…Five Policemen
To Be Sacked
For Aiding
Escape Of
Five persons
have been killed
in a renewed
boundary crisis between Itim-Amagu in
Ikwo local government area of Ebonyi state
and Adadama people of Cross River state.
Confirming the incident to journalists
yesterday, the local government chairman
of Ikwo, John Nnabo said the deceased
were from Ikwo, noting that the beheaded
bodies of the victims have been recovered
while three others have been declared
Nnabo noted he was called on Thursday
morning by his Vice over the incident,
adding that the victims had gone to the
area to uproot their cassava and other food
crops only to be surrounded by the
warlords of Adadama who unleashed
mayhem on them.
Nnabo pointed out that the problem has
persisted because the Adadama people
would always cross the river boundary to
the Ebonyi side to humiliate them.
In another development, five policemen
have been arrested and are currently
undergoing orderly trials for aiding the
escape of a murder suspect, Ogonna Alioka
aka “Pilot” and other suspects of various
offences from the police cell in the state
Briefing newsmen, the Commissioner of
Police, Titus Lamorde noted that the
deceased was kidnapped from her home
on January 18, 2017 at Egba Amanye
community in Ivo LGA, murdered and
buried in a shallow grave at Lopkpanta
forest in Abia state.
“After his arrest, Ogonna was helping the
police to nab the two other gang members
but unfortunately, on the night of October
22, policemen of the state CIID on Cell/
Counter duty allowed Ogonna Alioka and
three other suspects escape. The policemen
on duty that day have all been arrested,
detained, defaulted and tried in an orderly
room,” he said.
