Hakeem Odumosu, the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has led the police command to express sympathies to the families of two inspectors allegedly killed by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The victims who were identified as Inspector Rufai Adamu and Inspector Akubo Emmanuel were killed on November 25, 2021, in Anambra State and their mutilated bodies circulated online.
“Inspr Rufai Adamu and Inspr Akubo Emmanuel, until their death, displayed a high standard of discipline, humility, great commitment and unparallel dedication to duty, which distinguished them among their colleagues.
“These admirable attributes characterised their career in the force and will remain indelible in our memory,” a condolence letter delivered on Wednesday to the families stated.
Despite IPOB’s continued accusations of mindless killings in Nigeria, especially in the southeast, the group dissociated its members as well as the Eastern Security Network (ESN) from the heinous act of beheading the two policemen.
The group insists it is a non-violent movement since its inception and accused the Department of State Services (DSS) of trying to frame them.
