He further said, “I led the team that visited entrance to Adetunji Estate that evening. Before she started vomiting blood, the lady told me she was living in Ofatedo, though an indigene of Sagamu in Ogun State.

“She said three men had taken her from another hotel in Ofatedo and took her to a hotel around West Bye pass. At the hotel, they told her she would have sex with the three of them, but the lady said she told them she could only have sex with two men.

“While bathing with one of the men, the suspected ritualist hit the lady with a charm on the head and she became almost unconscious.”

“She was still talking to me when she started vomiting blood. Because it was late, I asked the night guard working in the area to watch over her, while I arrange ambulance. By the time I returned to the scene, that her friend she told me of, had brought a bus to carry her. It was such a pathetic story.”

Shittu said operatives of the corps already had some leads through the mobile phone of the victim and promised that the suspects would be apprehended.

Saudi policemen on duty

A Nigerian medical doctor resident in Saudi Arabia, Omafuvwe Jerome Ighowho has appealed to the Director-General of the Nigerians in Diaspora Commission (NIDCOM), Abike Dabiri-Erewa to come to his aid in the custody of the law enforcement agents.

Ighowho made the appeal following an incident of alleged assault levelled against him by his Sudanese colleague identified as Dr Adel Idris, over which he had been detained by the Saudi police.

According to a letter addressed to the commission and copied to the Nigerian Consulate General in Jeddah, the medical doctor revealed that he had only been in Saudi Arabia for 23 months before Idris developed a brawl against him.

As reported by Nigeria Abroad, they both work with Tabalah General Hospital, Tabalah, Bisha City, Aseer region of the country and had never fought before until an unfortunate incident where their play led to a minor injury on Idris’s right knee.

He added that the incident has led to him being held in custody indefinitely with no help in view despite his failing health situation.

The letter read: “I am Omafuvwe Jerome Ighowho with passport number A12519900 and NIN 10418960616 Iquama 2492447301. I have been living in Saudi Arabia for about 23 months at Tabalah General Hospital, Tabalah, Bisha City, Aseer region.

“I am from Ughelli North LGA, Delta State and my permanent address is at House 28 Sheraton Estate Abule Oko Agbado, Ogun State. +966533818972 and ±2347067624826.

“On July 30, 2022, I had an incident with my fellow Sudanese doctor. After the resumption of duty, I decided to greet other doctors who were to work with me for the shift.

“Then I saw Dr Adel Idris and another Dr Isiah Awuri. I was explaining to Dr Isiah that Dr Adel Idris normally comes to work late and that day he also came late. Then Dr Adel Idris approached me and was saying why would I say he comes to work late.

“He said this with laughter and jokes but he held my two arms. I was laughing and also held him in the same manner as I was thrown off balance because of the firm grip from Adel (the Sudanese doctor) just to attain a good balance.

“We were both laughing and I then pushed him back to release myself from him as Dr Isiah (my Nigerian colleague) kept saying we should stop this rough play.

“Unfortunately, he struck his leg on the wall and fell down after which I assisted him up onto an examination bed. Thereafter, he said his knees were hurt and had an X-ray which showed he had a less than 2cm fracture on the right knee.

“Dr Isiah observed what happened and that we were not involved in a scuffle but a friendly encounter. Also, Dr Mai, a female Sudanese doctor, briefly saw we were joking and walked away.

“About some hours later, Dr Adel Idris came with the police, claiming that I assaulted him. I asked him did I assault you? He said No, then why call police?

“He never answered. This was on several occasions. On explaining to the hospital management, they understood the situation and pleaded with him not to go forward with his complaint, but he insisted.”

The letter stated further: “The whole hospital management and Sudanese community have pleaded and even offered him financial compensation, change of hospital and job description, but he declined all.

“Moreover, the policemen at the station also pleaded with him to resolve this issue amicably, but he declined. At this point, everyone has been trying to get to him to plead with him. Yet he is nowhere to be found neither does he pick his calls nor respond to messages.

“I have been in police custody for days with no progress on the issue. My health has been affected and no one to assist me as I do not know anyone in the community and even Saudi as a whole.

“I am pleading with the Nigerian Government, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa and the Nigerian in Diaspora Commission to intercede on my behalf so that I can have a quick resolution to this matter and attend to my health.

“I am frustrated with the situation, as I am deteriorating physically and mentally in the cell. Please assist me swiftly.”

A tanker fire incident at the Nkwelle Ezunaka area, near Onitsha, Anambra State, raged for hours on Saturday as angry residents chased away firefighters for reportedly responding late to their distress call.

A tanker carrying petroleum product fell into a ditch in the community and was engulfed in flames, causing panic among the people in the area.

The tanker driver was said to have lost control, making the articulated vehicle to fall into the ditch, spilling its content and resulting in a major fire.

It was gathered that the residents fled their homes for fear of being caught up in the flame.

Firefighters deployed in the area were chased back by irate mob, who protested their delay in arriving at the scene.

The mob attacked the firefighters with stones and other dangerous weapons, causing the firefighters to make a U-turn and left the area for fear of their equipment being destroyed too.

Confirming the incident, the head of Anambra State Fire Service, Mr Martin Agbili, lamented the poor attitude of members of the community towards the firefighters.

Agbili, however, said police operatives and members of Nkwelle Ezunaka community vigilante were able to render assistance.

He added that two persons involved in pelting stones at his men had been arrested, while others had fled the scene.

“Having engaged the Nigeria Police Force and the Vigilante, two persons among those that threw stones on my men have been arrested and some identified ones are still on the run.
