Escape of Kabiru Sokoto: Zakari Biu fired from Nigerian Police



The Police Service Commission on Wednesday announced the dismissal of Zakari Biu from the Nigerian police force. Biu, until Wednesday, was a commissioner of police in charge of criminal investigations in Abuja

The decision to dismiss Biu was linked to the  escape of  Kabiru Sokoto, the suspected christmas day Catholic church bomber from police custody. Kabiru Sokoto reportedly masterminded the bombing of St. Theresa Catholic Church, Madala, Niger State on December 25 2011 killing 42 people , he was recently captured in Taraba state.

The decision regarding Biu’s dismissal  was taken at the meeting of the PSC which was held in Abuja today.

A statement signed by Mr. Ferdinand U. Ekpe on behalf of the chairman of the commission, Mr. Parry Osayande, said the decision to dismiss Biu was as a result of his culpability in the escape of suspected Boko Haram terrorist Kabiru Umar.

    For God’s sake Zakari Biu deserves much more than expulsion from Nigeria police, he must be prosecuted! Dismissing somebody like this is like giving him ample opportunity to do more evil. The guy is a disgrace to Nigeria police and he should be made to face the music to serve as a lesson to people like him who are still at large.

    Dismissal of zakari biu is not enough justification as a punishment. He should received life in prison @least,to serve as a scapegoat & new era. Well never the less,there is still sign of seriousness in the part of PSC& the Govt. I hope the present IGP will adopt a new strategy to make police more civil in their calls to served humanity&not humiliate then.

    The problem of Nigerians is dat everything will still bounce back at corruption. What is dismissal to such an enemy of the country? That is why corruption and criminal activities rises in Nigeria day and night. Any country who excluded prosecution, sanction and execution in their administrative system to those whom they considered as important people but in the other hands, are the enemies of progress. How can such country survive? Immediately after dismissal from the police force, thorough interrogations has to follow. From there we culd have more clues on the people who are the brains behind all these menace. Which afterwards, execution shuld be the next line of action. But even the PSC and Govt on their own are highly corrupt. They wine and dinne together. When we see a transparent govt officials, we will know. 4 now, we are still in the era of stealing, corruption and covering the secrets that will help the nation. Imagine when a corrupt politician says he is fighting corruption. And imagine when a criminal says he is fighting crimes.

The deceased’s younger brother, Daniel has come out to clear the air regarding the circumstances leading to his death.

Daniel revealed his brother was stabbed on the neck by thugs who infiltrated and ransacked their home.

In his words;

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
