OLISA IGBONWA BURIED ALIVE IN ALOR, ANAMBRA STATE IS FALSE- ANAMBRA POLICE COMMAND
The Nigerian Police in her “Anambra State Police Command Bulletin” of 2nd March 2022 have stated that the publication about an alleged burial of one Olisa Igbonwa who was purportedly buried alive in Alor, is false and misleading.
According to a statement signed by DSP Ikenga Tochukwu Anipr, PPRO Anambra State Police Command, have stated that their attention was drawn to a trending video clip and online publication credited to one Ifeoma Okeke of Umunna TV that one Chief Olisa Igbonwa was buried Alive In Alor, Anambra State by the Elders of Okebunoye village, Alor, Idemili South local government area of Anambra state” and that the elders met and took a decision to bury and mourn Mr Igbonwa alive for taking ‘Ichie Ngene’ title by himself in the community.
He stated that the publication is not only false but misleading as the alleged person is still alive
The publication is not only false but also misleading. The Command wishes to state that Olisa Igbonwa is alive and was never buried alive as alleged in the publication.
Consequently, the Command received a formal complaint from one chief Olisa Igbonwa that he received a chieftiancy title from HRM Igwe Alor but was threatened by one Mr Uzoma Igbonwa and others to renounce the chieftiancy title within 30days or he will face dare consequences”
Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police CP Echeng Echeng has ordered for discreet investigation into the matter and to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident in order to bring perpetrators to book.
The CP urged members of the public especially the press to always cross check their facts before publication in order not to mislead the public.
Meanwhile, investigation is still ongoing and further details shall be communicated please
