“Operatives of ‘A’ division Warri on 16/5/2023, received a complaint from a 72yr old woman, that while she was selling her goods, one Favour Aloh ‘f’ age 23yrs of Tipper junction and Ginikach Nina ‘f’ age 32yrs of Onitsha in Anambra state came with some fake currencies,” the PPRO stated.

In a related development, a woman has reportedly died while other residents of Gbagyi Villa community in Kaduna sustained varying degrees of injuries during a protest.

The residents were protesting when agents of Kaduna State Government embarked on the demolition of Gbaygi Villa residential complex on the outskirts of Kaduna metropolis.

According to a source, “youth groups and other inhabitants of the area, and from the neighbourhood came out to protest against the demolition of houses and other structures when they sited bulldozers and armed security men who were deployed for the exercise.”

“The uniformed men started shooting to scare the resilient youths who were chanting songs and slogans, away. On hearing the news of the demolition and the gunshots, a woman simply identified as Sarah collapsed as her blood pressure was believed to have shot up, ”

“She was rushed to the hospital for medical attention, but unfortunately she couldn’t make it and she died before getting to the hospital.”

“The youths that massively came out to defend the Gbaygi villa from demolition vowed to take their lives into their hands to defend the community and defend the court judgement said to have been earlier secured by the residents of the community against the demolition exercise.”

Lukas Daniel, a resident, said that “if the authority that is supposed to defend the judgement is now rising against the community in total disobedience to the judgment, we wonder the kind of society we are living, and the legacy Government is bequeathing.”

” Though some houses had been demolished while the youths were resisting, eventually the resilient youths prevailed and KASUPDA with their security men retreated with a promise to return on a surprise attack, perhaps at night.”
