Police nab 3 kidnappers, rescue 4 victims in Kogi

FORMER Commissioner
of Police in Lagos State,
Alhaji Abubakar Tsav has
petitioned the Inspector
General of Police, IGP
Solomon Arase over
an alleged assault on a
uniformed police officer
in Benue State.
Tsav, a social critic,
disclosed this in a press
statement in Makurdi
yesterday that the police
officer who was on duty
in Government House
Makurdi, was assaulted
by one Abraham
Kwanghngu, Senior
Special Assistant to the
Governor of the state,
Samuel Ortom on Special
“It is reported that one
Abraham Kwanghngu, a
Senior Special Assistant to
Gov Samuel Ortom who
is also a close relation to
the Governor, slapped a

“The IGP has been
duly informed of
this unprovoked and
brazen assault of a
law enforcement agent

humiliation of a law
enforcement officer never
happened during the era
of Akume and Suswam,”
Tsav fumed.
But in a swift reaction,
an aide of the Governor
who reacted on behalf of
Kwanghngu who could
not be reached before
going to press, described
the allegation as a figment
of Tsav’s imagination.
The aide who did not
want his identity known,
wondered how Tsav,
a retired senior police
officer would concoct such
story with the sole aim of
giving the government of
Ortom a bad name.
“Why would a retired top
cop like Tsav condescend
so low to peddle lies with
the sole aim of causing
disaffection and smearing
the image of the Governor
and his aide. I urge him
to seek better pastimes,
as lies like the one he
has told are too cheap to
believe,” the aide said.
However, Tsav
who is currently the
Commissioner of Public
Complaints Commission
in the state said: “in
my capacity as the
ombudsman, I expect this
brute be made to face the
law for the purpose of
protecting and defending
our servicemen. This
