Published

on

An Ibadan-based businessman, Mr. Peter Asa, has petitioned the new Commissioner of Police in Oyo State, Nwachukwu Enwonwu, over alleged infringement on his fundamental rights by the police.

Asa, in his petition, entitled: ‘Save My Soul’, and made available to newsmen on Tuesday in Ibadan, said that his rights had been grossly infringed upon.

He alleged that some police officers were being used to silence him over a certain property sold to him by a company, UAC, in 2020 for N26 million.

Asa, popularly known as King Zion, named a certain man as the brain behind his recent detention for three days at the Iyaganku police station.

The businessman said that the inaugural speech of the new police boss, where he pledged never to tolerate any infringement on the fundamental human rights of any member of the public by his officers and men, motivated his distress call.

Reports have it that Enwonwu, who took over from Mr. Shina Olukolu, who had been transferred to the Force Criminal Investigation Department in Lagos State, assumed duty on June 1.

Asa, while alleging that the man in question had sponsored several attacks on him, using security agents, implored the police commissioner to carry out an investigation on the case.

“Two officers from Iyaganku, on a recent Thursday afternoon, around 2 pm., at the premises of a bank in Dugbe, arrested and treated me like a common criminal.

“I was taken to Iyaganku police station and kept in detention with criminally-minded suspects for three days.

“The officers arrested me and said my attention was needed at Iyaganku.

“There is no iota of truth in what I was alleged of. They said I was responsible for the fire incident at the said property, which I duly paid for over 18 years ago.

“The ownership right on the matter is still in court and I will not want to go there. But as a pastor, I know the truth will prevail at the end, as I have faith in God that I will get justice, no matter what,” he said.

Asa said that the fire incident happened in broad daylight on April 15 and that he was arrested on May 14, allegedly on a trumped-up charge that he was responsible for the inferno.
