LATE OLAITAN OYERINDE MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD BY SUSPECTED ASSASSINS

LATE OLAITAN OYERINDE MURDERED IN COLD BLOOD BY SUSPECTED ASSASSINS

Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, the executive governor of Edo state, has laid the blame for the assassination of his Special Adviser and Personal Secreatry, Mr. Olaitan Oyerinde, squarely at the doorstep of the Nigeria Police.Oshiomhole made this allegation on Thursday in Abuja while speaking at the launching of the new code of conduct for the Nigerian police. The petite governor supported his allegation with the explanation that both the assassin and the weapon used to murder the late Oyerinde were in police custody as at the time the heinpus crime was committed.

He said, “The man, who was involved in the murder according to the record of the police including the entry made by a DPO (Divisional Police Officer) in a police station, was already under police detention at the time my private secretary was murdered.

“The weapon that was used for the murder was used for armed robbery earlier, recovered by the police and under police custody at the time my secretary was murdered.

“So, the man who murdered my secretary was in police custody; the gun he used was in police custody and this is the findings of the police. The only conclusion that can be reached is that the police ordered the killing of my private secretary.”

The former aide to the comrade governor, who was shot and killed in front of his wife and children at his residence in Benin City by suspected assassins, was close to Mr Oshiomole during his days as a labour leader. And it was not unsurprising that the governor was almost overwhelmed with emotions as he called for the investigation of the Deputy Inspector General of police in charge of criminal investigation and possible dismissal if he is found culpable in the death of late Oyerinde.

Nigeria Ranks Third On Global Terrorism Index Despite Drop In Deaths – Report

Boko Haram

Nigeria has been ranked as the third most terrorized country in the world according to a 2020 report by the Global Terrorism Index (GTI).

The report which was released on Wednesday, ranked Nigeria third only behind war-torn countries of Afghanistan and Iraq.

According to the GTI report, Nigeria witnessed an increase in Boko Haram attacks in the period under review, witnessing her worst terrorist attack in 2019 in northeastern Borno State, where at least 70 people were killed and 10 others wounded when insurgents attacked at a funeral.

“Over the past year, Boko Haram increased attacks on military targets, with deaths rising from 26 in 2018 to 148 in 2019,” the report said.

However, the report recognized that terror-related incidents in the country fell by 27% in the same period due to a significant reduction in violence attributed to killer herdsmen.

“This reduction occurred despite a small increase in deaths attributed to Boko Haram, which has been the most active terrorist group in the country over the past decade. Deaths from terrorism in Nigeria are now 83 percent lower than at
their peak in 2014.”
