EKITI STATE

 

Ekiti
residents block roads, protest incessant kidnapping
.

ADO-EKITI— RESIDENTS of Ajebandele area, along Ado-Ikere-Akure
road, in Ado-Ekiti, yesterday, blocked the road to protest incessant kidnappings and robberies in that section of the capital city.

The protesters, who were from Irede community, Ajebandele
area of the capital city, were protesting the alleged kidnapping of a Pastor Julius Osunluyi, in the area, on Sunday evening, by suspected abductors.

Gun-wielding men, suspected to be kidnappers, were said
to have besieged the pastor’s church and abducted him.

The highway was on lockdown for several hours, as the
placard-carrying protesters erected barricades on every available space on the highway.

Commuters coming into Ado Ekiti from either Akure or
Ikere and those traveling out of the Metropolis were trapped for several hours with their vehicles stagnant due to the blockade by visibly angered protesters.

Addressing the people, one of the protesters, who identified
himself as Ajayi Olayiwola, said: “The state of insecurity in Irede community area is alarming as we could no longer sleep with our two eyes closed.

“This protest is to call the attention of appropriate
authorities to find a solution to the ugly development, particularly the police.

“This disruption of free flow of vehicles is to send
a signal to the public about our plight and for the police Command to do the right thing.”

We’re investigating pastor’s kidnapping —Police

The Police Public Relations Officer, Ekiti Command, Mr
Sunday Abutu, said: “The police in Ekiti are not taking any chances. We are doing our best to tackle crime and criminality.

“The CP had ordered our patrol teams and a team of detectives
to up their games and ensure that those perpetrating crimes are brought to book.

“If you notice, our night patrol has increased. And the
CP had urged the Rapid Response Squad to trail the alleged kidnappers and bring the man out from their den hale and heart.”

ANAMBRA
STATE

 

Gunmen
kill Police officer, three others in Anambra.

 

Gunmen on Monday, killed four persons, including a police
officer, in two communities in Anambra State, Nigeria’s South-east.

PREMIUM TIMES learnt that two of the victims who were
killed in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area, were brothers.

The duo, identified as Godwin Ikechukwu Modobi and Nnajiofor
Modobi hailed from Umuhu village in the community.

Two other persons were killed near a church, along Udorji
road, Ozubulu, in Ekwusigo Local Government Area of the state.

The latest attacks were coming barely four days
after
about five persons were killed at a beer parlor

in Osumenyi, Nnewi South Local Government Area of the state.

Nnajiofor was said to have been killed in their house,
before his younger brother, Ikechukwu, was blindfolded and abducted by the gunmen.

Ikechukwu was later killed by the gunmen near Utuh Junction.

His corpse was dumped at the center of the road.

In a viral video of the incident which was shared in
various WhatsApp groups, about four fired bullets were seen close to his corpse as blood gushed out.

The police spokesperson in
Anambra
State
, Ikenga Tochukwu, confirmed the incidents.

He said one of the victims of the attack at Utuh was
a police officer, while the second victim was later identified as a former youth chairman in the area.

Mr Ikenga, a deputy superintendent of police, said a
Toyota Camry reportedly belonging to one of the victims was recovered by the police.

“We got information of two lifeless bodies along that
Nnewi/Ozubulu road. Our operatives quickly went there and recovered the two bodies,” he said.

Sit-at-home

In another development, gunmen, believed to be enforcing
the suspended sit-at-home order, attacked a shop owner at a market in Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University, Uli, Ihiala Local Government Area of the state.

The attack happened on Monday near the Uli campus of
the institution formerly known as Anambra State University.

A student of the institution, Lilian Anna, who said the
incident happened close to her lodge, told PREMIUM TIMES, that the gunmen were angry that the shop owner opened for business on a sit-at-home day.

She said:
“They did not kill anybody. The man they attacked has a chemist shop. He opened his shop and at the same time switched on his generator. He was the only one who opened today.

 

“So, they (gunmen) came there, beat him up and set his generator ablaze.”

Attacks by gunmen have increased in the South-east in recent times. The attacks often
target security agencies and government facilities.

The Nigerian government has accused the outlawed
Indigenous
People of Biafra (IPOB)
of being responsible for the deadly attacks in
the South-east. But the group has repeatedly denied their involvement in the attacks.

IPOB, a secessionist group, is leading agitation for an independent state of Biafra
to be carved out from the South-east and some parts of the South-south Nigeria.

Leader of the proscribed group, Nnamdi Kanu, is currently being detained in Abuja where
he is facing trial for alleged treason.
