Nosa Uhumwangho, counsel to Deputy Commissioner of Police Abba Kyari, on Tuesday, grilled a SARS victim and relative of suspected kidnapper, Chukwudidumee Onuamadike, otherwise known as Evans.
The victim Nzube Obiechinna had petitioned the panel over unlawful arrest, detention, and torture. She alleged three officers had arrested her and her husband on instruction from DCP Kyari.
During her cross-examination on Tuesday, Uhumwangho revealed the police arrested Nzube because of her links to Evans. He also asked the petitioner to confirm if she knew a certain Emeka Nwokolo, to which she answered in the affirmative.
Uhumwangho thereafter tendered as exhibit Nzube’s statement to the police dated June 5, 2017. He urged the petitioner to admit that her arrest took place the same day she wrote the statement.
However, Nzube disagreed but said she wrote the statement three days after her arrest on June 2, 2017.
