IGP orders probe into invasion of Odili’s residence

From Molly Kilete, Abuja

The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has ordered a detailed investigation into the reported invasion of Justice Mary Odili’s residence in Abuja last Friday.

The IGP, who described the violation as ‘unfortunate and unacceptable’, said the ‘leadership of the Force is not aware and did not at any time order Police operatives to carry out such assignment.’

He directed the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) to strengthen the security around the street and residence of Justice Mary Odili to ensure her safety and also to prevent a reoccurrence of the unfortunate incident.

Odili’s residence was reportedly invaded by officials from the Federal Ministry of Justice and operatives from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC). But the two organisations have since denied their involvement in the illegal action, which has drawn criticism from the public.

The IGP, in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, said those found to have taken part in the operation would be made to face the wrath of the law.
