The Anambra State Police Command cautions the public against misinformation propagated by the legal representative of Bonny Okonkwo, a criminal suspect presently in custody for Criminal Defamation.
Dismissing claims that Okonkwo’s arrest was prompted by Sir Emeka Offor, the police assert their autonomy in executing their duties without external influence. Emphasizing the right of citizens to report crimes, the police underline their constitutional obligation to investigate such matters thoroughly.
The arrest and detention adhered to due process, ensuring a meticulous examination of the alleged offenses. Okonkwo’s persistence in criminal activities, even within detention, prompted a thorough search and the denial of electronic device usage.
The legal detention, sanctioned by the court, aligns with both legal and procedural norms. The public is urged to resist succumbing to the propaganda circulated by Okonkwo’s counsel, who attempts to garner sympathy despite the gravity of his client’s actions.
Contrary to the defense’s assertion of mere criticism, Okonkwo admitted to disseminating false information on a social media platform, branding a Meter Manufacturing Company, commissioned by the Vice President in Oraifite, as an empty warehouse. The police denounce such destructive activism.
The police, on the verge of concluding their investigation, assure the public that due legal procedures will be followed in arraigning the suspect before the court. The Anambra State Police Command reaffirms its commitment to upholding citizens’ rights within the framework of the constitution and relevant laws.
