Inspector General of Police (IGP) Suleiman Abba Monday declared that the Federal Government had no hand in the attempt on the lives of former head of state, General Muhammadu Buhari and prominent Islamic Sheik, Dahiru Bauchi.
Speaking in his maiden meeting with all Assistant Inspector General’s Police (AIGs) and Commissioners of Police (CPs) at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, the IGP said findings from a high powered delegation of police officers sent to Kaduna by his predecessor found that the Federal Government had no hand in the bombings that targeted the two prominent Nigerians.
“They went to Kaduna, conducted a very diligent investigation; a team that was made up not only of General Duty detectives, but also Forensic Experts, visited the scene; visited some of the victims in the hospital and even those in the mortuary.”
“They conducted interviews with victims and witnesses, including the highly respected General Muhammadu Buhari, those that were with him when the incident happened and did a lot of other things that maybe we need not mention all of them here.
“So far, the findings do not indicate that the Federal Government is involved in either of the two incidents.”
He noted that the military had in their custody one suspect who was arrested at the scene of the second bombing, adding that the said suspect was previously arrested twice by police at a station close to the incident.
The IGP said he summoned the meeting so as to have “an eye ball to eye ball, heart to heart discussion and we won’t discuss anything other than the problems before us.”
“We can’t pretend, we cannot look aside, there are problems. When I say problems, I mean insecurity, problems of the safety of the people in this country and in particular in some parts of the country, vis a vis our responsibilities as police officers.”
Consequently, he said “We want to discuss what we need to do to improve what we have met? All my predecessors have tried their very best, but that does not mean that we should say that there are no issues needing urgent solutions.”
Emphasizing that the days of division within the Police is over, Abba promised that intelligence-led policing will be given more priority while attitudinal change to ensure proper work ethics will be instilled in all officers and men of the Force.
On Police preparedness for the upcoming Osun state Gubernatorial elections, IGP Abba gave reasons why officers on election duty were deployed well ahead of time saying, “It was an open secret that there was recruitment of thugs, there were people being armed, allegations anyway, so with that I felt telling officers to report three days before election commenced was not proper, so I changed it and said everybody should report by last Saturday.”
“We will be there enough to make sure that the integrity of the whole election is maintained and that’s what we will do,” he promised.
Disclosing that he was made the Chairman of the 2015 election security planning committee in the past dispensation, Abba said his committee came out with a 130 page report on modalities to ensure a hitch free election noting that the Osun State election under him will not pose any problems.

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.
