Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, has threatened to release CCTV footage of his home invasion after the police described the incident as burglary.
Senator Ekweremadu said he will make good on his threat if the police do not withdraw their statement.
You will recall that on Tuesday, November 6, 2018, the deputy senate president said there was an attempt to assassinate him. One of the gunmen was caught and handed over to the police.
However the police concluded that the attack was a burglary because the same suspects who invaded the home of the deputy senate president also burgled other homes.
Reacting, Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, senator representing Abia south, drew the attention of his colleagues to the police statement and called for a thorough investigation.
Thereafter Senator Ekweremadu said the police could not figure out the CCTV at his home when they eventually came.
“They (police) 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 is not aware of.
“I may now be forced to release those footage to the media, international communities so that Nigerians and ordinary people will judge whether it was a case of burglary or attempt to kill me or whether they just want to come to my house to have a breakfast or have a handshake with me”.
