Group asks court to compel DSS, IGP to investigate Omo-Agege
The Incorporated Trustees of Empowerment for Unemployed Youths Initiative on Monday, asked the Federal High Court, Abuja to compel the Director- General, Department of State Services, (DSS) and the Inspector- General of Police to investigate the Deputy Senate President, Ovie Omo-Agege.
A motion ex parte filed by the group further prayed the court to order Omo-Agege to step down from office as deputy senate president pending the completion of the investigation.
Counsel to the group, Mr Edward Omaga said his client asked the deputy senate president to step down to allow for transparent and fair investigation and to also prevent him from interfering with the investigation.
The group also prayed the court to declare that refusal of the DSS and the IGP to investigate Omo-Agege would be deemed unjustifiable, wrongful and tantamount to dereliction of duties under the relevant laws that established them.
According to Omaga, in the affidavit attached to the motion exparte, until the DSS and the IGP are compelled by an order of the court, they will continue to refuse to investigate Omo-Agege.
The plaintiff said in the suit that it was convinced that any action or inaction of persons occupying elective and appointive position would have a direct impact on the overwhelming unemployed youths in the country.
No date has, however been fixed for hearing in the suit.

Assault: Woman writes IGP, demands N200m compensation
Mrs Adetola Abdulazeez, the woman who was assaulted by two police officers enforcing the lockdown directive in Osun, has petitioned the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu, demanding a compensation of N200 million.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the woman, a wife and mother of two, was flogged by the policemen on her way to buy drugs for her relatives at a pharmacy in Odo Ori Market in Iwo, Osun, on April 18.
The incident which attracted public outcry, including that of the Oluwo of Iwo and the Osun State Government, also attracted the attention of the IGP who immediately ordered for the officers dismissal.
However, the victim through her lawyer Mr Pelumi Olajengbesi, in a pre-action notice submitted to the IGP on Monday and obtained by NAN, said her client was also demanding an apology for her battered image.
”We commend the swift intervention of the Inspector General of Police and that of other top Nigeria Police Force hierarchy, condemning the unprofessional conduct of the officers involved and the assurance of disciplinary action.
”While we recognise the authority of the Nigeria Police Force in containing the movement of people during this COVID-19 crisis, we believe strongly that same must be done in compliance with the rule of law.
”The video of the disgraceful act meted out on our client has since gone viral on the internet and has ridiculed her publicly, as she was seen being battered like a common thief by men of the Nigeria Police Force.
”We hereby demand that the Nigeria Police Force should address a letter of apology to our client personally showing honest concern and contrition to begin to ameliorate the continuous sadness and depression she continues to suffer.
”That the payment of N200 million be made to our client as general damages for all the pain, trauma, bodily inconveniences and public ridicule amongst others, caused her and her family during this period,” he said.
Olajengbesi, further stated that on behalf of the victim, he was also demanding the immediate prosecution of the officers involved in the criminal act, in the Nigeria Open Court.
He stated that security agents should discharge their duties during the lockdown in line with international best practices and in accordance with the guidelines stipulated by the United Nations.
In his reaction, the Force Public Relation Officer, Frank Mba, told NAN that the police had already dismissed the officers in question and would prosecute them if need be.
Mba also said that the police had yet to see the woman’s petition on the demand of N200 million compensation and an apology letter.
The Nigeria Police Force had on April 24 through its official twitter handle said: “that Inspector Ikuesan Taiwo and Police Constable Abass Ibrahim, captured in a viral video assaulting a woman in Osun State have been tried and found guilty.
”They have been dismissed from the Force. They will be arraigned in court for prosecution.”

