asking the police boss to take over the investigation of the gruesome murder.

addressed to the IGP, called on the force Headquarters to take over the
investigation of the murder case from the Delta State police command.

Headquarters is being invited to take over the investigation of their matter,
so that individuals suspected to be involved in the murder to be prosecuted in
accordance with our law, “Falana said. The human rights lawyer had, in a
petition to the police boss earlier, alleged that the late Mr. Arthur Agbe was

According to Falana, “these artisan our client’s
son inclusive were attacked by these hoodlums. Unfortunately in the process. Our
