73 Views

Minority Caucus Leader of the House of Representatives has decried the alleged raid on Abuja residence of Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi; the Chairman, South East Governors Forum.

In a statement by the Minority Leader of the house, Rep. Ndudi Elumelu (PDP-Delta) the caucus said that the raid was menacing and inexcusable development.

The lawmakers said that the law enforcement agencies were free to do their job with respect to the rule of law.

The caucus said it was, however, worried that police authorities had denied foreknowledge of the operation and called for thorough investigation.

“We received with angst and rude shock the report of illegal raid on Abuja residence of the governor of Ebonyi and Chairman of South East Governors Forum, Chief Dave Umahi.

“The fact that the police high commands, including the office of the Inspector-General of Police, have distanced themselves from the operation makes it a suspectious operation.

The minority parties lawmakers called on the Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mohammed Adamu, to intervene.
