Insecurity: Buhari's aide asks police tough questions on slain officers

- Attacks on police stations and officers in Nigeria are, needless to mention, frightening

- Added to this, there is a growing worry that arrests of criminals involved in such a mindless act are slow

- Such was the feeling of Lauretta Onochie, a media aide to President Buhari on Saturday, May 15

By the calculation of Lauretta Onochie, a media aide to President Muhammadu Buhari, 27 police officers were killed by some unknown criminals seven months ago.

Onochie said in other countries like Congo and the United States where security agents were recently attacked, the assailants have been brought to book.

She recalled that in the instance of the African nation, not less than 30 persons have already been sentenced to death, while some persons suspected to have been involved in the US Capitol Hill invasion are now pleading guilty.

She is, therefore, wondering why no arrest has been made over Nigerian police personnel who were murdered back in late 2020.

In her tweet on Saturday, May 15, the presidential media aide asked:

"1. 30 Sentenced To Death Over Anti-Police Clashes In DR Congo
"2. Capitol riot: Prosecutors get first guilty plea 100 days after the attack.
"3. ME: Seven months on, where are those who killed our 27 Police Officers, roasted, and ate one?"

Meanwhile, unknown gunmen had struck once again, killing two police officers in Akwa Ibom state.

A female police officer also suffered injuries during the attack on a police facility at Ibiaku Ntok Okpo in Ikono local government area of the state on Saturday, May 1.

The chairman of Ikono council, Nyakno Okoibu, in a statement disclosed that the criminals set ablaze five vehicles parked at the station’s premises.

The statement which was released by the chairman’s media aide, Nsisong Ntuk, disclosed that the attack occurred at about 3 am on Saturday.
