Police Officers Remove Uniform as Unknown Gunmen Attack Checkpoint Anambra



Pandemonium rocked the state following the attack which caused police officers to flee from their duty post..

According to Daily Post, some residents are feared to have been gunned down while others are reportedly injured.

It was gathered that the incident happened around 10.30 in the morning along the Ihiala-Uli axis in Ihiala LGA.

The publication reports that security operatives stationed at the checkpoint removed their uniforms and took cover in nearby bushes and available shelters.

The Onitsha- Owerri expressway had been abandoned.

The attack forced drivers and commuters to run for dear lives and commercial bus drivers have suspended operations along the route.

Still on police matters, a female officer identified as Olorunsogo Bamidele, recently cried out for justice after she was allegedly brutalised by a senior officer, ASP Ajayi Matthew.

She is an Inspector serving at the Osun State Police command, and attached to the Ode-Omu Divisional headquarters.

In a video making the rounds online, Inspector Bamidele showed cuts and bruises all over her body with her torn police uniform.

The policewoman, who is married, accused the Divisional Crime Officer of sexual harassment because she turned down his advances.

Amid tears in the video, the policewoman said he has been using his position to intimidate, blackmail and threatened to sack her if she refuses to accept his love advances.

Inspector Bamidele said; “He started beating me, to the extent that he naked me. Look at my chest, my hands, everywhere injured. Mr. Ajayi Mathew.”

When asked why the senior colleague assaulted her, she said, “I don’t know because he asked me out, that I should befriend him, I said no, I’m a married woman, I cannot befriend you. He started blackmailing me; saying he is the one befriending me, which is not true.

“My right hand was there. Two Constables and 10 civilians; after doing that, he went inside and carried a dane gun and said he wanted to gun me down. The civilians had to take me out of the office and said I should run away but I said no. If he wants to kill me, he should kill me. Help me. Assist me. Ajayi wants to kill me. Ode-Omu Division.”
