The suspect, Lawrence Ajodo, was paraded by the police on Thursday alongside 13 others. These are the Newspaper headlines we are monitoring today, the 12th day of November 2021 at NewsWireNGR.
However, the police said their investigations revealed that “there is no involvement at all” of the officials of the office of the AGF in the raid.
Ojodu and the other suspects, the police said, “are loose cannons” who forged “different documents” and carried out their “crimes under false representations.”
According to a statement signed by a spokesperson in the office of the AGF, Umar Gwandu, Mr Ajodu’s case is that “of a drowning man scavenging for a dying partner.”
“The attention of the Office of the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has been drawn to a confession of a suspect during interrogation in the investigation of the recent invasion of the residencecof the highly respected Justice of the Supreme Court; Justice Mary Peter Odili,” the statement said.
