The Nigeria Police has said there is no cover-up in the investigation of the invasion of the house of the Deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu.
Force PRO, Jimoh Moshood, in a statement last night, said “there was no any cover-up by the Police in the investigation of the crime that occurred in the residence of the Deputy Senate President. “The four Police personnel and one personnel of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps on duty at the residence of the Deputy Senate President at the time of the incidence have been arrested and are still in detention and being investigated for negligent acts and dereliction of duty.
It is also not correct that Police responded after seven hours, the residence of the Deputy Senate President share fence with the APO Legislative quarters Police post.
“The Nigeria Police Force calls for patience and understanding from the Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu and the Senate of Federal Republic of Nigeria to allow the Police to carry out a thorough and discreet investigation into the incident and ensure that the perpetrators are brought to justice.”
He also disclosed that the Inspector General of Police has directed the upgrade of the APO Legislative quarters Police post which was hitherto under the control of National Assembly Division to a Divisional Police Headquarters to be manned by a Divisional Police Officer (DPO).
Other Divisions created by the Inspector General of Police include, a Divisional Police Headquarters for the Supreme Court, Divisional Police Headquarters at Kabusa, Divisional Police Headquarters at Galadimawa, Divisional Police Headquarters at Trademore Estate.
Moshood further stated this is done to reduce crime and criminalities in the affected areas and improve Police visibility in the Federal capital Territory.
