Just In: Justice Odili’s Home Invasion: NPF Arrests 14 Suspects

Following the widespread criticisms from different quarters of the country, condemning the invasion of Justice Mary Odili’s Abuja home, the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, who had earlier denied knowledge of the home attack, has swiftly moved into action resulting in the arrest of fourteen (14) suspected persons.

 

Reports gathered by our team, revealed that out of the arrested persons, there is a fake Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP Lawrence Ajodo, an unnamed Journalist, and an Islamic scholar.

 

Police spokesman, Frank Mba, confirmed the development in Abuja, where the suspects were paraded on Thursday, November 11.

Frank Mba said, the arrest was followed by a discreet investigation into the case by men of the Police Force intelligence team; adding that, some of the individuals involved in the crime, among which are two (2) military personnel, are still at large.

 

The Supreme Court Justice Mary Odili’s Friday, 29th October, 2021 home invasion, drew widespread condemnation from the Nigerian Senate, the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA), state governors,  human rights lawyer and activist, Femi Falana (SAN), among many others.

 

While the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, (EFCC), has said, there is no truth that its operatives invaded the Justice Odili’s home on the said date, and the Nigeria Police Force, (NPF), denied knowing about the home invasion, or police officers involvement in the incident, relief has finally come following the arrest of the alleged perpetrators.

 

SarahReports had earlier reported how the NPF, under the leadership of Usman Alkali Baba, the Inspector General of Police (IGP), has described the incident as ‘unfortunate’ and ‘unacceptable’, despite distancing itself from the home attack; but made a promise of detailed investigation into the home invasion.
