On Tuesday, the Nigeria Police Force arraigned a 50-year-old man, Ahmed Echodo, for allegedly misleading the police to conduct a raid at a building belonging to the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, on Friday. According to the one-count charge, two defendants were accused of the offense, although only Mr. Echodo was arraigned at a magistrate court in Abuja.
Recall that we at Ifeanyicy.com brought you news last week how security operatives had ransacked Mr. Ekweremadu’s building on Friday
morning following information accusing the occupants of criminal
offenses. They found nothing incriminating during the search. According to the charge, the men, Mr. Echodo and Maiwada Adamu, are
accused of conspiring to falsely inform the office of the IGP that the
building, occupied by Oliver Ogenyi, is being maintained and used for
criminal activities including storage of arms and ammunition.
