Bayelsa Community Petitions AIG Baura Over Bayelsa Police Command’s Protection Of Its Men In Shooting Of Vigilante Group Members

13:24 Sep 26 2014 Obelle suburb of Yenagoa local Government area of Bayelsa State


Residents of the Obelle suburb of Yenagoa local Government area of Bayelsa State have sent a petition to the Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Zone 5, Mr. Musa Baura, to investigate the Bayelsa Command over its handling of the shooting last week of two members of a vigilante group by its men. Valentine Ntomchukwu

The incident happened when the policemen reportedly responded to a distress call over an armed robbery attack in progress in the area.

The Command first responded by ordering the arrest and detention of two of its men over the shooting of the vigilantes in an apparent mistaken identity and act of negligence.

The two victims: Emmanuel Gabot, 42 and Anderson Tunah, 28, were in pursuit of suspected armed robbers when a detachment of policemen shot them in the stomach. Both of them are currently in critical condition at the Federal Medical Centre.

The Obelle Community and the families of the victims allege that the Police Command, under Commissioner Valentine Ntomchukwu, is now trying to cover up the shooting of Gabot and Tunah, describing the development as worrisome and provocative.

In the petition to AIG Baura, signed by their counsel, Barr. S.B. Dorgu, the community alleged gross violation of the right of the injured persons.

"We are shocked that the Police, who had through the Yenagoa Division accepted blame and pleaded mistaken identity, have turned around to accuse our clients of armed robbery,” they said.

"Our clients, who have been receiving treatment as part of the plea by the State and Divisional Police Commands to forestall protest by the residents, have been subjected to inhuman treatments and chained to the hospital bed with handcuffs.”

The letter further stated that the police have also been mounting pressure on the victim of the armed robbery incident to change his statement and accuse the injured vigilante members of the attempted robbery.

"Independent investigations done by our chambers on behalf of our clients showed a deliberate attempt by the Yenagoa Divisional Command of the Police to cover up the incident, free his accused men and frame up the victims,” the complaint said.

“As part of this grand plot, the police have gone on air to misinform the public that the innocent victims are criminals without proper investigation.”

They therefore urged the Zonal Command to call for the case file and launch an independent investigation into the criminal acts of the policemen attached to the Divisional and State Commands.

Efforts by SaharaReporters to obtain a comment from AIG Baura on the petition have so far met with no success.

The detrimental impact sleep apnea has on the lives of countless sufferers is a very serious matter. Fortunately, with a bit of knowledge and research, it is possible for just about anyone to learn effective techniques for managing the condition. Review the ideas below for some useful information about battling sleep apnea successfully. If you suffer from sleep apnea, you should use a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure machine while sleeping. This will help you treat your sleep apnea and get you on the path to having a full nights sleep. This machine uses either a face or nasal mask to pump air while you sleep. Adjust your CPAP machine. Most machines come with default settings that might not correspond to your needs. You should be able to regulate the airflow: try different settings and choose one that seems to work for you. If you feel like your machine is not working like it should, try changing the settings again. Improve your sleep apnea by slimming down a bit. Recent research showed dramatic improvements in overweight men who shed 25 pounds over a period of one year to reduce sleep apnea symptoms. In some cases, the weight loss resulted in a cure of sleep apnea where no further treatment of the condition was necessary. Sleeping at a high altitude can worsen your sleep apnea because of the lower levels of oxygen. If you are going to a place located higher than what you are used to, take a CPAP machine with you. The best thing to do would be to completely avoid high altitude. Drink one cup of caffeinated coffee a few hours before you go to sleep. It may seem silly to drink a caffeine drink at night, but this can actually help keep your throat open while you sleep. You may have to play around with what time you drink the coffee to avoid restlessness. Weight loss can be a big help for those that suffer from sleep apnea. The condition is common in overweight patients that have larger neck circumferences. Losing weight can significantly reduce the pressure on your airway and improve the flow of air as you breathe at night. The most important aspect of dealing with sleep apnea is understanding exactly what it is. Unlike simple snoring, it is when a sleeper stop's breathing for a short period of time while he is sleeping. If your sleep partner tells you that sometimes you stop breathing, there is a good chance you have apnea. If simple changes in your lifestyle, such as regular sleep hours and losing weight, have not eliminated your sleep apnea episodes, it is time to consult with a sleep specialist. The specific causes of your sleep apnea can be evaluated, and an individual treatment plan can be designed for you. If you are concerned that you may suffer from sleep apnea, it is important to be diagnosed right away. This way, you can start getting the treatment you need as quickly as possible. The advice you have read in this article can help you find the relief you need from this troublesome condition. viagrasansordonnancefr.com
