I Was Abducted, Not Arrested - Emmanuel Ihenacho by mukina2: 2:42pm On Sep 17, 2012
In a chat with The Guardian yesterday, Ihenacho said that on Thursday, September 13, 2012, the management of the company was shocked over the vicious invasion of their tank farm facility at Ibafon by a group of uniformed armed men, numbering about 30 and purporting themselves to be acting on the orders and instructions of the Director General of NIMASA and the Managing Director of a private company, GWVSL, Chief Government Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo.

In the course of the invasion, he stated that the intruders ransacked the entire tank farm complex, arresting and violently manhandling the workers at the complex, laying them flat on the floor and seizing their hand sets after which four members of staff of the company were abducted and taken to NIMASA for interrogation and have since been transferred to the SSS office at Shangisha where they are currently held in-communicado.

According to him, “On September 14, 2012, I was abducted and taken to NIMASA. This is because if you say I was arrested, there are some people who have duty and the power to arrest. But if you don’t have the duty and the power and you have some gun, you can abduct somebody.

“I was kept for several hours at NIMASA before the matter was subsequently transferred to the Lagos State Command of the State Security Service (SSS). In all of these, no formal notification as to the course of the attack on our tank farm or the siege on our businesses was ever made known to us.

“ I want the Federal Government and the national security establishment to quickly review the propriety of the unprecedented development of an armed unit within the NIMASA organisation. The armed unit at NIMASA could very well be said to be a private army, which is now being used for personal political purposes other than for Nigerian maritime capacity development.

“As at today (yesterday), the people that invaded our tank farm have actually taken over the place and have not vacated it, notwithstanding the fact that all the equipment, personal properties of people and other facilities cannot be accounted for now.

“We thought that if the Police or SSS, government agencies and others wanted to take over a place, they will do that with people who are working there to maintain the status quo.

I worked for NIMASA in 2009 in CALABAR However, I never knew they had the powers to arrest anybody.. Maybe the Nigerian Navy attached to NIMASA did the arrest.. Only the NAVY carries weapons within NIMASA..

Well we cant say he was ever arrested or been to jail. You Nigerian's have no proof here. tongue. I truly believe Nigerian Police abduct people for no reason. So if anyone gets "arrested" please say you were abducted. They will just come and say, "Oya, police station"

As far the arrest was not initially carried out by authorized agency no matter the offense the guy would be free from all charges. It’s just like people that use JTF to make arrest instead of going to police for complaint.

Don't worry, it's a gradual process. You'll get there one day. I'm just taming you for the future.

How can a democratic government send an ex-militant Chief Government Ekpemupolo, popularly known as Tompolo after a bona fide responsible citizen of Nigeria? Is Tompolo now in charge of the police and SSS?

GEJ thinks Emmanuel Ihenacho is James Ibori?

They have turned Nigeria into a banana republic?

Watched his interview on Channels tv this morning.Though dis man might not be a saint but this move by NIMASA looks like a witch hunt.

You're more than welcome to stay with Jonathan and boko haram, kidnapping and the endemic, systemic corruption as it exists now. Enjoy it!
