Imo Police Bans Activist Samuelson Iwuoha from Seeing Visitors‏

Samuelson Iwuoha
– Removed him from cell 7 and placed him in cell 1 , a dark cell for hardened criminals where he is undergoing torture.
Senior police officers of the force Headquarters Abuja stormed Owerri the Imo State Capital on the 24/7/14 and presented a letter from the Inspector General of Police to the Imo Police Commissioner Mr Abdulmajid Ali officially demanding the transfer of the case of murder which the Imo Police Command claimed involved Activist  Samuelson Iwuoha  and his wife. The transfer had effect from the 24th of July 2014.

But rather than release the social crusader and his wife to the Abuja visitors, the Police Commissioner simply gave them reasons and excuses that since he was not informed on time about the transfer, that he should be giving some time to tidy up the reports on the case files and that he will signal them when ready. He also informed them that Gov Okorocha and Mr Benjamin  Uwajumogu( Imo Speaker)  are involved in the matter.

The Commissioner of Police immediately called the Imo State Police Deputy Commissioner Mr D.O. Folawiyo and the IPO (Mr Obi)and informed them of the development. They quickly contacted Government House and informed them for they have been compromised on the issue.

Governor Okorocha on learning of the development quickly dispatched his ADC – Mr. Eberendu to see the Deputy Commissioner of Police.

Shortly after, an order came that Samuelson should not be allowed to see visitors and his relations who throng daily to see him. Also policemen stormed his cell to search him to see if they would find any writing materials around the activist.

The Deputy Commissioner was later seen discussing with other policemen saying that they had been ordered by the Governor to find a way to indict Samuelson in the murder case, that allowing Samuelson to move to Abuja would expose them the more.

Meanwhile, Samuelson’s wife is the only one authorized to see visitors and relations. Food given to her and her husband ends up at her own cell, for she is not permitted to go to the male cell where her husband stays. Policemen on duty always take the husbands ration to him, but Citizen Ikenna Samuelson sensing danger of food poisoning from the officers has refused to eat since 24th June 2014.

It is very obvious that Samuelsson’s life is in danger. They want him dead so that the truth of the murder of Late Arch. Franklin Okoli would not be known. They want him dead so that the 5 young men who murdered Franklin Okoli would be free to move about. They want him dead so that the EFCC petition written by Samuelson exposing the fraudulent activities of Speaker Benjamin Uwajiimogu would not be investigated.

The question is; why would the Imo Police Command reject orders from Force Headquarters to Hand over Samuelson and his wife to Senior Police Officers from Abuja. Why should the Imo Police Command take orders from Okorocha and Uwajumuaju who are interested parties in the murder case? Could it be that the Imo Police are truly hiding something from the public?

Samuelson must not be killed under false pretence. Samuelson must not be poisoned under any guise. The action of Imo police is very suspicious and self indicting. Let the case be investigated on a neutral ground.Imo people are watching

  1. Imo people should not keep quite and allow this to happen on their soil. Mr SAMUELSON has been writing for some time now to expose the evil practices that have been going on in the State house and should not be allowed to die for speaking out on bebalf of all IMO PEOPLE. Evil must be rooted out where ever it comes from. It will be a shame that the entire IMO CITIZENRY WILL NOT RISE UP IN DEFENCE OF THEIR RIGHTS. It is this level of corruption that has kept IMO STATE UNDEVELOPED FOR YEARS AND MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO CONTINUE.

  2. I wonder y the state hqtrs shld delay in the transfer of Sam to Abuja the press world shld continue to cry for injustice all i pray is for Sam Iwuoha to live.

  3. Honestly i am not surprise. this is the same person Ohakim flogged in his tenure cos he was saying the truth. now Okorocha want to label Him a murderer so that he will pave way for him. Okorocha is a monster. i still remember his promises during the manifesto in Assumpta. the people of IMO state will never forgive him if anything happen to SAMUELSON
