Nigeria Bar Association (NBA), Onueke Branch, has Petitioned Ebonyi State Police Commissioner, CP Aliyu Garba, over alleged gruesome murder of Mrs. Amechi Gloria Enyi, wife of Barr. Amechi Shedrack Enyi.
The petition dated November 26, 2021, signed by Barr. Ikechukwu Njoku, (Bar Leader) and Uche Igba, (Branch Chairman) among others accused the Divisional Police Officer, Central Police Station, Abakaliki and the Investigation Officer, of conspiring to murder Barr. Shedrack’s wife.
The NBA Onueke Branch said that reason for the murder can be deduced from the acts of threats coming from a police officer, wife and the manner in which she was lured out of his house for the plans to be executed.
The leadership of the Onueke branch of NBA said that trouble started when on the 22nd of November 2021, Barr. Shedrack Enyi’s wife, Mrs. Amechi Gloria, was brutally stabbed to death in her residence at No. 1 Enyi Close Nkaliki while her husband was being unlawfully detained at the Central Police Station Abakaliki.
The group alleged that unlawfully detention was on the orders of the Divisional Police Officer, CSP. Ikechukwu Okoro with the conspiracy of the Investigation Police Officer, Geoffrey Aghachi , and one Inspector, Emmanuel Lawrence and his wife.
The petition said that Mrs. Lawrence converted part of her rented apartment to mini poultry house, an act which constituted unbearable nuisance against other tenants in the premises.
“Acting on the persistent complaint raised against the said nuisance, Barr. Enyi who manages the property appealed to her to dismantle the poultry house made of wood and cease further rearing of the chicken in the premises.”
“Mrs. Lawrence flagrantly refused to yield to the entreaties made by Barr. Enyi which prompted him with the assistance of the caretaker of the premises and other tenants to remove the poultry wooden house”.
They alleged that Mr. Lawrence and wife started unleashing threat against the Barr. Shedrack who was later arrested and detained at CPS, following complaint made at the police station by Mr. Lawrence and wife.
NBA expressed the regret that Barr. Enyi was later granted bail and was subsequently rearrested after he called for the transfer of the case to the police headquarters.
“Our colleague again was thrown into cell on the orders of the said DPO of Central Police Station on Saturday 20th November 2021 and remained incarcerated till Monday morning, 22nd November 2021,” the NBA said in the petition.
The group further stated the deceased who was full of life before she was wickedly and brutally murdered.
