Emene Massacre: IGP may be tried, as AIG expresses regrets over security operatives’ unprofessional role

There are strong indications that the security operatives involved in the killing of some members of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) may face litigation abroad, EveryDayNewsNgr reports.

Already a suit is being perfected against the Inspector General of Police to be prosecuted in any of the twenty-seven countries in Europe in order to bring the perpetrators to book.

This is coming as the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) zone 13 Ukpo, Anambra State Mr. Danmallam Mohammed expresses regret over the killings in Emene Enugu State describing it as unbecoming and unfortunate.

A United Kingdom based Human Right Lawyer Barr Paul Nwachalla who spoke to reporters on phone yesterday announced that;

“Even though the Nigerian government claims to have outlawed IPOB there are concluded arrangements to sue the Inspector General of Police and the Nigerian Police force under what is called extended jurisdiction over extra judicial killings”.

The AIG zone 13 has acknowledge the fact of killing as well as conflicting figures in the number of death hence confirming that the police, DSS and Army are culpable.

“No law allows security operatives to judge any suspect and convict him as they did in Enugu hence they should stop arrogating the powers of the judiciary”.

DanMallam said, “the incident is unbecoming and unfortunate and the zone has employed best security strategies to prevent future occurrences.  

 “The zone under my watch will continue to maintain peace, law and order in Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi States. I stand for justice, human right, constitutionalism, peace and development. I say no to torture, illegal arrest and detention, intimidation, and abuse of power.

“You can’t get development in atmosphere of crisis. Northerners migrating to South East are doing that because the zone is peaceful. We should continue in making the zone peaceful,” he added.
