Messy Divorce: Policemen Are Feeding Fat On A Couple's Divorce by dre11(m): 11:00pm On Aug 09
By Juliana Francis 



A love story which started in Nigeria between two lovers, leading to marriage, has degenerated into divorce, power play, blackmail, accusations and counter-accusations.

Caught in the middle of this drama are the Metropolitan and Nigerian police. While the Metropolitan police are presently looking at the merit of extraditing the man identified as Bankole, their Nigerian counterparts are lining their pockets.

It was learnt that the Nigerian policemen, who are investigating the marital issue, have allegedly been extorting the estranged couple, Bankole and his former wife, Eileen.

While the policemen allegedly collected money from the woman to ensure that her former lover was extradited from UK, the policemen turned to Bankole, demanding money to stop his extradition.

The policemen, who are pulling these strings, are attached to the Police Interpol Section, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

The Force Public Relations Officer (FPPRO), a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), Frank Mba, while expressing anger over the policemen shenanigans, said that he had received complaint from Bankole on the issue and vowed to fish out the policemen.

Mba, while elaborating on supposed extradition documents sent to UK Police, said: “If there is a serious crime, the security of a country will have to collaborate with the other country in the operation process, that is, after the two countries have investigated and come to agreement. Extradition does not involve case of husband and wife, except it has to do with murder, fraud. Whatever is the crime must be investigated by both countries and come to an agreement.”

This is not the first time some Nigerian policemen have been dragged into the drama between Bankole and his wife.  The drama with different policemen started almost three years ago, where they illegally arrested Bankole’s former lover, Mercy, who had a daughter for him.

Mercy resides in Ondo State, but policemen from Alagbo, Lagos State, broke all protocols including jurisdiction laws, failed to follow procedure and went to arrest Mercy.

The matter between Bankole and Eileen has been taken to different courts, at different occasions, and at each occasion, it has been struck off as lacking merit. One of the accusations earlier levelled against Mercy was impersonation.

Mercy was locked up in police cell at Alagbon for days until she fell sick and desperately needed medical attention. The policemen, who were alleged to be acting on instructions of Bankole’s former wife, refused to grant Mercy bail, even though she didn’t know her offence.

She was eventually bailed after a concerned police officer, worried by her depreciating health, secretly gave her a phone to contact a journalist.

In another power play, Bankole’s former wife reported him to Metropolitan Police that he carried out genital mutilation on his Nigerian-born daughter, whom he had with Mercy.

Mercy has since remarried and has other children. The matter was also looked into. The latest drama right now is the extradition.

According to suit No: FHC/ABJ/CS/1415/18 at the Federal High Court in the Abuja Division, between Bankole Oni Ogunnowo and the Attorney-General of the Federation and Inspector-General of Police, “The nominal complainant is the estranged wife of the plaintiff in this present suit. She is a Briton of Nigerian extraction, who was born and raised in the United Kingdom and only comes to Nigeria for visits, while the plaintiff is a Nigerian and has lived in the United Kingdom since 2012.

“The plaintiff and the complainant, Mrs. Eileen Adetokumbo Ogunowo, got married at the Ikeja Marriage Registry, Lagos on the 18th day of February, 2012. Subsequently, the plaintiff at the invitation of the complainant, moved over to join her in the United Kingdom. The couple was living in peace and the plaintiff eventually started working. Trouble, however, started when the complainant and her mother, who also is in the United Kingdom, requested that the plaintiff’s employer pay his salary into the complainant’s mother’s account and that they in turn will pay him a commission since they were the ones housing him.

The suit further stated: “This was a request the Plaintiff did not agree to. This led to serious and constant matrimonial difference between the plaintiff on the one hand and the complainant and her mother on the other hand for one year and four months that the couple stayed together. The plaintiff was eventually removed from the complainant’s apartment by the United Kingdom authorities for his own safety due to the constant harassment and domestic violence meted out to him by the complainant. He has been on a protective watch list by the United Kingdom Police against any attempted violence on by the complainant.”

Although Eileen and Bankole have a child together, they apparently didn’t have a smooth divorce and some ghosts have refused to remain buried.

Bankole, however, has moved on; he has remarried and had children with another woman in the UK.

He is, however, not having a settled marriage as some Nigerian policemen keep sending myriad of documents filled with one allegation after another. The present document facing him now is that of extradition over alleged marriage fraud.

Some lawyers and policemen, while speaking on when to invoke extradition on a citizen, said that it must be a serious case like murder, fraud, forgery and others, not marriage dispute. The police and the lawyers stated these while reacting to the attempts by policemen to extradite Bankole.

An Assistant Inspector-General of police (AIG), Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) Alagbon-Ikoyi in Lagos, Mr. Murtala Mani, said that whatever that could warrant extradition of a person must be a serious crime.

Mani said that in Nigeria, the bilateral relationship with some countries of the world determined how possible to carry out an extradition of her citizens, through the embassies in those countries.