NHRC urges IGP to fish out personnel who shot at commission’s premises in Maitama
NHRC urges IGP to fish out personnel who shot at commission’s premises in Maitama: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) has urged the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) to fish out those behind the alleged shooting on premises of the commission on Monday.
The Executive Secretary of the NHRC, Mr Tony Ojukwu, made the call while showing newsmen around the premises where the alleged damage caused by bullets during the shooting occurred.
He also urged the Attorney-General, Mr Abubakar Malami to intervene.
“Some shots were fired at the commission around noon.
“As you can see, these are the bullet holes on the building and damaged cars
“The police supposedly tear-gassed members of the banned Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) who were protesting on the Aguiyi Ironsi street where the head office of the NHRC is located.
“Other government agencies along the street may have felt the effect of the tear-gas but none reported live bullet shots into their compounds destroying official and personal property’’, he said.
While expressing displeasure over the attack, Ojukwu urged the IGP to fish out those behind the attack and emphasised the need for the commission to be adequately protected.
“The commission requests that there must be accountability for these attacks.
“It is because the earlier attacks were not punished that this reoccurrence has happened.
“We, therefore, call on the Commissioner of Police FCT, IGP and the Minister of Justice to take immediate action in line with their duties to safeguard the commission in the performance of its duties,’’ Ojukwu said.

IGP decries mix-up of security, political issues
Adamu stated in Abuja during a courtesy visit by Executive Members of the Alumni Association of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies.
He said securing the country was a herculean task because of various issues that were mixed up with security.
Adamu said political, ethnic and religious issues were not supposed to be brought on board in line with securing the country.
According to him, some people make use of the issues to create impressions that there is insecurity everywhere.
“Apart from insurgency, we had some issues in the Northwestern part of the country and the situation was bad before the inception of the current Federal Government administration.
“The issue was aggravated by some political undertone and immediately the political problems were addressed, the crime situation suddenly went down.
“The problem in the Northwest is an issue of some group of people being deprived of their means of livelihood and they have to fight back to survive and in the process we had conflicts,” he said.
He said one of the ways to address conflict and insecurity was through good governance
According to him, the federal government can never be left alone to deal with security issues, because, if we are having insecurity, there must be a cause.
“The causes must be dealt with before we can achieve good security and the causes could be lack of employment, poverty or injustice
“Those that are responsible in addressing those issues are really the politicians, the state governors.
“A lot of things are left for the federal government alone to do. If the state governors take responsibility of providing necessary social amenities within their states, the rate of crime will reduce,” he added.
He said the police would continue to ensure that crime rate is reduced through strategies to be implemented gradually.
“We know that we cannot do it alone, because it is believed that the security of lives and property is the responsibility of government but every citizen is supposed to be involved.
“It is on that ground that we came up with the community policing strategy where everybody within the community must be involved in securing their environment,” he said.
He said the police had sensitised the entire country on the concept of the principle of community policing.
According to him, we are at the implementation stage, we have compiled names of eminent persons, traditional rulers, faith based organisation leaders, National Union of Road Transport Workers and market women to form committees.
He said the committees, at national, state, senatorial, local government and ward levels would help to drive the community policing initiative.
In his remark, Mr Mohammed Abubakar, President of the association, said the visit was to identify with the I-GP and associate with his good work in policing the country.

Former IGP Abubakar eulogises FRSC boss, Oyeyemi
The President, Alumni Association of the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (AANI), former IGP Mohammed Abubakar, has commended the Corps Marshal, Federal Road Safety Corps, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi for repositioning the Corps.
The Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO) Mr Bisi Kazeem disclosed this in a statement made available to Nigeria News Agency on Tuesday in Abuja.
According to Kazeem, the retired IGP stated this during a visit of AANI Exexutives to FRSC Headquarters.
Speaking during the visit, Abubakar lauded Oyeyemi after a facility tour of the critical installations at the National Headquarters saying the service had since took a new shape.
“What I have seen here today was not on ground five years ago. Oyeyemi is a man of vision, as such am not surprised to see what I have seen today.
“He is a silent achiever, not lousy and does not blow his trumpet and we are here to tell the world these great achievements,” he said.
Responding, Oyeyemi thanked the retired IGP and commended him for the continuous support he had shown to the Corps both in service and in retirement.
He noted that the present achievements of the Corps were realised as a result of the collective energy and ideas of the entire management team and staff of the Corps.
“The Corps has strategically organised retreats and workshops on ‘thinking outside the box’ in the recent past and the impact of that has enhanced the work process tremendously.
“We are also broadening our coverage for robust data gathering and management. As such, the Corps has just established Command and Staff College in Enugu State.
“The Academy is awaiting the final lap of approval for its upgrade to a degree awarding institution, ” he said. NAN)

