted before me and others that they have suppressed the matter because they have the wherewithal to do so. 

    “We are appealing to the Police Service Commission and the IGP to order for a thorough investigation and allow justice to prevail.

    ”     Also, the immediate younger brother to the deceased, James Okafor, pleaded with the police to ensure that investigation is conducted fast, for them to bury him.

    “We can no longer pay the mortuary bills.

    We want justice,” he pleaded.  

    For Anthony Okafor, the eldest brother of the deceased, the case must not be swept under the carpet.

    Everyone involved must be brought to book.  

    “My whole family is under threat by the people who feel they are very powerful and can do anything because they are politicians.   

    “ We appeal to the IGP to wade into the matter.

    Our parents are in their late 80s, the trauma is creating serious health challenges to them.

    Almost two years  now, their son is still in mortuary,” Anthony lamented.   

    When The Guardian contacted the Police, spokesperson for the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department( FCIID) Abuja, Superintendent of Police (SP), Funmi Eguaoje, said  the legal department is working on the case file as the autopsy report is being awaited. 

    Funmi also stated that the prime suspect was still in custody, while four other suspects earlier released are on bail.

    “The Commissioner of Police, Mr Faleye Olaleye, is aware of the video of a woman Inspector, Olorunsogo Bamidele allegedly assaulted by her Divisional Crime Officer, ASP Ajayi Mathew in Ode-Omu division trending on social media.

    “The commissioner has interviewed the police officers involved in this unprofessional act and consequently ordered thorough investigation of the incident to unravel circumstances that led to these unethical behaviours.

    “The commissioner of police is assuring the general public that justice will prevail on the matter,’’ she stated.

    Similarly, the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Usman Alkali Baba, has directed Mr Olaleye to investigate the alleged assault on Bamidele.

    A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa, Adejobi, said the IGP would await the report of the investigation before taking necessary action.

    “The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Baba, has directed the Commissioner of Police, Osun, Mr Olaleye, to investigate the alleged assault on woman Insp Olorunsogo Bamidele by her Divisional Crime Officer in Ode-Omu. “We assure the general public that justice will be done in the case to protect the core values and ethics of the Nigeria Police Force,’’ Adejobi stated.

    In the viral video, Insp Bamidele showed injuries and blood stains all over her body.

    She explained in the video that ASP Matthew assaulted her and threatened to kill her with a Dane gun because she refused his love advances towards her.

    Insp Bamidele also claimed that two police constables and 10 civilians were among those present when she was assaulted by the ASP Mathew on Tuesday.

    “What is my offence?

    ’’ she queried in the video.

    She claimed that ASP Mathew stripped her naked in the process “because he asked me out that I should befriend him, but I said `no’, that I am a married woman and he started beating me,” she said in the video.

    Tinubu has no pending criminal case with Police- I-G tells court

    The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Alkali Usman, told a Federal High Court in Abuja that  the presidential candidate of the All Progresdives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Bola Tinubu has no pending criminal matter with the Police.

    Usman also told the court  that Tinubu had no pending petition and was not a suspect to the Nigeria Police, hence, could not be put on trial.

    The explanation was part of the contents of an affidavit filed at the court by his counsel, Mr Wisdom Madaki.

    Madaki  filed  the affidavit in response to a suit instituted by a civil rights group seeking an order of mandamus to compel the police to arrest and prosecute Tinubu for perjury and certificate forgery.

    The police chief maintained that the police could not prosecute Tinubu without any known offence committed.

    The police  explained that the two petitions it had against Tinubu were on allegations that had been adjudicated upon by the Supreme Court in 2002 in a suit filed by the late human rights activist, Gani Fawehinmi.

    The affidavit averred that since the alleged perjury and certificate forgery had been resolved by the apex court, there was no need for the police to reopen the matter.

    The IGP said that the police did not need any court order to make arrests and prosecute since it derived its powers from the constitution and statutes.

    He prayed the court to dismiss the suit brought against him and the Nigeria Police Force for want of merit and jurisdiction.

    He also told the court that the plaintiff would not be prejudiced if the suit was dismissed.

    Counsel to the group, Mr Eme  Ekpu, however,  told Justice Inyang Ekwo that the counter affidavit of the police had just been served on him.

    Ekpu prayed the court to give him some time to peruse it and reply to it formally.

    In a brief ruling, Justice Ekwo granted the request and fixed Jan. 19, 2023 for hearing of the suit.

    The News Agency of Nigeria, , reports that the Incorporated Trustees of the Center for Reform and Public Advocacy had dragged the IGP to court.

    The suit was predicated on the alleged refusal of the police to prosecute the presidential candidate of the APC over allegations bothering on forgery.

    The suit dated and filed on July 4 on behalf of the group in Abuja by Mr  Mike Nwankwo has the Nigerian Police Force and the Inspector- General of Police as 1st and 2nd respondents.

    The group said that the legal action against the police was necessitated by the IGP’s refusal to take action on its petitions against Tinubu.

    The petition they said was over an offence it claimed Tinubu committed and was indicted by the Lagos State House of Assembly in 1999. The applicant maintained that by Sections 214 and 215 of the 1999 Constitution and Section 4 of the Nigerian Police Act, 2020, the Police have the statutory responsibility to uphold ir.

    The applicant said this responsibility was to prevent, detect and investigate criminal allegations whether brought to its notice by individuals, persons, corporate bodies or institutions.

