    You’re very right IG. And we appreciate that and have it recorded as a remarkable achievement of your tenor. It Reduced 85% of highway rubbery which is clear evidence that the Roadblock Police men are behind the rubbery and i think the need to be probed so they can answer query for the dead of those who lost the lives to highway rubbers couple of years back. IGP Please work on the area of Lagos state police red eyes on men with new or expensive cars and youths with laptops or phones on the street. They should stop embarrassing us and forcefully imposing on them of being a computer fraudster or otherwise. They should do their work and investigate any suspected person (s) than the insult and intimidation we receives from them everyday or is buying a Good car or carrying a laptop not legal in Nigeria anymore?????? I need answer oh.

    This Police men mounts at the front of all bank waiting for those who collected foreign currency, You can’t believe some of this police will be right inside the bank to pass information to those outside of exact amount someone collected and they will share that money into two with them weather they like it or not. Check front of Okota First bank, Ikotun first bank, All bank along idimu to Egbeda road, that Idimu police station is full of Criminals in the name of police both all Alimosho areas not to talk on ikeja. May God help us oh, fear of police in Nigeria is more deadly than the fear of criminals now..

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!”
