The Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has ordered thorough investigations into the circumstances surrounding the attack and assault on the President of the National Labour Congress (NLC), Comrade Joe Ajaero, by personnel of the Nigeria Police Force and hoodlums in Owerri, Imo State last week.

Ajaero has been hospitalised since he was attacked and brutalised while a controversy has trailed the incident with the NLC shutting down critical services in Imo State and also threatening a nationwide shutdown.


In a statement issued on Friday, the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that the IGP directed the Deputy Inspector General (DIG) in charge of the Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) to take over the matter “with the primary objective of ascertaining the true facts surrounding the incident and to address any ambiguities that may exist as the Police has been inundated with different versions of the incident making investigations imperative to clear the conflicting accounts.”

The force spokesperson stated that “The Nigeria Police Force understands the importance of transparency and accountability in maintaining public trust.

“The IGP therefore assures the public, most especially the leadership of the organised labour, that a thorough and unbiased inquiry will be conducted to provide clarifications while urging organised labour and the public to remain calm, as he has personally intervened to address the issues surrounding this incident.

“The investigation has commenced, and the Nigeria Police Force guarantees that it will be followed to a conclusive end while appropriate actions will be taken based on the findings of the investigation.”
