Policeman, colleagues assault principal, strip female teacher for scolding daughter in Ekiti



The Police in Ekiti has commenced a probe into the intimidation of the principal and teachers of Mary Immaculate Girls’ Grammar School in Ado-Ekiti Local Government Area, by its personnel.

A police officer, Agenoise Elijah and his colleagues had invaded the school on Friday to protest the authorities’ admonition of his daughter.

The girl had gone to school with a hairstyle different from the one allowed by management.

The policemen harassed the principal, tore the dress of a female tutor and seized the mobile phone of another teacher.

Sunday Abutu, the spokesman of the Ekiti Command, assured that the culprits will be sanctioned if found guilty.

“They were said to have harassed the teachers because his daughter was questioned about the style of her hair cut which was not in line with the school’s directive”, he said.

Abutu confirmed that the police sergeant and his colleagues have been identified.
He added that the investigation ordered by the Commissioner of Police has commenced.

The command is working with the ministry of education in Ekiti on the matter. Dailypost

Amotekun Officer Didn’t Shoot Policeman Intentionally, says Oyo Commandant




The Oyo State Security Network Agency, also known as Amotekun Corps, has said its officer, Ibrahim Ogundele, did not intentionally shoot a police constable, Yekini Fatai.

SaharaReporters had earlier reported that Ogundele shot Fatai at a carnival in Sanga, Oyo State on Saturday.

In a statement on Monday, the Commandant of the security outfit in the state, Olayinka Olayanju, said the officer's action was not intentional. 

According to the statement issued through Ayolola Adedoja, spokesman for the security outfit, Amotekun Corps were invited by the police to join them in dismantling a carnival stage, which the police had warned against.

Olayanju said in the process, the Amotekun officer’s gun accidentally discharged and the bullet hit the policeman in the thigh.

He said, “Amotekun operatives were invited by the police to join hands with them to dismantle a carnival stage. The carnival was held against the earlier warnings to the organisers by the police.

“The carnival stage was dismantled unchallenged, but after this, the gun with Ogundele Ibrahim discharged accidentally and hit the community police officer in the thigh. The cause of this (accidental discharge) has not been known.

“Yekini Fatai was rushed to the General Hospital in Oyo town where he was treated and has been discharged.

“I want to state categorically here that there was no feud of any kind between Ogundele Ibrahim and Yekini Fatai to have warranted shooting him.”

Olayanju confirmed that the Amotekun officer had been handed over to the police for proper investigation into the incident.

He added that Amotekun had come under unfair criticisms despite the efforts of the agency to make the state safe. Saharareporters

Policeman guns down 5 colleagues


A policeman from India’s armed border force opened fire on his colleagues Wednesday, killing five of them before turning the gun on himself, police said.
   

   
Constable Musudul Rehman of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police opened fire on his comrades in Chhattisgarh, a restive central state long wracked by a left-wing insurgency.

“He later shot himself after shooting seven personnel,” according to a statement issued by the ITBP. The two injured were being airlifted to state capital Raipur.

Mineral-rich Chhattisgarh is among India’s most impoverished states, where Maoist rebels have been fighting for decades for greater rights over land and resources.

Tens of thousands of soldiers, rebels and others have been killed there since the 1960s. The government has deployed tens of thousands of police and special commandos in a bid to eradicate the groups.

   

    There have been over 300 suicides in the Indian military and a string of so-called “fratricide” incidents since 2016, prompting government initiatives including counsellors, helplines and even yoga.

Separately the military said that four soldiers were killed in Indian-administered Kashmir on Tuesday, three of them in an avalanche and a fourth who died in a blizzard.

Two others died on Saturday in an avalanche some 4,500 metres (18,000 feet) upon the Siachen glacier that is disputed with neighbouring Pakistan and known as the world’s highest militarized zone.

Court remand 3 in prison for beating policeman to death


An Iyaganku Magistrates’ Court, Ibadan, on Tuesday ordered that three men who allegedly beat a policeman to death, be remanded in prison, pending legal advice.

The Magistrate, Mrs Mercy Amole-Ajimoti, ordered that Abubakar Mohammed, 25; Salisu Usman, 20; and Ajayi Ojo, 32, be remanded in Agodi prison.

Amole-Ajimoti, who did not take the plea of the defendants, ordered the police to return the case file to the Oyo State Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP).
She, subsequently, adjourned the case until July 15, for mention.

The Prosecution Counsel, Insp. Sunday Ojeleye, told the court that the three defendants allegedly conspired to commit the offence on March 22, by 7 p.m. at Sabo area, Mokola, Ibadan.
Ojeleye alleged that the defendants assaulted Insp. Tirimisiyu Akinola, with dangerous weapons at Sabo, while on lawful duty in a dark spot in the area.

The deceased, he said, was a policeman attached to the Area Command, Iyaganku, Ibadan, and led a team of policemen to Sabo.
The prosecution said the offence contravened the provisions of Section 316 and punishable under Sections 319 and 324. (NAN)
