May 29: IG Orders Beef Up Of Security Nationwide

Solomon-AraseAhead of the May 29 hand over date, the Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has ordered Zonal Assistant Inspectors-General of Police and Command Commissioners of Police to beef up security around all key and vulnerable installations nationwide.

The IG directed that critical infrastructures like petrol refilling stations, major hotels, National and State Houses of Assembly complexes, Eagle Square, Abuja, and other public places should be protected ahead of the inauguration of new administrations in the country in about a week time from now.

Arase, in a statement on Thursday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, explained that the move was necessary to ward off possible plans by insurgents to carry out violent and coordinated attacks on various installations and public places during the hand-over ceremony.

The IG also urged members of the public to continue collaborating with officers and men of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies to stamp out crimes, including terrorism.

The statement noted that the Nigeria Police had perfected strategies to prepare a safe and secure ground for hitch-free inauguration of new governments nationwide.



    Dear Inspector General of Police Solomon Arase,

    It is with great pleasure and sincerity I congratulate you on your recent anti-cultist campaign in Edo State which has led to so many arrests.

    However the reason for writing is not for the want to congratulate you.

    Although the arrests of Osunde Aigbedo (48, Neo Black Movement and Executive Director, Special Duties, Government House, Edo State, ), Ahunwan-Id (39, Neo Black Movement), Ernest Amadasun (49, Neo Black Movement), Isabor Larry (34, staff of Edo State House of Assembly) , Uche Chukwuka, (36, the Private Secretary to the Chairman, Committee on Environment, Ministry of Environment, Edo State), Salako Adebowale (43, Neo Black Movement) , Felix O Evbod (34, Neo Black Movement) and some 100 other cultists others are laudable….

    There is till very much work still to do be done. Still holding very prominent and visible positions in our society there remains still hundreds of others.

    May I please draw your attention to the following:

    Augustus Bemigho-Eyeoyibo aka Oritsebemigho Eyeoyibo aka Lord Aare Ona Kakanfo is the head of NBM and owner of the Lagos hotel ‘Roseview Court’. He recently ran for election in Warri North. He is still at large.

    Tony Adun (Tony Kabaka), also a NBM cultist. A thug who thinks ok to have gun fights with other workers in Government and yet is Special Assistant to the Governor on Neighbourhood Watch. He is still at large.

    Chief Osamede Adun (Bob Izua) also a NBM cultist. NBM Mafia kingpin and cultist. He is still at large.

    Isimeme Iriogbe aka Lord Jaja of Opobo 1 is the former head of NBM and now Edo state commissioner for transport. He is still at large.

    Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomholewho is also known to sponsor cultists for election rigging. NBM Mafia kingpin and cultist. He is still at large.

    Dr. Mayor Onyebueke akso a former head of NBM. NBM Mafia kingpin and cultist. He is still at large.

    Osaro Obazee, also a NBM cultist, is Executive Chairman of Oredo local government. He is still at large.

    These people are highly placed in society but: “no criminal will be spared, no matter how highly placed” – Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon E. Arase

    All cultists around the whole country should hunted down for their “roles in acts of terror, vicious inter and intra-cult conflicts that have led to avoidable loss of lives” – Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon E. Arase

    The whole country would welcome and appreciate a broader nationwide assault on cultism.

    Kindest Regards
