The operatives of the Nigerian Police Force on Friday stormed the residence of Peace Ekom Robert, a Nigerian woman who was declared wanted by the Force.
Ekom who revealed this to SaharaReporters alleged that the police had been harassing her relatives and close friends and had stationed at strategic spots surrounding her house.
She said, “They have been calling my family members since this morning. They are harassing my friends and the people that I am close to. They surround everywhere. They want to pick me up. And this is because they want to silence me.”
SaharaReporters reported on August 19, 2023 that Robert sued the Acting Inspector General of the Nigeria Police Force, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, the Police Service Commission, three police officers, and one Ifenyinwa Anthonia Olua (Ugo) to the Akwa Ibom State High Court in Uyo.
Ekom is seeking N520 million in damages for the alleged violation of her fundamental and constitutional rights.
Ekom had also alleged that the Commissioner of Police, Admin Force Criminal Investigation Department (FCID) Abuja, CP Ibrahim Baba Zango, has been making attempts on her life, sending police personnel to kidnap and kill her despite the pendency of court action against him and police authorities.
Ekom categorically stated that she at no time revolted against the officers of the NPF over the proper conduct of investigation on this offshore transaction that was initiated by Ifeyinwa Anthonia Olua and her partners.
