Published

on

The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN) has accused the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) of executing two policemen in cold blood.

A statement on Monday by Information Minister, Lai Mohammed declared that IPOB militant wing, Eastern Security Network (ESN) carried out the murder.

In a video seen by DAILY POST, a number of young men, communicating in Igbo language, surrounded two decapitated heads.

They joked, mocked the deceased and repeatedly mentioned that one looked like “Fulani” from the look of his nose.

Mohammed vowed that the culprits behind the “killings, who videotaped their heinous act and circulated such will be apprehended and brought to justice”.

He described the abduction of three policemen and the killing of two of them, “in the most horrific, barbaric and cannibalistic manner, as an unacceptable attack against the state”.

The minister listed the victims as ASP Francis Idoko (AP No. 154945); Inspector Emmanuel Akubo (AP No. 222336) and Inspector Rufai Adamu (AP. No. 285009).

“They were abducted by members of the Eastern Security Network (ESN), acting on the instructions of their leader, Chinonso Okafor, aka TEMPLE, on 27 November 2021.

”Inspectors Akubo and Adamu were killed, their decapitated bodies videotaped and circulated widely. The leader of the ESN team that killed the two officers is one ‘GENTLE’.

“Okafor, the most influential commander of ESN in charge of Imo and the Anambra States, as well as ‘Gentle’ and all those who perpetrated the abhorrent act, will be made to face swift and sure justice,” he said.

Mohammed stressed that the targeting and killing of security agents, under any guise, is a direct attack on Nigeria and will not be
tolerated

Robert Omo, a Nigerian residing in Avellino, southern Italy, has been arrested for the murder of a Chinese man in the country.

According to the Times of Malta, Omo, 24, allegedly bludgeoned the Chinese man to death using a hammer. He was also reported to have injured a Bulgarian during the attack.

The Nigerian was said to have attacked the two men unprovoked on July 30, first striking the 49-year-old Bulgarian from behind and then attacking the 59-year-old Chinese man who had stepped in to prevent him from further assaulting his first victim.

His Edo State counterpart, Chidi Nwabuzor, said from the records available at the State Command, there was no information on the incident.

“You know we transmit our records to Force Headquarters everyday. There is no such record before us. From the Command’s record, no such incident happened yesterday (Friday), so the police will not give account of anything unreported.

“It is only when an incident is reported that the police can act on it. In most cases, citizens are not aware of the powers to report incidents. So the record I have from the Command is that no such incident happened yesterday (Friday), today (Saturday) and even the day before yesterday (Thursday).”
