Police Arrests 14 Suspects Connected With Siege On Justice Odili’s Home


The Nigeria police high command has arrested 14 suspects who allegedly raided the home of Supreme court judge, Justice Odili, on October 29.

The suspects consist of syndicates drawn from police, military, journalism and the legal profession.

The suspects include a fake Chief Superintendent of Police, Lawrence Ajodo, one Stanley Nkwazeme who is a journalist with one of the national dailies, and an Islamic scholar.

Police spokesman Frank Mba paraded the suspects in Abuja on Thursday, November 11, and explained that their arrest followed a swift investigation by the police.

He said seven of the suspects, including two soldiers, are at large.

He vowed that all suspects at large would be apprehended.

Mba noted that the leader of the illegal operation is a fake Chief Superintendent of police.

He said the criminals are loose canons and document forgers who were on their own and not hired by any personnel of the ministry of justice.
