Police Arrests Man Who Helped Rescue 7 Kidnapped Victims Inside Creek by dre11(m): 4:27pm On Sep 28, 2017
CYRIACUS IZUEKWE


The residents of Igando, Lagos were shock after the police from Igando Division arrested a young man simply known as ‘Egbon’, who led the Vigilante group to the creek and exposed the kidnappers den which led to the rescue of seven victims.

The arrest and detention of Egbon (real name not yet known) had triggered negative reactions especially from those living in Akesan, Egan Igando and Badore areas who knew the role he played in unmasking the criminal hide out in the river line.

P.M.EXPRESS learnt that the police were not happy that Egbon took the vigilante group to the creek instead of the police where seven victims were recently rescued. The vigilante group also recovered some arms, handed them over to the police and the kidnappers were temporarily dislodged.

The police has turned now to allege that Egbon knew too much about the activities of the kidnappers and therefore must be among those who collect ransom for the kidnappers. When our correspondent visited Igando Police Division, the DPO was said not to be around but the suspect was still detained in the cell.

However, a police source confirmed that Egbon was arrested as a suspect. The source also said he will be transferred to the State Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS at Ikeja for interrogation. The Area Commander, Area M Idimu Command, ACP Austine Akika was contacted and he said he would contact the DPO to find out the facts and get back to the reporter but did not.

The VGN Lagos State Deputy Commander, Mr Adeye Santos confirmed the development and explained what happened. He said Egbon was one of the key informants the vigilante group was using to unmask the criminal hideouts mostly in the riverine areas because of his deep knowledge of the water ways.

He said in the last operation which led to the rescue of the seven victims, he was fully involved and even led the operation in the creek. He was therefore surprised when he was told that Egbon has been arrested and detained by the police as one of the kidnappers.

He wondered how he would be chasing the kidnappers and at the same time be among the kidnappers.

P.M.EXPRESS gathered that the residents have expressed their displeasure over the matter and described dealing with the police as dangerous despite the fact that they always claimed that ‘police is our friend’ and we should pass information to them.

I can never ever disclose a crime incident to police
They are very unprofessional

Have you seen police rewarding people for giving information?

My people stay off police they are terrorists

Simply because the police wants to take the Glory and besides maybe they know about the kidnappers

In saner climes, this 'egbon' lad is potentially a lead.

He is regarded as a witness and is even put in witness protection.

But look. Here he's even arrested. What's more? He's perhaps tortured too.

Now, if by any means he's let out, he might wind up deceased because his identify has been let out to the masters of those he's exposed.

Where's the rationale then?

The hunter has become the hunted.

Nigeria, my country.

Egbon is a suspect until proven innocent. He might have had a beef with the group and decided to expose 'em.

Why will anyone who notices any criminal activity want to report to the police anymore?

Just negodu!

I have seen where someone that found a misplaced phone, the owner called, he told her where to come pick it up (which was his office). When she came, she came with police n he was arrested for finding a lost phone. Can u imagine??

Am still trying to understand what is Egbon S fault even if police suspects fowl play they could has put an eye on him cos arresting him means that d kidnappers will go after him when released.

And what the community should do is to petition the commissioner of police so that Egbon S life will be saved

Nigeria police "a force of many comedy"

BIAFRANS: THE KURDISH REFERENDUM AND WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW.
.
Ordinarily, I had retired to un-analytical write-ups that send direct and obvious message to Buhari's handlers and his jihadists Nigeria Army. But the Kurdish referendum which no Nigerian Media is talking about due to the "bad market" the outcome of the event meant to them.
Because Biafrans deserved to know what actually played out in the just concluded Iraq Kurdish referendum, I decided to pen down this work. First and foremost, Kurdish people are people of inhuman treatment from where they are found in Middle Eastern States of Turkey, Syria, Iran and Iraq. Mostly in Iraq, they were dehumanised during the Saddam Husein era that they were victims of state sponsored terrorism as Biafrans are experiencing today in Nigeria. Iraq under Saddam Husein used chemical and biological weapons on the kurds. it was gory!
During the US invasion of Iraq in 2003, US and Israel found the Iraq Kurds as a better alliance to oust and destroy Saddam Husein who was an anti semantic. They Kurds used the opportunity to avenge their brethren bloods in the hands of "Sadman" and established a sophisticated regional army (pershmerg) that did well in the war against ISIL.
Having build up a strong military and region, they decided to seek an exit from the rest of Iraq. I want to say here that the Kurds have the highest oil resources Iraq survives with. When they initiated for the referendum, Turkey, Iran, Iraq and comatose Syria threatened hell on them if they dare conduct the referendum. Guess what! Israel told them to go ahead and conduct the referendum as she is there for them.
Today, it is done without any barking from the roaring lions. Those countries who threatened hell went to their shelve when it was obvious to them what Israel will do to them. Even the security council reservation over the referendum was swept under the carpet by Israel and Kurds. In life, what you need is a powerful friend and ally, believe you me, the sky is your stepping stone. Iran and Turkey could step down from their threat due to Israel's involvement, then what happens to Nigeria if Israel gets involve? She will just disappear!
I want to tell you in case you don't know, Israel is a trusted friend to Biafra. Shalom!

I think we should exercise caution in apportioning blame...let keep our arms folded until we can confirm the true position of things
But if the man was indeed proved to be innocent of the alleged crime I think we have to come down heavily on whoever is involved
