Ebonyi State Governor orders arrest of hoodlums who allegedly inserted hot-iron inside private part of Local Government Vice Chairman

Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has directed the Commissioner of Police, Mr Awosola Awotunde, to fish out the criminal suspects, who allegedly inserted a hot-iron inside the private part of the Vice Chairman of Ikwo Local Government Area of the state.

Governor Umahi, who gave the directive on Thursday, when the new police boss paid him a courtesy visit at the Government House, Abakiliki. Umahi, expressed bitterness over the incident, and described it as “barbaric”.

"The hoodlums inserted a hot-iron inside the private part of the vice chairman, while they cut the tendons of some men in the area. I have demanded for the immediate arrest of the perpetrators and would never allow the matter to go untreated. I will follow the matter up to any level, even reporting it to President Muhammadu Buhari because the victims were actually kidnapped,” he said.

The governor said that he always insisted on fairness and justice to all and had never abused his office to order that anyone be punished unjustly.“I have always maintained that whether it is the Peoples Democratic Party or All Progressive Congress, among others, the life of every human being is important to us.

“I hate to see blood and your officers can attest that I have never supported evil,” he said.Umahi said that he had always propagated the philosophy “that all perpetrators of evil must be arrested and prosecuted, even if they are my brothers or sisters.

”He pledged to cooperate with the new CP but insisted that his work would only be made tedious, “if a man is made a woman.”“Where there is fairness, there is no crisis as someone without a gun can neutralise another with a gun by insisting on his right, which should not be matched upon.

“The main opposition party in the state boasts it would write the election result and use the federal might on us but I declare that we pay the federal might.“Everybody owns the federal might and the present Inspector-General of Police and the Director-General of the Department of State Service (DSS) do not break the law.“We have actually prepared for this election with anti-terrorism trainings to guard against intimidation of the common man in the state,” the governor said.


Chicago Police has said that two potential suspects in the alleged racial attack on "Empire" actor Jussie Smollett have been arrested. "Police can detain the potential suspects for an additional 24 hours past the 48 hour holding period under special circumstances, but it must go through the prosecutors office and has to be clear process," Chicago PD told ABC News and also confirmed that “they (the suspects) have a relationship with Jussie”.


Chicago Police also added that "detectives have probable cause that they may have been involved in an alleged crime and we are working to corroborate the allegations and investigative timeline as our investigation continues".



According to TMZ, the arrested men are brothers from Nigeria named Olabinjo and Abimbola Osundairo, and Chicago police are now calling them "potential suspects" as opposed to 'persons of interest'.

They also shut down any reports that there was evidence to classify the alleged attack as a hoax.  "While we haven't found any video documenting the alleged attack, there is also no evidence to say that this is a hoax.

The alleged victim is being cooperative at this time and continues to be treated as a victim, not a suspect" police added. Attorney Gloria Schmidt, who is representing the brothers told Chicago CBS station WBBM that her clients were detained at O'Hare Airport on Wednesday evening and were unaware of the attack on Smollett.

"When they first learned what happened to him, they were horrified. This is someone that they know, this is someone that they work with, so they don't want to see somebody go through that. They really don’t understand how police even got information that linked them to this horrific crime, but they’re not guilty of it"  Schmidt said.
