The President of the Association of Industrial Security and Safety Operators of Nigeria, Dr Ona Ekhomu, has urged the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to assemble an investigative task force to probe and bring to book those who killed four policemen in Edo State recently.
Four police were on March 13, 2019 killed by some gunmen at the Afuze Police Station in Edo State.
The victims were the station’s Divisional Police Officer, Tosimani Ojo; the Divisional Crime Officer, Inspector Sado Isaac; Woman Sergeant Justina Aghomon, who was said to be pregnant; and Corporal Glory David.
Ekhomu said on Thursday that the “brutal, pre-meditated and cowardly execution” of the four police personnel was an act of barbarism and savagery which must not go unpunished.
The security expert said, “Just like the killers of a former Chief of Defence Staff, Air Chief Marshal Alex Badeh, were found by a matrix team comprising of the Department of State Services, Military Provost and Naval Provost, among others, a similar team should be assembled to find the killers of the Afuze policemen.”
Launching a social media campaign with the hashtag, #FindTheRealKillersOf TheAfuzePolice, Ekhomu urged that a reward of N10m be announced for anyone with information on the killers.
Ekhomu said though he was aware that a spokesperson for the Edo State government had announced the capture of the “killers” barely two days after the incident, however, there should be a more thorough investigation to ensure that the real suspects were arrested.
