In a statement on Friday, the Police Public Relations Officer in Ogun, SP Abimbola Oyeyemi, said “the modus operandi of the serial killer is to pretend as a commercial motorcyclist popularly known as okada rider and pick his targeted victim as a passenger.”

Such victims, Oyeyemi said, are mainly women, who would be “taken to an isolated area, raped and brutally murdered in cold blood.”

According to the police spokesperson, the command is making efforts to apprehend the hoodlum; adding however, that it is necessary to alert the public to be on their guard and be wary of any okada rider with whom they want to embark on a journey, especially at night.

“For safety reasons, the command hereby advises that passengers should endeavour to demand the phone number of any okada rider who wants to carry them in the night.

“They should also make a call to such a number to ascertain its authenticity.

“This will give security agencies a lead in their investigation in the event of any untoward development,” Oyeyemi advised.

A Spirit Made Me Slaughter My 11-month-old Child - Mother

A woman identified as Mrs Blessing Eno in Yonen community , Ugep, Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River has killed her 11- month-old baby because a spirit asked her to do so.

The tragic incident which occured on Tuesday has left many in the community bewildered as the circumstances leading to the dastardly act were strange.

The mother of two who may be suffering from Schizophrenia (mental disorder) took out a matchet and cut off the head of the baby, claiming that the child was disturbing her and a spirit instructed her to slaughter the boy.

An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity disclosed that it was her eight-year-old son who stumbled on the gory sight of his headless brother and a blood drenched mother who  raised the alarm that attracted neighbours to the scene of the crime.

However,  the timely intervention of the police, who immidiately took the lady into protective custody, before ferrying her out of Ugep averted an angry mob from extra- judicially killing her at the station.

Meanwhile, the Obol Lopon of Ugep and Paramount Ruler of Yakurr LGA, HRM. Obol Ofem Ubana Eteng, has expressed shock over the tragic incident while calling for calm.

The monarch also, assured the people that he was certain that the police would handle the matter professionally to a logical conclusion.

“We appealed directly to young people in Ugep, to toe the path of peace and rational thought in the face of this heinous crime and they positively responded.

“We are in shock but we are calm and have left this matter in the hands of the police, I can assure you that there will be no reprisal action because we must remain law-abiding,” he said.

Where Is Anochie Fidel Ezechukwu ?

Where Is Anochie Fidel Ezechukwu ?

By Ijeoma F.
This is Mr Anochie Ezechukwu, known as ‘Wiselabour’. On Tuesday the 2nd of August, 2022, he woke up like every other hard-working, responsible family man and went about his normal business. He runs a bar/relaxation spot at his home town in Ukpor, Nnewi South Local Government Area of Anambra State. His business has been boosting the economy of his community in its little way…

Mr. Ezechukwu was preparing for the day’s business when Men of the Nigerian Army and other security forces in full uniform with about 20 vehicles in convoy invaded his business premises and totally destroyed his bar! They tied him up like a ram about to be slaughtered, inflicted some injuries on him and took him away to an unknown destination.

Note that in all these, Mr. Ezechukwu was never on the run, never had any criminal questions/allegations/records on his head, was not in hiding, and never gave any form of resistance to the arrest. So why tie him up like a chicken? Why trample on his human dignity? Why strip him naked him and reduce him to nothingness? Why destroy his place of business? WHY, WHY, WHY?

Till date none of his family members, wife, friends have been able to locate him

The accusation against Mr. Ezechukwu is that unknown gunmen may be patronizing his business….Like how on Earth are we reduced to this level in this country? How can the offence of someone who manages a bar/relaxation spot be that “Unknown gunmen” come to take a drink in his establishment?

These are supposed to be UNKNOWN gunmen right? So if they are unknown to the army and all the security formations whose job it is to catch them , then how come these security formations that know these unknown gunmen and the fact that they visit Mr. Ezechukwu’s place of business left the unknown gunmen and more or less “kidnapped” Mr. Ezechukwu? Something is not right!

This fate that has befallen Mr Ezechukwu is duplicated all over South East. You are an endangered species if you are a young man living in any part of the South East especially in Imo and some parts of Anambra.

The general public should please come to the aid of the family. Help me ask questions. Where is Mr. ANOCHIE FIDEL EZECHUKWU? HQ Nigerian Army , Nigerian police , members of civil societies, ordinary Nigerians, the masses help us please.

The life of Mr. Ezechukwu, a responsible hardworking Nigerian must not be wasted just like that. He is a family man. His wife must not be made a widow for no just cause.

All the family ask is that they know his whereabouts. It is his constitutional right to be entitled to fair hearing, and be treated with dignity no matter the allegation. He has the right to his family and legal representation!
