How a Robber implicated an innocent Nigerian man coming from the Mosque.

How a Robber implicated an innocent Nigerian man coming from the Mosque.

Nigeria Police and their incompetence.
This is part of the things that really winds me up about the Nigerian police.If the case is not a high profile case or a rich man involved,they don't mind if an innocent man dies in jail! In fact for a price they will gladly kill an innocent man in jail.I remember in the days when they will release a guilty armed robber sentenced to death,or one being sought by the authorities.They will arrest an innocent man on the streets for wondering,kill him and say this was the robbery suspect killed or this was the robbery suspect trying to escape!

I will like to think the Nigeria Police has since been taken to better height,i don't know for sure.
But back to my point,what annoys me is the fact that,a man only has to say you are guilty of
a certain crime,GBAM! They then arrest you just like that,nothing like an are left to rot in that jail,except you got money to buy your way out! Like Fela sang in one of his songs,"Them go lock you some months some months,them go call am investigation" Now this song was released in 1975 or thereabouts,so this injustice by the Nigeria Police has not just began,its been an epidemic for centuries!

This innocent man in this case was pointed out by an armed robber as being one of them,the poor guy was just coming back from a mosque,the robber on the other hand had just been arrested from an abortive operation.The innocent man pleads his innocence,but in Nigeria that does not count,he was arrested and locked up for three days before he was finally freed..Now he was not freed because of the Police investigation,why was he freed? You will find that out later in the story.

The incompetent Nigeria police,only do their work when a rich man is involved or when paid off.
But if a man points out another man as being in their gang of robbers,and had just been on an operation,isn't there a simple way of checking where the accused guy was when those operations were taking place? This man was coming from the mosque,how difficult is it for the Nigeria Police to have gone to the mosque and find out if he was there or not? I don't understand my country.I really don't.

Meanwhile the rich corrupt men are driving round the streets in their millions of Naira cars,with these same police guarding and hailing them!

Find out below now how an innocent man was locked up and tortured by the police after being implicated by an armed robber in Nigeria...
A robbery suspect, Ahmed Adekeye, arrested by the police in Lagos, has confessed that he lied against a man, Tunde Adekambi, who he had earlier claimed to be a member of his gang.
According to Punch Metro, 23-year-old Adekambi(right) was arrested while he was returning from a morning prayer at a mosque in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos.
It was gathered that on Saturday, May 2, 2015, a gang of robbers stormed the area at about 1.30am and unleashed terror on the residents for about an hour.A vigilance group in the area confronted the gang, which had about six members, and arrested Adekeye. The other gang members reportedly escaped.
The following day, members of the vigilance group were said to have arrested Adekambi.
It was gathered that Adekeye told the vigilance group members that Adekambi was one of the gang members.

Nigeria police,the police is your friend.

PUNCH Metro learnt that Adekeye also told the police at Ajangbadi that Adekambi was a gang member. The case was subsequently transferred to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad for further investigation.
Adekeye from Isin, Kwara State, said he lied to the police about Adekambi’s involvement because he did not want to rot in jail alone.He, however, begged Adekambi to forgive him for making him suffer in detention.
He said, 
“We are six in the gang, but I was the only one that was arrested on that day. Others ─ Lekan, Biodun, Aloma and two others; I don’t know their names ─ escaped. While in Ajangbadi, I lied to the police that Adekambi was an accomplice.
“Aloma, a cobbler in Suru Alaba, called me on the phone and asked me to meet him in the Ilogbo, Ajangbadi area. I met him and others at a hemp smoking joint.
“They brought three cutlasses and three wooden batons. I took one of the wooden batons.We went to Orisa Street, and stayed in an uncompleted building till about 1am. At about 1.30am, we went to our victim’s house. The man and his family cooperated with us, until we cut him with a cutlass. He then let out a scream which attracted people in the neighbourhood.So, the vigilance members came and everybody fled. I was caught and handed over to the police.When they brought Tunde (Adekambi) later, I lied that he was a gang member. At SARS too, I initially insisted that Tunde was one of us because I did not want to be punished alone. But after a few days, I decided to tell the truth. So, I told the police that Tunde was innocent.I did not know why I implicated him. I knew the police would torture a suspected robber, but I did not want to go through it alone. Our usual operation is to use motorcycles to snatch peoples’ bags.”
Adekambi, who hails from Ilorin, Kwara State, said he was shocked for being named as a member of the robbery gang.
He said, 
“On that fateful day, I had just finished prayer and was coming back home at about 7am when some people on a motorcycle stopped beside me. They were members of a vigilance group.They asked me what I was doing there and I explained that I was returning from the mosque. They did not believe me. They tore my shirt, calling me an armed robber. When we got to where Ahmed (Adekeye) was handcuffed, he told them that I was a member of the gang. That was the beginning of my ordeal.
“I was detained at the station for three days and transferred to SARS. I am still in shock, but I have forgiven him. I do not have an option.”
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, confirmed the incident. He added that Adekambi had been released.
He said,“After investigation, we discovered that Adekambi was innocent, and the suspect did not know him from Adam.
“We have released Adekambi.”
Yea indeed they have,but not due to your investigations,it was only because the robber confessed.A big shame indeed.
