Police denies molesting professor
Edo State Police Command has described as false the report that his men molested Prof. Sunday Edeko of the Ambrose Alli University, Ekpoma.
The Commissioner of Police, Mr. Haliru Gwandu disclosed this to newsmen while reacting to the report at the weekend in Benin City.
Mr. Haliru said his men never molested the professor, noting that whoever placed such information online and in the press does so with the intention of dragging the name of the command in the mud.
Correspondent Gabriel Ordia had reported that on 17th March 2016, there was a distress call at Ekpoma and the DPO responded promptly to it and when he got there, he found out that two students were beheaded by an unknown cult group.
He said the DPO swung into action and arrested Joseph Omoke, Massy Aguebhinfe, Afegbunkun Fidelis and Stanley Aburekhanlen.
He added that after further investigation, six more suspects were arrested making a total of ten suspects and all charged and remanded in Ubiaja prison.
According to him, one of them, Dennis Agidi was sighted in a notorious joint at Ekpoma where he was holding a secret meeting with the intention of launching a similar attack in the institution.
While he was being taken away the suspect by the law enforcement agency, the said Prof. Sunday Edeko tried to stop the police from carrying out the arrest.
The professor, who later came to the police station to know why the suspect was arrested, apologized for his action of in a letter addressed to the commissioner of police.
He noted that the command is opened to anyone who feels aggrieved, as it will fail to give such justice.
