… says suspect offered N400,000 to kill the case
Following a petition, police detectives have launched a manhunt for one Alhaji Usman Adamu accused of killing Joy Adama, a 200-level student of Cross River State University of Technology, on December 20, 2016.
It was gathered that the case was being investigated by the IG Intelligence Response Team which was said to be on the trail of the fleeing suspect.
She stated that Adamu then offered to settle the matter with N300,000 which she said infuriated her prompting her to brief a lawyer.
Philomena said, “The lawyer insisted that further investigation be carried out. The DPO again called for a second meeting where we met with Umoru Shehu; an assistant inspector general of police in charge of intelligence at force headquarters.
“Shehu told us bluntly also that investigation in this matter had been closed and could not be reopened. He asked Adamu to add an additional N100,000 to his initial offer but Adamu told us harshly that that was the best he could do and that it was his final decision.”
The FCT Police spokesman, Usen Omorodion, said on Sunday that the case had been transferred from the command to the IRT.
The Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, could not be reached for further update on the investigation.
