  • Joy Odama: Our investigation thorough – Police
  • ABUJA— THE Police high command, yesterday,
    hinted that it had concluded investigation into
    the circumstances surrounding the death of Joy
    Odama,a 200 level student of the Cross River
    State University, allegedly in the hands of one
    Alhaji Usman Adamu.
    The Police which said the investigation was
    thorough in line with best standard, assured that
    it would not be swept under the carpet.
    The Police assurance came against the
    backdrop of allegation by the deceased family
    that it was intimidating star witnesses in the
    case to effect changes in their earlier written
    statements.
    Speaking in Abuja, following an alarm raised by
    the family weekend, Force Public Relations
    Officer, Jimoh Moshood, disagreed with the
    family.
    The family had in a statement, accused the
    police of threatening the principal witnesses in
    the alleged murder case to change statements
    earlier written upon report of the case to the
    security agency in December, when the student
    died.
    But speaking on the accusation, Mr Moshood, a
    Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP, said: “There
    is nothing like that. We didn’t threaten anybody
    and it is not good trying to cast aspersions on
    investigation. The investigation is thorough and
    the police will not sweep anything under the
    carpet. We are doing just investigation. You
    know the real autopsy report is out now and we
    are going to seek legal advice from the DPP and
    prosecute those who are culpable. Anybody
    involved in the matter, the police is not the
    judge, the court will determine and they
    shouldn’t before taking the matter to court begin
    to cast aspersions on police investigation. We
    are not threatening anybody.
    “Honestly, investigation is thorough and another
    round of autopsy have been concluded and the
    report have been submitted to the DPP.
    Anything that has to do with life is a thorough
    investigation we are carrying out and anybody
    found culpable will be definitely prosecuted.”
    Family’s allegation
    The late student’s family, weekend, accused the
    police of making attempts to have star witnesses
    in the alleged murder case have their earlier
    written statements changed.
    A statement on their behalf by Augustine
    Okechukwu, President, Basic Rights
    Enlightenment Foundation , BREF, said:”The
    police in her characteristic manner has covertly
    deployed another twist to pervert the cause of
    justice and a coercive deception in the
    mysterious death of the late Joy Odama. In a
    seeming bid to forestall the obvious truth
    surrounding this gruesome murder, the police
    high command has threatened the star
    witnesses, Martha Hassan and father, Victoria
    Ezekiel and father, plus Elizabeth, with arrest and
    subsequent detention if they fail to appear at
    Force Headquarters, Abuja, to give a fresh
    statement.
    “When the threats from the Investigation Police
    Officer (IPO), Force Monitoring Unit, became
    unbearable and unwholesome, Victoria and her
    father, Mr. Ezekiel, had to succumb to the
    pressure and reported at Force Headquarters
    where Victoria was detained for over eight hours
    because she refused to either alter her statement
    or write a fresh one. The police kept threatening
    her until she was made to sign a doctored
    statement from the police before bail was
    granted late in the night on Wednesday 21st
    June, 2017. It is noteworthy here that Victoria
    and her father were not even allowed to go
    through the statement before appending her
    signature
    “The Nigeria Police having failed in their futile
    attempts at the National Hospital to alter the re-
    conducted autopsy result is again engaging in
    all manner of clandestine tactics and outright
    manoeuvring to divert attention to kill the truth
    in this case.
    “We are calling on the Federal Government,
    Cross River State Government, National
    Assembly, Nigerian Bar Association, Federation
    of International Women Lawyers, Nigerian Union
    of Journalists, Civil Societies, human rights
    activists, religious bodies, clergies, public
    spirited individuals and the world at large to
    monitor the exercise.”