He said: “If there is any crime that warrants extradition, the embassy looks into it with the host country and by agreement, workout the extradition operation. The embassy will be involved, that is one of their duties. It depends on the crime, before the Nigeria government can seek extradition of person such as murder, forgery, fraud. It is sometimes difficult to extradite a person from another country depending on the agreement of both countries.

“However, the Nigerian government or security agencies cannot extradite anyone on personal matters or family case. Your crime must be against the country of resident and your home country.”

A Lagos-based constitutional lawyer, Mr Spurgeon Ataen, said: “Murder, manslaughter, attempted murder, drug offences, trafficking in humans are extraditable offences because they are crimes in both countries, that is to say the country seeking extradition and the country the offender escaped to after committing the offence. Nigeria has extradition treaty with several countries of the world. Therefore, it is only with those countries she can either extradite or seek extradition. This may be a way to check the rampancy of such crimes or stop recidivism in respect of such crime. However, my opinion is that all indictable offences should be extraditable except crimes orchestrated by the state for purposes of witch-hunting and silencing legitimate opposition.”

I have an uncle in Abeokuta who got involved in a land dispute and he suffered EXACTLY this same sort of thing with the Nigerian police.

A cousin of the man who was fighting over land with my uncle collapsed and died outside his home. Autopsy showed that the man suffered a stroke. My uncle was then charged with murder even though he was in Abuja at the time, and the dead man died in Abeokuta.

The police took a bribe to hide the autopsy report and they threatened the doctor who prepared it that they would charge him with conspiracy if he protests.

They arrested my uncle even though he provided them with very clear evidence that he was attending a conference in Abuja when the alleged murder happened. They only released him after he paid 500k "bail money"

Meanwhile they went behind his back and extorted another 300k from the family of the dead man and claimed they were using it for CSI (Crime Scene Investigation)

The Nigerian police is a criminal enterprise itself.

That butchering they received at the hands of the Army in Taraba was karma at work, although I still believe the army has a lot of questions to answer.

There are two categories of thieves and criminals in Nigeria. The criminals outside government and the criminals inside government. The Nigerian Police is the criminal department of the federal government.

Very painful to note the loss of policemen in Taraba to gunshots from the army. But truthfully there is nothing to regret when talking about the foolishness, greed and wickedness of some police personnel. Nowadays the police pays very good salaries to their personal. The crooks among them keep their salaries in the bank as their savings. Their uniforms have become their shops or business centers which they use to engage in buying and selling for daily living. Policemen will collect monies from transporters and give them change in return. Shamelessly they collect 50/100 naira saying “little drops of water make the mighty ocean”. At the traffics and check points they keep touts who collect bribes on their behalf to avoid the IGP special squad. Even the members of the so called “peace coups” around me now demand bribes from keke marwa riders. Who do Nigerian police this thing sef?

My elder brother was Kidnapped while entering his house in Port Harcourt, He manage to escape from the moving vehicle along the road in a crowded area and rolled to the gutter, Meanwhile as he was jumping from the vehicle they shot at him but the bullet missed and he the back of one of the gang members who was trying hard to prevent him from jumping off the vehicle. Now, these criminals decided to go sell the vehicle at Onitcha when during a routine check the police miraculously found blood in the vehicle and later discovered it was a stolen car and apprehended them the very next day after the incidence. Meanwhile my brother had made entry at the police station close by about the attempted kidnap and car jacking. When my brother was contacted about the recovered car he had to pay over 200k to get back the vehicle and also charge the two criminals they caught to court. One of the boys they caught was staying just opposite our family house and he is the only son of an oil worker who went to zone 6 Calabar to turn the case upside down. Police came all the way from Calabar to arrest my brother who miraculously escaped kidnap. We had to petition the IG through a senior advocate of Nigeria but yet the DPP refused to charge the case. As I speak to you those boys are walking free after police extorted my brother. The police is more corrupt than even NNPC or all organizations put together. I feel very sorry for Nigeria.

9.5 times out if 10, you will part with money if you have any dealings with the NPF. Whether as a criminal, suspect, witness or even victim. They are worse than AIDS.

As we speak, there are tens of thousands of Nigerians in a police cell this morning for no other reason than they were going about their legitimate businesses. If you have never been a victim of NPF extortion, just thank your stars.

I remember when I still dey stay for Mafoluku, the periods following a robbery incident were regarded as dangerous as the robbery itself. Because when police land with their van; you go buy coke down the road, enter. You dey go work, enter. You come greet your babe, enter. You tie towel carry bucket dey go fetch water, rubbish, enter.

The Nigerians society is corrupt from top to bottom.

The Nigeria Police Farce!

Profiting from others' misery is historically in their DNA so it's not hard to believe this.

Now I've had my fair share of NPF trouble, but they're nowhere near some of the horrible experiences some people have been sharing in the comments, so I sympathize!

Unfortunately, the NPF is just another reflection of Nigerian society.
