Soldiers Insist On Searching Tambuwal’s Car As Other VIPs Go Unsearched In Kaduna

Published

on

Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal was yesterday subjected to an unnecessary search by armed men who insisted his convoy must be ransacked in Kaduna.

Irked by the conduct of the men of the Nigerian Army, Tambuwal came out of the car and trekked the short distance into the venue, an incident sources say occured at about 200 metres away from the hotel where an international conference on security and development challenges of Pastoralism in West and Central Africa, organised by the Office of the National Security Adviser held.

The speaker, who arrived the venue of the gathering at exactly 9.16 am for the 10.00 am opening ceremony, had his convoy stopped by soldiers who insisted they must search his official car before he could be allowed into the venue.

It was gathered by Vanguard that despite the plea by security details attached to the speaker, the soldiers refused to yield, claiming they had “orders from above” to search him.

What made the search ugly and suspicious however, was the fact that other VIPs, especially governors, who attended the conference, were allowed access into the hotel without hindrance.

In his reaction, Tambuwal’s spokesman, Malam Imam Imam decried the conduct of the soldiers, saying their attitude undermined the institution of the legislature.

“It is not about the person of the speaker, but the office he is occupying. What we expect is for the security agents to show respect for the office of the Number 4 citizen of the country,” he said.

The soldiers eventually did not search the speaker’s car after he walked into the venue.

    This is sensational publication. Every vehicle coming into the premises was searched. Because of the delay caused by the queuing cars, the speaker had to walk to the venue of the event. His vehicle was not even searched. The speaker showed his usual humility by walking to the venue less than 100 metres. Am disappointed by your sensationalism over this issue. Your online publication should be concise and truthful not politicising every issue. If you stand for the later, please delete my email from your list.

    Its not good to do such a thing to no 4 citizens in the country it looks suspicious. But the comment of the 1st response is even contradict the story. But what I know is that only God knows the truth. But we are all Nigerian irrespect of the ethnics, religions or party. Gods eyes are on us.

I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

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!”
