The Nigeria Police Force has launched investigation into reported allegations bordering on extra-judicial killings, extortion, and other crimes leveled against some of its officers at Zone 13 Command, Anambra State.
Reports trending in different social media platforms especially on Instagram and Twitter alleged that CSP Patrick Agbazue, officer-in-charge of the Rapid Response Squad (RRS), Anambra State Command; SP Nwode Nkeiruka, the Police Public Relations Officer of the Zone 13 Headquarters, Ukpo-Dunukofia; and Inspector Harrison Akama attached to the RRS; were responsible for series of extra-judicial killings, high handedness, extortion, among others in Anambra State.
According to the post trending on Instagram, “SP Princess Nkeiruka Nwode, a former Police Public Relation Officer (PPRO) Zone is married to a junior inspector of police, Officer Harrison Akama, as against police work ethics as clearly stipulated in the Police Act.
“She started an affair with one Inspector Harrison Akama serving in Awkuzu SARS sometime last year in order to solidify her relationship with SARS so as to continue all her illegalities. The said Inspector Harrison Akama is the hit man of CSP Patrick Agbazue who is responsible for most of the extra-judicial killings in Anambra State.”
“SP Princess Nwode secretly married Inspector Harrison Akama in December against police regulations. An SPO (Senior Police Officer) can NEVER marry a rank and file (i.e from constable to Inspector rank) it amounts to instant dismissal, when she saw that she has gained entrance to Patrick through Harrison, she got Harrison Two brand new mikano trucks, White and black. Harrison has since moved into Princess house and they go about bragging that they are untouchable, that’s how they come together to form a squad, once they get a Victim, they work hand in hand to make sure they achieve their illegal aim. Princess who is the woman among them is used as their traps most times they invade rich people houses , kidnap them and start calling their family for ransom. One thing is sure, it’s only 1 percent of their victims that come out alive by the grace of God, the remaining 99 percent are missing forever, even the 1 perc (sic).”
The Instagram blogger earlier posted on Thursday morning: “Hello tueh tueh, meet CSP Patrick of Road 25, Ngozika Estate Awka, Anambra. He is the SARS COMMANDER in ANAMBRA, He is behind most of the kidnap cases, extortion and organ harvesting in ANAMBRA.”
“As I am about to take you through a journey of this evil boy’s atrocities, the only help I need from y’all is to tag NIGERIA POLICE FORCE massively, we do not know his next target in Anamabra.”
“There are people that were arrested and never came back. They were all killed by CSP Patrick Agbazue and Inspector Harrison Akama who is Patrick’s hit-man now Married to SPO Princess, (sic) Which is totally against the ethics of their job, @nigeriapoliceforce should look into it, They all came together to from a deadly squad and I will give details of how they operate below.”
“Once Patrick and his team are sets you up during their parades, there is a possibility that you are not going home alive. it’s in two categories, it’s either he kills you for having enough money in your account and taking your vehicle and transferring all your money to a certain account or he kills you for not having any money at all, you see those two categories are the categories a lot of people fall in, he has one popular habit, he has a room he takes his victims to, torture them and write a note for them, he will make them confess to a crime they didn’t commit before he and Harrison Akama kills and harvest their organ.
“All the vehicle (sic) CSP Patrick is driving was taken from suspects he arrested and murdered in cold blood.
“Even the white Camry spider he drove to work yesterday is owned by a Yahoo guy he murdered in cold blood. As at yesterday, his accounts number, 2282966036, Zenith bank, Agbazue Patrick Chukwuemeka has millions in it With choice properties scattered all over Nigeria. A CSP that earns a little above 200k a month has all of this gathered together. New World Mortuary Nteje is where most of the bodies he kills are deposited with the help of one Hausa guy named Sanni. He does all the illegalities concerning the morgue for them. They are supposed to deposit dead bodies to a teaching hospital morgue but due to the number of illegal killings on a daily basis, they are using a private morgue.”
Reacting in a statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, and obtained by Ikengaonline, the police Force said investigation has been opened concerning the allegations.
It read: “The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has set up a special investigation panel under the IGP Monitoring and Mentoring Unit to commence investigations into some weighty allegations of unprofessionalism, high-handedness, and extra-judicial killings leveled against its officers serving at the Zone 13 Command, Ukpo-Dunukofia, and the Anambra State Command on social media platforms.
