EDO CIVIL SOCIETY ORGANISATIONS AUCHI STUDY CENTRE RELEASE A SUSPECT THAT WAS DETAINED ILLEGALLY FOR ONE WEEK
We now have very lazy police officers in Nigeria who will not want to do their job even after collecting mobilization fees from complainants. What their interest is all the time is the bail fees from a detained suspect.
Yesterday being the 21st day of July 2023, we got a call from the family of Mr Irumhe Paul who has been in detention since last week Friday over an alleged theft of PMS as he’s a manager of Win-Oil filling station, Aviele, Estako West LGA
We investigated the story to ascertain the circumstances surrounding his arrest. The said owner of the filling station arrested Mr Paul because they found out that the reserved tank made for PMS was almost empty.
Instead of the police to carry their investigation properly they detained the suspect unlawfully for a week and rendered him incommunicado on the order of the said owner of the filling station. The family of the Mr. Paul carried out their own personal investigation and discovered that the reserved tank at the filling station has a leak underground and it has affected a lot of boreholes around the area and even the water they normally use for their business and household have polluted by the underground leakage of the tank.
After much deliberation, the Section leader of the police investigation team frown at our appearance and was vibrating. We just quickly left him and went to see the Area commander who was on seat.
After our meeting with the area commander, he immediately gave order to the Sectional leader of the investigation team to go and investigate all the borehole user at the said location. The investigation team and our active comrades went to the said location to interview the homeowners of the borehole.
Evidence was brought but would still need the expertise of an expert to confirm what is mixed with the water. On the report of our findings, the Area commander gave an order that the suspect should immediately be released on bail. The Area commander also, advice the owner of the filling station to seek expert to investigate the underground tank to know if there’s an actual leakage.
The suspect was later released on bail and once again, the police confirmed that the EVIAN of EDOCSO is ACTIVE.
