Nigeria Police blamed us after killing journalist, senior officer - Shiites

The Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN) has denied the killing of a policeman, ASP Ezekiel Adama of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Command.

On Friday, the Police Public Relations, ASP Yusuf Mariam said one of the IMN members stabbed Adama after the annual International Quds day rally turned violent.

Forty-nine suspects are already in detention.

In a statement on Sunday, IMN spokesman, Ibrahim Musa said they were not surprised about the Police claims, noting that the Force earlier blamed Shiites after its operatives allegedly cut the lives of a journalist and an officer.

Musa recalled his alarm that the government had concluded “diabolic plots” to associate the body with terrorism through series of false flag operations.

He stressed that the Police statement was meant to further spread mischief and advised the public to disregard it.

Musa said the 2021 Quds procession was peacefully conducted in at least 30 Nigerian towns and cities, including Kaduna, Kano, Zaria, Sokoto, Katsina and Abuja.

The only difference, according to him, was that a combined team of security forces in Abuja tracked participants on their way home and opened fire.

The IMN media manager confirmed many participants were injured, and scores were arrested “for participating in a peaceful procession that had ended without any incident

Musa recounted how the FCT Police Command tried to frame Shittes on trumped-up charges for action they allegedly perpetrated.

“In 2019, they killed a news reporter and a senior police officer and alleged that both were murdered by members of the Islamic Movement.

“Evidence, including an autopsy report, later proved that both were killed by police bullets. They were unable to prove their allegation in a court of law, where they falsely charged over 60 members.”

The statement demanded the unconditional release of IMN loyalists arrested, adding that the Nigeria Police is responsible for the injuries caused by gunshots on May 7. Dailypost

Nigeria police have put our lives in danger -- Timi Dakolo cries out

Soul singer Timi Dakolo cried to the world on Sunday that the police were allegedly putting the lives of the members of his family at risk as controversy rages over the rape allegation his wife, Busola raised against popular Abuja pastor, Biodun Fatoyinbo of COZA ministry.

At a press conference in Lagos, he wondered why police would storm his residence to invite him and wife for questioning when the alleged rapist, Fatoyinbo was yet to be questioned.
Fatoyinbo allegedly raped Busola, about 20 years back.

Do you have enough money? Do you have everything you've been dreaming of? Are you happy with how your life is going? IF NO THEN EASY EARNING

The music who has been in the eye of the storm since his wife came out with the allegation, questioned the rationale behind the police storming his Lagos home to invite them to Abuja, while Fatoyinbo who is residing in Abuja, was yet to appear at the police headquarters.
When the news of the police invite broke, the First Lady, Aisha Buhari weighed in on Twitter, asking the Inspector General of Police to intervene.
Nigerians were divided on her call to the IG which many saw as a preemptive intrusion into the on-going probe.

Dakolo revealed that last month, he and his wife wrote a petition to the police and they were questioned for six hours by an investigative team, wondering why his wife and himself should be summoned to Abuja again for another round of questioning.
According to him, “On June 27, my wife, through her legal representative, wrote a petition on rape against Mr. Biodun Fatoyinbo. The petition was filed at the Office of the Assistant Commissioner of Police, Alagbon, Ikoyi.

“We had four meetings and about six hours at the police station. The IG personally assigned the file and immediately asked for an action on the case but we deliberately decided not to publicise it because we believed the law would be followed through.

“We had filed the petition before the release of the interview that had been recorded three weeks before. The interview was published on June 28. We have on several occasions met with the police in the course of investigation. We were therefore shocked by the invitation to Abuja when no visible action was taken to interview Mr. Fatoyinbo.”
He alleged that the crisis and the controversy trailing it has endangered his life and that of his wife and their three children.

He added that things got worse when the police revealed their residential address in Lagos to the public, thereby making them susceptible to attacks.
“I didn’t expect that our residential address, where my children live, would be released to the public and since then, we have noticed how my life, my wife’s life and the lives of my children have been put at risk to strange faces around the house,” he stated. (Nigerian Tribune)
