IGP Orders Probe Into Invasion Of Odili’s Residence

Inspector General of Police Usman Alkali Baba has ordered “extensive” investigations into the alleged break-in at Justice Mary Odili’s Abuja apartment.

Odili’s house was broken into on Friday, October 29, 2021.

The Federal Ministry of Justice and the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission both denied any involvement.

The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, issued a statement carrying the IGP’s order.

“The Force’s leadership is not aware of this assignment and has never ordered Police personnel to carry it out,” Mba stated.

The statement read in part, “Consequently, the IGP has directed the Force Intelligence Bureau to conduct a discrete investigation into the incident. He assured the commitment of the Force to the safety and security of the members of the Judiciary and Nigerians in general.

“He further called for calm, promising that the Force will do all within its powers to unravel the perpetrators and motives behind the breach with a view to bringing all indicted persons to book.

“Meanwhile, the IGP has directed the Commissioner of Police, Federal Capital Territory to strengthen security around the street and residence of Her Lordship, Justice Mary Odili JSC to ensure her safety and also to prevent a reoccurrence of the unfortunate incident.

“The IGP assured that the details of Police investigations would be made public on conclusion of investigations.”
