PRESS RELEASE

TRAGIC ATTACK ON OPERATIVES IN IMO: NPF COMMITTED TO INTER-AGENCY COOPERATION TO BRING CULPRITS TO BOOK

As IGP Orders Clampdown on Non-State Actors, Condoles with Families, Relatives of Deceased Officers

The Nigeria Police Force deeply mourns the recent attack on security operatives in Imo State, an event that has resulted in the tragic loss of precious lives of officers from various security agencies who have been dedicated to ensuring peace and protecting lives in Imo State.

This incident, which occurred on Tuesday 19th September, 2023, in Oriagu, Ehime Mbano Area of Imo State, serves as a stark and painful reminder of the daily risks and sacrifices that our security personnel willingly embrace in their unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety and security of our communities. The security agents affected by this senseless act of violence, comprising Police Officers, the Military, personnel of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC), and the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) were diligently responding to a distress call from the area which turned out to be fake, and targeted at luring them into the ambush.

The Inspector-General of Police, Ag. IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has however assured the public that the NPF is fully committed to collaborating closely with other relevant authorities to conduct a thorough and comprehensive investigation into this heinous act while relentlessly pursuing the cause of justice. He assures that the Force would redouble its efforts to bring the culprits to book and guarantee the safety of our officers and the security of our communities, while earnestly imploring the public to remain calm and vigilant. He further urged the public to extend their cooperation to law enforcement agencies in the collective pursuit of peace and order in Imo State and other parts of the country.

In the same vein, Ag. IGP Olukayode Egbetokun, equally extended thoughts and prayers to the families of the fallen heroes, pledging that the sacrifices made by their loved ones will not be in vain.

The NPF urges anyone who may possess information related to this incident to come forward and actively assist in the investigative process and/or send in information anonymously through the NPF Social Media handles @PoliceNG, or through mail at pressforabuja@police.gov.ng.

Meanwhile Simon Ekpa has continued to post about the attacks on security agents in the south-east. He posted this video showing his fighters in Okigwe. https://twitter.com/simon_ekpa/status/1703788215864332647

He has also been threatening Governor Hope Uzodinma and insulting the governor, President Tinubu and Igbos that do not support him. Chidi Odinkalu recently appeared on a Twitter Spaces debate with some of Ekpa's people and since then Ekpa has also been insulting him. But he has been very careful not to break the law and Twitter's rules.

However his supporters have not been so careful. They have been sharing Odinkalu's private information and threatening him. This account was taken down for threatening Chidi Odinkalu.

There is no need for too much talk, the man in Finland is responsible for this act of terrorism. This can serve as evidence against him. Nigerian government should collaborate with Finnish government to get Ekpa arrested.

Thats going to be difficult as no European country ever deports its own citizen to a country with bad human rights record such as Nigeria

The best anyone can do is to give the Finnish authorities concrete evidence that Simon Ekpa has done anything wrong. But if the evidence is just tweets and re-tweets, it will fall flat on its face as Simon Ekpa will only claim he was re-tweeting pictures and information that was already in the public domain

Tinubu must bring Ekpa back to Nigeria and drop him on the streets of Anambra Onitsha.. let’s igbos take it from there..

That’s the condition to support him..even though I’m already with him.. but giving us live Ekpa will make igbos and anambrains love him..

While is it difficult for Nigerian authorities to extradite Simon Ekpa back from Finland to answer for his crimes?

Is there something we don't know?

The best is to eliminate him, same way USA eliminated Osama and his second in command. It is a waste of resources to arrest that Ekperima.
Ekpa should be wasted and burnt, pour the ashes in the ocean.

I do not support all these senseless killings all over Nigeria let's not isolate it to Imo state, charity begins at home, let tinubu first arrest Asari dokubo, then all those Bandits brandishing ak47 arrest all of them before talking about Simon EKPA, what is the problem? Release MNK whom the court have set free and all will have peace,
