Police arrest 14 invaders of Odili’s residence


Police operatives described as fake, 14 of them, who invaded Justice Mary Odili’s residence on October 29 are in the net.

The fake officers were said to have been led by a self-acclaimed Chief Superintendent of Police , Lawrence Ajojo, who confessed that he is not an officer of the force.

Parading the suspects, on Thursday at the Force Criminal Investigation Department, Garki, Abuja Force spokesman, Frank Mba, said the suspects came from different professional backgrounds.

In an interview with newsmen during the parade, the fake CSP, Ajojo admitted that “he’s not an officer of the Nigeria Police.”

There has been several  reactions across  the country on the siege laid to the Odili residence by men suspected to be men of the Department  of State Security ostensibly  executing a  court warrant.

Meanwhile, the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami has reacted to the confession of a suspect arrested for the invasion of the residence of Supreme Court Justice, Mary Peter Odili

A statement on Thursday by his spokesman, Umar Gwandu, said with all the competent professionals at Malami’s disposal, it is only evil minds that will assume the AGF engaged “a quack or fake police officer to serve as his consultant”.

The minister’s called the allegation of his accuser a case of a drowning man scavenging for a dying partner.

Malami noted that investigation has commenced to unravel the circumstances, personalities behind the invasion and the sponsored campaign of calumny against him.

Gwandu said the probe would disclose those after the AGF, those dragging his personality, his name and his exalted office in the dirty politics of disrepute.

“This is an orchestrated attempt to stir unnecessary controversies and Public apprehension.

“We asked the suspect to present documents of engagements where he worked as a consultant to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, whether in past or now.

“Consultant for what? Which activity or assignment? When was he engaged? What were the terms of references for the alleged consultancy service? When was he engaged?

“Where was he engaged? Which worked has he executed for the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and the Ministry of Justice? For what duration? And for how much?

“We boldly and unequivocally challenge the fake consultant/police officer to come out with answers or responses to these questions to the general public.”

Malami said he superintends over and respects the rule of law and will not do anything to undermine the sanctity of his office and the entire judiciary.