    The applicant in the suit marked: 10582022, is asking the court for an order of mandamus compelling the respondents to comply with Sections 31 and 32 of the Police Act and Section 3 of the Criminal Justice Act, 2015 .

    This, according to the applicant, is with regards to the alleged crime of forgery committed by the APC presidential candidate.

    IGP inaugurates projects in Delta, assures Nigerians of security 

    The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Akali Usman has again assured Nigerians that the Police and other security agencies were working assiduously to secure the country.

    The IGP gave the assurance on Saturday while inaugurating a modern police station and barrack in Ibusa community, Oshimili North LGA of Delta.

    The police chief expressed disappointment on the recent security alert by the U.

    S embassy, saying it was wrong to make such public announcement without first liaising with the police and other security agencies in the county.

    “How can you enter the country and say there is security alert, you didn’t inform police, and you go around telling your people don’t go to Abuja.

    “When you have information on security, it is proper to inform the police and we will find a way to tackle it, instead of taking it to the public.

    “I am urging the media not to help them spread such information.

    We are working in synergy with other security agencies to ensure the safety of residents,” Usman said.

    On the inaugurated projects, the IGP said similar ones were  being built across the six geopolitical zones of the country to provide better working condition for police operations.

    He appealed to the people of Ibusa community to take ownership of the project and protect it against vandalism.

    “This project we are commissioning today is your property, it is built with public money, so it belongs to you and this is why you should protect it at all times.

    “This new police station will also be fitted with a CCTV camera that would cover up to two kilometres for security purposes,” Usman said.

    He urged members of the public to always provide relevant information on security to the police for prompt action, instead of going public with it to create unecessary apprehension.

    In his welcome address, the  Commissioner of Police in Delta, Mr Ali Mohammed, commended the IGP for the project and other initiatives to reposition the service since his assumption of office.

    He said that the project will motivate police officers and men, and mitigate the numerous challenges facing them.

    Court reserves ruling until Nov. 29 in Afe Babalola Varsity’s case against contractors

    Court reserves ruling until Nov. 29 in Afe Babalola Varsity’s case against contractors

    A Federal High Court, sitting in Ado-Ekiti, on Thursday adjourned hearing of jurisdiction application in a case filed by Afe Babalola University, Ado-Ekiti (ABUAD) against Francisca Ikpe and three others until Nov. 29. The Presiding Judge, Justice Babs Kuewumi, reserved ruling in the case, after argument and counter-argument from the defence counsel and the prosecution counsel.

    Kuewumi said, “This case is adjourned until Nov. 29 for ruling.

    ” Earlier, when the case with 482022, involving IGP vs Francisca Ikpe, Oyeleye Yusuf, JNC International and one other, was mentioned for reading of the charges and plea taking, the defendants were absent in the court.

    The Defence Counsel, Mr Ebun Adegboruwa (SAN), told the court that there was a pending application filed on Aug. 30 before the court and another application filed on Oct.13, seeking, among other reliefs on the issue of jurisdiction.

    Adegboruwa urged the court to first determine his clients’ application, bordering on issue of jurisdiction.

    He confirmed to the court that Afe Babalola University had a contractual agreement with the defendants for the supply and maintenance of medical equipment.

    The counsel said the complainant had earlier complained that one of the machines supplied by his clients was malfunctioned.

    Adegboruwa, however, wondered why the police wanted to change what was supposed to be a civil matter to criminal case.

    The counsel urged the court to first determine the application bordering on jurisdiction before taking the pleas of the defendants.

    “We are challenging the power of the police not to convert this civil suit to a criminal trial,” Adegboruwa told the court.

    He urged the court to discountenance the oral application by the prosecutor, opposing the defence counsel’s application on court’s jurisdiction.

    The defence counsel cited an order of the Federal High Court in Lagos, given on Aug. 9, 2022 in a suit No: 14902022. He further argued that Justice TG Ringim, in a suit still pending before him, had issued an order of injunction against the and the complainant, from proceeding with a criminal trial, saying the order was still subsisting.

    He submitted that by virtue of Section 284(3) of the 1999 Constitution, as amended, the Federal High Court, sitting in Ado-Ekiti, is under statutory mandate to enforce and give effect to the order of the Federal High Courts.

    He said there was a prohibiting order of court against filing the criminal charge or against arraignment of the defendants.

    Adegboruwa further told the court that the charge filed by the prosecution was to override the order of Federal High Court sitting in Lagos.

    He said there was no fraud at all and that it was purely a contractual agreement that should be seeing as a civil suit.

    Addressing the court earlier, the Police Prosecutor, Mr Femi Falade, opposed the defence counsel’s application on the issue challenging the court’s jurisdiction.

    Falade, who is also the Officer- in-Charge Legal, in the Ekiti Command, told the court that no trial could commence in the absence of the defendants in a criminal trial.

    He, however, insisted that the case involved about N1 billion worth of medical equipment supplied by the defendants, but with certain components malfunctioning.

    According to him, this is purely a criminal offence, for which the defendants refused to clear themselves.

    Falade, then urged the court to discountenance the application of the defence counsel that the application for jurisdiction be taken without the presence of the defendants.

    According to him, refusal of the defendants to appear in court in person amounted to a ploy to run away from justice.

    He said that the argument by the defence counsel was a ploy to make the defendants escaped justice.

    Falade told the court that the prosecution was not aware of any order restraining the court.

    The prosecutor said that he only got to know after the charges had been completed and filed before the court.
