I have followed with utter disdain and unreserved pity for the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) in the way and manner it carried out an unwarranted stint action against citizens Daniel and Timothy Elombah, an act which turned out to have been inspired by nothing shot of a desire for massaging the ego of a man who apparently is occupying an office just for the sake of the vacuum therein.
Since the Police have not considered us worthy enough to receive their own side of the story either officially or otherwise, we are therefore constrained to draw conclusion from our informed position.
This act by IG of Police and his goons therefore, is nothing short of Institutional calausness, operational truancy, cluelessness and unprofessionalism. It is as puerile and laughable as well as it is condemnable by all reasonable might.
It has further exposed the Police force as an entity in shambles running on a system and hierarchy that is wallowing in pathetic decadence. That is why its act of stooping so low to stampede on the fundamental right of law abiding citizens on the first day of a New Year is not shocking to those who are aware of their antecedents.
I have worked closely with both sir Diniel Elombah as my Publisher and Tim as my Editor. I can say without the least reservation that both men are law abiding citizens carrying out their duties lawfully conscious of the overwhelming public right to know.
I hereby add my voice to the clarion call for the unconditional release of these decent people.
Finally, someone in the Police force should endeavor to school the IG that nowhere in the history of the world has the Media – a fourth estate of the realm – ever been gagged successfully.
