Security expert, Dr. Ona Ekhomu, has advised
the Federal Government and Edo State Government to jointly empanel a special
investigative task force that will detect the killers of Chief Dennis Abudah in
the Benin City bypass.
He said that a multi-agency task force led by
the Nigeria Police Force will have the synergy and energic resources required
to locate, identify and apprehend the killers of the U.S.-based native of Fugar
in Etsako Central LGA of Edo State. In a press statement issued in Lagos, Dr.
Ekhomu, who is the National President of Association of Industrial Security and
Safety Operators of Nigeria (AISSON), said that the murder of Dennis Abudah
must not be resolved by the usual practice of discounting Nigerian lives. He
said that the death of Chief Abudah was very sad, distasteful and totemic.
Chief Abudah’s death must agitate our collective conscience and must be solved.
He called for the immediate setting up of a multi-agency task force to be
headed by the Edo State Police Commissioner Mr. Ogbadu. He said the DSS Edo
State Command, the newly formed Edo State Vigilance Service, Operation
Wabaizigan and Edo State Special Constabulary must be involved in this task
He said that the operational strategy is to
combine human resources as well as investigative and intelligence capacities in
resolving the brutal murder of the Edo Chief. He said that detecting and
arresting the actual perpetrators will restore the confidence and respect of
citizens in their government.
Ekhomu said that the death of Chief Dennis Abudah must not be in vain. He also
urged prominent Etsako sons and daughters to take ownership of this matter. He
said that terrorism and attacks on soft targets are meant to instill shock and
fear of the terrorist in the populace.
He averred: “We shall not be cowered. We are greater than the terrorists. And as Nigerians we shall prevail while bandits and kidnappers shall be vanquished”.
