Facts emerging from the recent attack on the Imo State Police Headquarters and the Owerri Correctional Facility revealed that the Commissioner of Police ignored credible intelligence sent from the DSS warning of the impending attack.

The DSS, it was gathered, had following the receipt of the intelligence, discreetly conducted a vulnerability assessment of the 2 correctional facilities in Imo state and advised fortifications based on the discovered security weakness of the facility.

The commissioner of police received a credible intelligence report 48-72 hours before Monday, warning of an impending attack on the Police Headquarters in Imo state between April 4 and 6. Yet, Police did not heed to actionable intelligence, the consequence of which has led to over 1800 inmates loose into society.

Eons Intelligence gathered that another tragedy was averted on Tuesday as the military, acting on credible intelligence from the DSS, guarded the Okigwe prison against a similar attack from gunmen, believed to the members of the Indigenous People of Biafra.

Following Monday’s attack, Nasiru Mohammed, the Imo State Commissioner of Police has been immediately redeployed while the DC has been appointed as the Acting Commissioner of Police in the state.

Questions, however, remain unanswered as regards Monday’s attack on the Imo State Police Headquarters and the Owerri Correctional Facility.

First of which is how the formation was attacked by the gunmen who attacked for hours without the deployment of reinforcements and casualties resulting from a firefight.

Although the Police say the armoury is intact, intelligence experts speculate, that the attack could also be a ploy to cover up for the mismanagement of arms and ammunition in the command.

If They Like, Let Them Kidnap My Son, I Will Never Pay Ransom To Bandits – El-Rufai Vows

Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai has made his stance on paying ransom to bandits clear.
He said he will never pay ransom to bandits even if they kidnap his family members.
The governor said this in a radio chat on Friday in Kaduna to corroborate his government’s policy of not negotiating with bandits.
Mr El-Rufai had said bandits are at war with Nigeria and there is no other way to approach the current insurgency but for security forces to take the war to the bandits and recover forests where they are occupying.
In his current remarks on Friday, Mr El-Rufai said he had warned his family members to be careful to avoid being abducted. He said he also told them he would never pay a ransom for their freedom, should any of them get into the hands of bandits.
“I mean it and I will say it again here. Even if my son is kidnapped, I will rather pray for him to make heaven instead, because I won’t pay any ransom.”
Speaking on efforts of his government in securing the release of the students kidnapped at the Federal College of Forestry Mechanisation, Kaduna, in March, the governor said the government would keep exploring other ways to get them back to their families but stressed that the government is “absolutely not paying ransom.”
He said the state government will keep exploring those other means until the students are released.
Mr El-Rufai has been under pressure from the parents of the students, other concerned persons and groups to negotiate with the bandits for the release of the students.
The state governments of Katsina, Niger and Zamfara were believed to have negotiated with the abductors for the release of hundreds of students kidnapped from schools in the states.
The federal government too was also believed to have negotiated with the abductors of students from a girls’ school in Dapchi, Yobe State in an incident in which the terrorist-kidnappers withheld one of the students, Leah Sharibu, allegedly because she refused to renounce her faith, one of their conditions for the release of the students.
