The Trade Union Congress of Nigeria (TUC) has charged Nigerian police to uncover the killers of Comrade Olaitan Oyerinde.
This was contained in a statement signed by the President of TUC,
Comrade Peter Esele yesterday, wondering why the police are delaying its
Esele while commenting on the issue cautioned the Nigerian Police not
to hide under the disguise that the case is in court, from briefing
Nigerians the outcome of their investigations.
“Oshiomhole is a seating governor of a state in this nation and the
slain comrade in question is his personal aide, in fact Oshiomhole
referred to him as his son. So if a seating governor in this country
cannot get clean investigation by the Nigerian Police, what then is the
hope of the ordinary man?” Esele questioned.
It would be recalled that Edo State Governor, Adams Oshiomhole during
the inauguration of a Code of Conduct for officers and men of Nigeria
Police, had expressed anger over the shoddy handling of the matter by
the police and called for the sacking of the Deputy Inspector General of
Police, DIG, Mr. Peter Gana and Deputy Commissioner of Police, Chris
Ezike for their ignoble roles in the investigation of the killers of
The IG, Mohammed Abubakar when asked to respond to the allegations
had said, “This case is in court and it may be sub judicial if I comment
on it. But we are going to respond to that comment at the appropriate
time because he (Oshiomhole) made allegations that are unfounded”.
