Igbo Groups Call On FG, IGP To Probe Killing Of Police Officers In Anambra
An umbrella trade organisation for the Igbo, the Ala-Igbo Development Foundation (ADF), has urged the Federal authorities to probe the killing of two serving policemen in Oraifite, Anambra State.
The organisation, which comprises the Association of South-East Town Unions (ASETU) and the United Anambra State Association of Canada (UASAC) said the inquiry was necessary so as to bring the full weight of the law on the culprits,
The two officers were Assistant Commissioner of Police, Oliver Inoma-Abbey who before his murder, was the Divisional Police Officer, Ekwusigo Local Government Area, Anambra and Assistant Superintendent of Police, Joseph Akubo, PMF, SARS and Special Anti-Cult Units in the Ekwusigo council.
The Anambra State Police Command, on December 2, 2019, had in a statement by Superintendent of Police Haruna Mohammed, the Command’s Public Relations Officer (PPRO), declared Ifeanyi Ejiofor, the lawyer to the IPOB wanted following the tragedy.
The assailants suspected to be IPOB members reportedly laid ambush and attacked the vehicle conveying the officers, who led police operations to the community, before setting their corpses ablaze.
The late Oliver Inoma-Abbey from Bonny Island in Rivers was to be installed Chief and Head of the Abbey-Hart Chieftaincy House of ancient Bonny Kingdom in 2020 after he would have retired next April.
Speaking on Tuesday on the gruesome murder, the ADF urged the government and the Inspector General of Police to investigate the issue that led to the crisis in the home of Ifeanyi Ejiofor, at Ifite-Oraifite community in Ekwusigo local government area.
In a statement by the chairman of ADF Bureau of Media and Publicity, Chief Abia Onyike, the body equally asked other pan-Igbo organisations to initiate a joint inquiry into the Oraifite mayhem.
“Ndigbo should not fold their hands when the Federal Government, her army and security forces as well as the insurgent herdsmen have invaded and occupied Alaigbo, terrorizing and brutalising the citizens,” the ADF alleged.
Similarly, UASAC, in a statement by its president, Chief Chuks Ejikeme, and the public relations officer, Mr Ifeanyi Ilukwe, condemned the extrajudicial killing of the police officers and civilians, as well as the destruction of properties at Ejiofor’s compound, in order to prevent future occurrence.
However, the organisation appealed to the police to handle the case with best practices’ principle, just as it maintained that the association was committed to the general security and stability of the nation at large.
While condoling with the police and families of the slain officers, called on President Muhammadu Buhari, as the chief security officer of the country, to do all within his power to bring the perpetrators to justice.
On his part, the national president of
ASETU, Chief Emeka Diwe, however, urged Nigerians to always speak out in cases of abuse of power by law enforcement agencies, even as he described the recent incident as “reprehensible and outrageous, hence “must be condemned by everyone who means well for the country
Femi Adesina Reacts To Punch Decision To Now Refer To Buhari As ‘Military Dictator’
The Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has reacted to the decision by a Nigerian National Daily, Punch Newspaper to henceforth refer to the President as Major General, a rank he earned as a military dictator in the 80s.
In a notice titled “Buhari’s lawlessness: Our Stand”, Punch stated that it will “henceforth prefix Buhari’s name with his rank as a military dictator in the 80s ‘Major General’ and refer to his administration as a regime until they purge themselves of their insufferable contempt for the rule of law.” Read here.
Femi Adesina took to his Twitter handle Wednesday morning to react to Punch’s decision.
He wrote, “If you decide to call him Major General, he wasn’t dashed the rank, he earned it. So, you are not completely out of order. The fact that you can do so is even another testimony to press freedom in Nigeria.”

…There May Not Be A Nigeria Left In 2023 – Fani-Kayode
A former Minister of Aviation and chieftain of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Femi Fani-Kayode has warned that Nigeria may disintegrate before 2023.
It would be recalled that the Arewa Youth Consultative Forum (AYCF) had said the North may not hand over to the South in 2023 if the alleged humiliation of Northerners continues in Yoruba land.
The AYCF alleged that members of the Lagos Task Force were invading homes of Northerners in Lagos in ungodly hours of the night and forcefully taking away their motorcycles while detaining the owners and riders as well.
“it is even strange that this is coming from the Southwest, a region that expects the North to hand over the 2023 Presidency to its own.”
“We have reason to now wonder if the Southwest truly expects the North to make it a successor in 2023,” the group said.
Reacting in a post on his verified page on micro-blogging site, Twitter, on Tuesday, Fani-Kayode warned the group to stop issuing threats to the south.
He wrote, “Don’t expect us to hand over to you in 2023′ – Arewa Youths to SW.
“Who are you? Are you God? Do you own the power? Were you born to rule? Are southerners your slaves?
“You came from Futa Jalon in 1804 and met us here. Stop your f*ckery or there may not be a Nigeria left in 2023!”
