#EndSARS: Aftermath taking toll on police as many want to resign

The aftermath of #EndSARS protests is taking its toll on the police as many officers would prefer to tender their resignation letters.
Already it was gathered that resignation letters from hundreds of officers in the aftermath of the #EndSARS protests have allegedly been rejected by the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
For many of the officers the police hierarchy may be doing more damage to the force as no amount of persuasion can assuage their disenchantments.
Their morale is low having been dehumanised as many lost their lives.
IGP Adamu had vowed to arrest perpetrators in Lagos with a view to restoring pride of the force.
According to him, 1,590 suspects have been arrested nationwide for arson and looting.
The IGP spoke when he addressed hundreds of personnel of Lagos State Police Command in GRA, Ikeja recently.
The police boss even acknowledged the fact that the morale of officers had dampened in the light of the violence.
Adamu said the scale of destruction witnessed during the event called for adoption of standard protocols for public protests.

He had urged them not to be deterred by action of the hoodlums in the discharge of their duties.
Adamu implored the cops to resume work with open minds.

Lagos was epicentre of the #EndSARS protest which later degenerated into violence that claimed numerous private and public assets.
Six officers were lynched, 36 critically injured and 46 police stations burnt in the nation’s economic capital.

Bail jumping Maina nabbed in Niger Republic

The former Chairman of the defunct Pension Task Team, Abdulrasheed Maina, who jumped bail and fled Nigeria has been nabbed by Security agents.
.
Maina was apprehended by operatives of Niger Republic intelligence service in a collaboration with Nigerian anti-corruption agency on Monday evening.
Nigeria’s Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) is prosecuting Maina for alleged money laundering to the tune of N2billion.
Maina is facing a 12-count money laundering charge levelled against him and a firm by the EFCC.

EFCC alleged that Maina, as Chairman of the defunct Pension Reform Task Team, used the account of the firm for money laundering to the tune of about N2 billion, part of which he used to acquire landed properties in Abuja.
He, however, has not been attending trial since the September 29, 2020 proceedings, a development that prompted Justice Okon Abang of the Federal High Court to order the detention of Senator Ali Ndume last Monday.
But the Federal High Court in Abuja on Friday granted bail to the Borno South Senator over his suretyship for Maina believed to have jumped bail.

PDP says killing of 43 farmers is devilish, wicked

The gruesome beheading of 43 innocent farmers by insurgents in Zabarmari, Borno state is extremely wicked, devilish and must not be left unaddressed the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has said.

The party indicated that the horrific killing of compatriots comes as yet another of the recurring horrid testament and badge of failure of the President Muhammadu Buhari-led APC administration to secure the nation and guarantee the safety of lives and property in the country.
The party in a statement by its National Publicity Secretary, Mr. Kola Ologbondiyan, said that the PDP is indeed is distressed by the escalated killing and maiming of innocent Nigerians by insurgents, bandits and marauders, who have continued to ravage and pillage communities, while the lazy and lethargic Buhari administration continues with its lip service, rhetoric and false performance claims.

The PDP also said that it is particularly disturbed because of the failure of the Buhari Presidency to take decisive action despite series of concerns raised by the Borno State governor, Prof. Baba Gana Zulum, of security compromises in the state.
It said that the Buhari administration appears helpless while the national security structure under him seems to have collapsed. “Our nation appears to be on auto pilot with no one in charge while the ship of state continues to drift.”
The PDP further said; “All our nation gets from the Buhari Presidency is that ‘Mr. President is shocked’, ‘Mr. President is saddened’, ‘Mr. President regrets’ and such lame responses without any decisive policy direction or directive to definitively tackle the situation at hand, leading to escalation of killings in our country.

“Such attitude by the Buhari administration has continued to embolden insurgents to the extent that they now attack military formations, convoys of state governors and engage in wanton beheading of our compatriots.”
“It is distressing that despite this sorry situation, Mr. President, who promised to lead from the front, has receded into the safety of Aso Presidential villa and refused to act on the consistent demands of Nigerians to rejig the national security architecture and replace the service chiefs with more capable hands to affectively tackle our security challenges”.
The PDP therefore charged President Buhari to stop his unhelpful rhetoric but should sit up and take actions that will safeguard the lives of Nigerians who have been subjected to all manners of mental and physical torture under “this incompetent” administration.
It further said; “Mr. President should immediately move to Zabarmari in Borno state, empathize with the families of the victims and lead from the front in restoring security in the area”.
The PDP commiserated with the government and people of Borno State and urge Nigerians to remain at alert particularly in providing useful information for the security agencies in this fight against insurgency in the land.