Reps commend IGP, Runsewe for protecting Arts, Crafts Village
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, and Mr Olusegun Runsewe, Director-General (DG), National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), have been commended for protecting public property the Arts and Crafts Village in Abuja.
The Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Tourism, Rep. Omoregie Ogbeide-Ihama, made the commendation during a visit to the Arts and Crafts Village in Abuja.
He noted that some unpatriotic people had attempted to convert the property to personal use.
Ogbeide-Ihama said this in a statement issued to newsmen in Abuja by Runsewe’s media aide, Mr Frank Meke.
Ogbeide-Ihama representing Oredo Federal Constituency in Edo, condenmed the situation where private individuals convert government property to personal uses, and extolled the IGP and DG for securing the permanent site of NCAC.
He said that they had remained unwavering in their commitment to protecting government property.
Some members of the committee who accompanied their chairman also expressed their pleasure with efforts made to refurbish village, adding that there is need to secure and maintain such public places.
They said they would support the council as it sought to reopen the village.
Runsewe, while conducting the committee members round the village with NCAC management, said that no stone would be left unturned to rebuild the place to meet international standards.
The Nigeria News Agency gathered that the village, located opposite Abuja Sheraton Hotels, valued at N9.8 billion, was hijacked by some individuals who wanted to use the place for their selfish interests.
This generated disagreements between the individuals and NCAC, with the council battling to secure the ownership of the property.

NAN further reports that the closed door meeting was still going on as at 1:15pm while invited guests including royal fathers, members of the clergy, Ohaneze Ndigbo and security agencies were left at the venue of the event.
However, some of the dignitaries at the event including traditional rulers and the President General of Ohaneze Ndigbo, Chief John Nwodo staged a walkout in protest of keeping them waiting without any information.
Prior to the walkout, the Archbishop of Enugu Ecclesiastical Province and Bishop of Enugu Diocese of Anglican Communion, Bishop Emmanuel Chukwuma had addressed the audience.
Chukwuma, in his speech, said that it was unfair for the governors of the zone to treat them with contempt, adding that such would not happen elsewhere.

Ansaru operations: IGP urges patriotism among Nigerians
The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Mohammed Adamu has called for patriotism among Nigerian to ensure successful fight against criminals in the country.
The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), DCP Frank Mba disclosed this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
Mba said three more suspects has been arrested in the ongoing mop-up operations by police operatives at the operational bases of the Ansaru Terrorists’ Group in Kuduru Forest, Birnin-Gwari, Kaduna State.
He said the suspects were assisting police investigators with useful information relating to the membership spread and make-up, criminal/operational records, logistics and general modus operandi of the terror group.
Mba said that investigation had revealed that the arrested suspects were involved in the attempted kidnap of the Emir of Potiskum that resulted in the gruesome killing of the Emir’s police escorts.
According to him, they were also involved in several other kidnap operations and terror attacks on commuters and other innocent citizens along some major highways in the country.
“Unfortunately, investigation also reveals that some citizens, especially those within the business community, give tacit support to the terror groups.
“They do this by deliberately doing businesses with them through the supply of essential goods, illicit drugs and other services.
“To this end; the IGP calls for patriotism among the people, noting that this is the only way the fight against the criminal elements can truly be won,” he said.
Mba said the police operatives were on the close trail of other fleeing members of the terror groups and their collaborators.
The FPRO said the IGp had expressed appreciation to all and sundry, especially the good people of Birnin-Gwari and environs for their understanding, cooperation and support.
He attributed the successes recorded in the ongoing fight against terrorism, banditry and other heinous crimes in the country to the cooperation of Nigerians.
