Ondo Killing: Police, NSCDC Head For Showdown
Nearly a week into the gruesome murder of two siblings in Akure, there are speculations that the NSCDC may be trying to shield its officers who have been fingered in the matter.
While the Ondo state police command has fired this allegation against the Nigerian Security And Civil Defense Corpse (NSCDC), the latter have claimed that both the rough driver and the trigger-happy officer are not their men.
The two security agencies in the state have enmeshed themselves in a war of words with the police command mandating the NSCDC to produce the alleged criminal for prosecution.
According to the police spokesman, Femi Joseph, the command is worried and concerned that such a monumental tragedy occurred in the state with the accusing fingers pointing at the direction of the sister security agency without any move by them to produce the suspect.
The police image maker, however, believes something is definitely fishy which must be unraveled.
Reacting to the police allegation, the public relations officer of the NSCDC, Ondo state command, Samuel Oladapo insisted that the officer was not attached to the state command but came from Abuja.
What he failed to clarify however was who among the two suspected killers was actually from Abuja.
Bounce News had earlier reported that an NSCDC patrol van hit a moving okada on Tuesday and killed the rider while his two passengers were critically injured.
The accident reportedly sparked off pandemonium at the NSCDC office in Akure on Wednesday which degenerated into the major street crisis in the state capital.
In an attempt to disperse the irate protesters, unknown officer at the command office was alleged to have fired a gunshot which led to the death of the deceased's sister.
Nearly a week into the incident, no arrest has been made regarding the killing and all indications revealed that NSCDC are not ready to produce either of the two suspects.
