Deputy Senate President, Senator Ike Ekweremadu, on Wednesday vowed to release video footages of how his house was invaded by alleged assassins on Tuesday, a SaharaReporters report has shown.
After the plenary on Wednesday, the Senate resolved to ask the Police to conduct a deep investigation of the alleged assassination attempt on Ekweremadu, his wife and son in the early hours of Tuesday.
“The Police adopted a very myopic, porous and intellectually stagnant approach to a very serious matter. To start with, burglary is not mere. Anyone who is engaged in burglary has satanic intention. It is burglary that leads to assassination,” Melaye said.
“To come out and say its mere burglary shows that the Nigeria Police has identified some individuals that no matter what happen, we will not get their service. If this has happened to one of the faithful of Mr President, this will not be the reaction of the Inspector-General of Police. If this has happened to one of the close friends of the villa, this will not be the reaction of the IGP.”
“I showed them round and although they were very sympathetic of what happened,” he said.
“They looked at the CCTV tapes operated by the DSS and a staff of my house; apparently, they were not able to figure it out, so it was easy for them to quickly dismiss what really happened.”
“Unfortunately for them, later yesterday evening a technician came and was able to figure out and was able to produce the CCTV footage, including how they gained entrance into my house and how they got a way into my room and the fight between them, my wife and my son and all the efforts we made to save our lives. I am happy that we have that in our custody, which the Police are not aware of.
Ekweremadu continued: “It appears to me that the man who said it was a mere case of burglary does not know what burglary is about. He doesn’t need any teaching; he just needs to go into the Internet and find out what burglary is really about. He can compare if it is the same with what happened in my house.”
“For the Police to quickly, without interviewing the very person for whom this incident happened to, come out and determine that it was a burglary, actually burgles the mind,” he said.
