An Umuahia Chief Magistrates’ Court presided by Chief Magistrate John Ukpai, on Thursday, remanded Inspector Nwitoka Nwinee, Sergeants Emeto Godwin and Chigozie Onina in prison custody for unlawfully killing Joseph Oduluso, Odichi Sampson and Obinna Innocent at Ntigha Okpuala in Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area of Abia State.

Recall that the suspects (Policemen) on 5th of March, 2018 allegedly murdered the deceased persons at Ntigha Okpuala.

When the charge was read, Chief magistrate Ukpai declined jurisdiction to hear it and transferred the case file to the Attorney General of the state for necessary action.

Meanwhile, human rights and constitutional lawyer, Dr Anthony Agbazuere who is also counsel to the complainants, said he had petitioned the Inspector General of Police over the gruesome murder of the deceased persons and the police boss directed the Abia state commissioner to investigate the case.

According to him,”Three policemen recklessly on the 5th of March, this year went to a village called Ntigha in Isiala Ngwa North Local Government Area, used the government rifle, AK 47 that they were given and killed three young men.

“The chiefs and village heads ran to me as a human rights lawyer. I confirmed it to be true, so I had to go to the Inspector General of Police in Abuja and reported and he swiftly directed the commissioner of police in Abia to take action.

“I want to commend the Inspector General of Police and the Abia State commissioner of police for not being partial because the people were police officers. If things would be done this way by every sector in Nigeria, I think it will be better,” Dr. Agbazuere said.
