Raiders Of Justice Odili’s Residence Have Been Arrested – IG

Raiders who stormed the residence of Supreme Court judge, Justice Mary Odili, have been arrested, according to Inspector General of Police (IG) Alkali Usman.

He said this in an interview at the Assistant Inspector General (AIG) Zone Two’s two-day capacity building workshop for security operatives in Lagos and Ogun, which was conducted at Victoria Island in Lagos.

On Friday night, armed security officers broke into Justice Odili’s home for reasons that have yet to be determined.

The Attorney General of the Federation (AGF), Abubarkar Malami (SAN), the Department of State Services (DSS), and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) all denied any role in the invasion, which was widely condemned.

Following public outcry, the IG announced on Monday that an inquiry into the incident had begun and that the offenders will be apprehended and prosecuted.

Giving updates on the case, Usman said: “I have taken my time not to speak quickly on this issue to ensure that when I speak, I am able to give Nigerians information on what transpired or what has been done. To the best of my knowledge, we have been able to arrest the perpetrators and we are investigating the circumstances surrounding the invasion or siege on the judge’s residence.”

On the wee-hour attack at University of Abuja (UNIABUJA), Usman said the police and other security agencies were working to ensure the safe rescue of the six persons kidnapped.

“We have information that bandits attacked the University of Abuja and six persons were kidnapped. The police and other security agencies including the military are working to ensure the safe rescue of the victims,” he said.

The IG also dismissed reports that suspended Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Abba Kyari has been recalled as he assured of adequate security in the forthcoming governorship elections in Anambra State.
