Policeman probed for allegedly snatching housewife, detaining son

The Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Monday Kuryas, has ordered the probe of a police officer, Danladi Edibo, for allegedly snatching the wife of another man and detaining the son.

Danladi allegedly handcuffed and detained 22-year-old Chukwunonso Ogbukagu, for disapproving the relationship with his mother.

The Police Public Relations Officer, Haruna Mohammed, disclosed this on Sunday while speaking with journalists in Awka.

According to Chukwunonso he had gone to visit his mother, who recently left his dad to rent a separate apartment in Nimo, a town in the Njikoka LGA, when he noticed that she had a male friend, who always visited her in the apartment.

Chukwunonso said “When I demanded from my mother who the man was, I found out that he was the same police officer, who had a problem with my father and also caused my parents to separate.

“Having realised that I knew who he was, he called some policemen, who came with guns and handcuffed and detained me in a toilet in the apartment.

“I stayed there for four days without food or water, and later I realised that I could die if I continued to be there; so, I summoned courage and managed to escape.

“I’m begging the Commissioner of Police to come to my aid, because my life is in danger as Danladi may come after me.”

The father of the victim, Ikenna Ogbukagu, who had petitioned the CP about the development asked that Danladi be restrained from further harassing him and members of his family.

“ASP Danladi Edibo has been harassing me and members of my family. He took away my wife from me and I said I had no problem with that, that he could keep her. He has taken her, rented a house for her in Nimo and I did not protest, yet he has been threatening me.

“The last time he came to my house around 1am with police officers, destroyed my doors and arrested me, saying that I sponsored cultists. There is nothing he has not done to me. I am very afraid for my life now; that is why I petitioned the Commissioner of Police to come to my rescue,” he said

Danladi is an Assistant Superintendent of Police attached to the Anti-Cult Unit in Enugwu-Ukwu in the Njikoka Local Government Area of Anambra state.
