Court Dismisses Case against ​Police IG over Death of​ ​Armament Officer

Firearms used to illustrate the story

A Federal High court sitting in Kaduna has struck out a case brought before it by the family of the late Kaduna state police armament officer, Nanbol Audu, who died in police custody.

The presiding judge, Evelyn Anyandike, while delivering the judgment said her court lack​ed​ the authority to hear the matter and subsequently struck out the matter.

The Counsel to the Family, Edeoga Ogbu, said the battle to seek justice for the late police officer will continue as his family is filling another suit at the Kaduna ​State High Court as directed by the​ Federal High Court.

The Kaduna Police Commands Armament Officer, Mr. Audu, was arrested ​allegedly ​during an attempt to steal firearms from the Commands Armor. ​Police claimed ​he​ committed suicide in detention.

Mr. Audu and two others allegedly came to the Armory with two unknown persons in a private vehicle, parked behind the Armory and loaded some firearms into the vehicles.

The Police officers on guard suspecting a foul play immediately stopped the vehicle from leaving the premises.

“Upon interrogation, the State Armament Officer could not give satisfactory account of his action which led to his arrest and the two other occupants of the vehicle one Zingkur Joseph of Trade Centre Jos and Samuel Adamu Of Kuru Jos-South Local Government Area of Plateau
State, respectively.

“During search at the spot, 11 G3 Rifles already concealed under the vehicle seat were recovered,” the CP said.

Mr. Ambursa said further investigation revealed that one of the two civilian suspects is a blacksmith who specialize in manufacturing locally made firearms, while “the two suspects came from Jos, Plateau State on arrangement to purchase the said firearms from the Armament Officer at the cost of N400,000″.

The family of the deceased denied the allegation saying Mr. Audu was innocent and his killing was a plot to cover some atrocities.

    Those who know their past can always face the future with their chests high.

    That is not the case of Nigeria.

    I tried to separate and divide the differences, between your line of thinking and that of wole soyinka, it is harder for me to see any difference. He has said it boldly, religion will kill Nigeria, if it continue in the rate at which, politicians are propagating it.
    This has nothing to do with either or”muslims or christians”. When we mean Nigeria well, the truth must be told, soyinka just said it. Hate him or like him, that is the best shortest explanations of the problems facing and killing nigeria gently. We do not need UN to tell every grown adult, we all knew that. It is evident daily on our streets, in our houses, and above all, in all the fake churches and musques in Nigeria.
    We all carry fake Quran and Bible, to decieve and betray the poorest and weakest citizens in Nigeria. Even if you are blind and deaf, you can see and feel the harm done by religion in Nigeria everyday.
    Rapists go to church on sunday, on their way home, they rape a ten years old, a terrorists will pray on Friday morning and before they get home, they kill inocent people in the market Square.

    So sad, yet true history. it was Sartre, forwarding Fanon’s “Wretched of the Earth” who said that truth comes to us naked but we prefer it with clothes on. Kudos to the author for stripping the truth naked again.
