Police Parades Corps Member For Allegedly Conspiring With Emir To Abduct Tow People In Osun

There is anxiety in Ogbadibo Local Government Area of Benue State over the alleged arrest of a member representing Ogbadibo state constituency in the Benue State House of Assembly, Hon. Samuel Agada by the police.

DAILY POST gathered that Agada was arrested following an altercation with the police when he went to secure the release of a constituent.

Sources said Agada was manhandled unjustly by the police, which infuriated his aides who protested against it.

It is suspected that Hon Agada’s travails may not be unconnected with the political dichotomy in the state.

Agada is believed to be neutral in the political dynamics in the state as he relates with everyone in his constituency irrespective of political link.

A youth leader in Ogbadibo, Comrd Ameh Ojema said, “the arrest of the Assembly member is uncalled for as he was carrying out his constituency oversight for a constituent.

“He has always stood with his people at all times and has refused to align with any of the political tendencies in the area.”

Ojema said Agada’s travails were politically motivated as they were suspecting a faction of the Benue All Progressives Congress, APC.

Another youth from Ogbadibo, Mr. Joseph Udo took to his Facebook page to condemn the arrest of the lawmaker which he alleged was politically motivated.

He said, “There is a difference between a big lie and small lie but on this one this guy is clean.

“Stop the blackmailing, politics is deep; Hon. Samuel Agada Awuchi is a responsible person.”

Benue Police Command Spokesperson, SP Catherine Anene, when contacted, said she doesn’t have details but that Agada may have been arrested for assault on police officers.
