#EndSARS: Sack IGP Adamu immediately, group tells Buhari


The Human Rights Writers Association of Nigeria, HURIWA, has called for the immediate dismissal of the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu.

The rights group said there is evidence of state collusion in the absence of any sort of effective and efficient policing which gave way to a general breakdown of law and order all around the country marked by massive invasion of warehouses by hungry and desperate Nigerians to loot storages of foodstuffs designated as COVID-19 palliatives donated by the Organized Private Sector(OPS) to States across the country.

HURIWA said Adamu should be sacked forthwith for failing to prevent Nigerians from massively invading public and private properties in Cross Rivers, Lagos, Abia, Imo, Anambra, Kaduna, Edo, Plateau, Adamawa and other States to steal, destroy and burn down assets of certain politically exposed individuals.

HURIWA said the unarmed hoodlums succeeded only because Adamu failed to command and control the operatives of the police to carry out their jobs.

The group further noted that an earlier order made by the IGP withdrawing police protection from VIPs was the tonic needed by these youthful hoodlums to loot and destroy public and private assets of Nigeria and Nigerians.

HURIWA said that Adamu has no legal reason to remain in office with the massive scale of attacks of public and private properties carried out by hoodlums who did not have to worry about the police since the police operatives were nowhere near the crime scenes.

HURIWA stated that the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu violated several sections of the Constitution by his gross dereliction of duty.

“We are miffed and shocked that the Nigerian Police Force through the IGP was not appropriately directed to act within the bounds of the law to stop the breakdown of Law and order all around the country.

“The same Adamu, who had ordered the withdrawal of police services to very important Nigerians which largely motivated mobs and hoodlums to invade facilities owned by these individuals and the states of the Federation to loot and destroy these same Properties and after the destructions have successfully been completed only for the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu to give order for his officers to begin what he calls immediate mobilisation of all police operational assets and resources to bring an end to the wanton violence, killings, looting and destruction of public and private property, to reclaim the public space from hoodlums masquerading as protesters in some parts of the country.”

“HURIWA is therefore calling for the immediate sack of the Inspector General of Police Mohammed Adamu who has failed to provide effective leadership skills that would have prevented the total collapse of law and order in Nigeria including the communal conflict in Fagba Lagos state between Hausa and Yoruba in which scores were killed and properties destroyed without the police intervening to bring these henious acts to an end except when community vigilantes and community elders mediated a truce.

“It is very clear that this IGP has only led this Nigeria Police Force to the cesspool of professional misconduct and gross indiscipline to the extent that the Police could not prevent mobs from invading public and private properties of Nigerians which largely was motivated by the absence of armed police operatives,” the rights said.

#BBNaija 2020: Get out, I’m done with you – Erica blasts Laycon

Big Brother Naija Lockdown housemate, Ngozi Nlewedim, popularly known as Erica, has berated fellow housemates, Laycon, for gossiping about her with the others. Laycon, who has a very strong feeling for Erica, seems to have been affected by the outcome of rejection as the Abia-born female housemate picked Kiddwaya over him. For this reason, Laycon has been seen at different times and locations discussing Erica and telling fellow housemates how he feels being rejected. Erica had once made it clear that while she is mentally attracted to Laycon, she is physically attracted to her lover, Kiddwaya.
