The police have detained Iwanger Ifeoma Akaya, the aide-de-camp to the embattled former Kogi State Governor, Mr Yahaya Bello, over allegations of being part of the security aides that obstructed the arrest of the former governor in Abuja.

Akaya was arrested alongside other police officers attached to Bello. They are being detained at the State Criminal Investigation Department in Abuja.

Sources within the Police say their arrests and detention followed an order by the Inspector General of Police, Olukayode Egbetokun, directing their immediate withdrawal from the former governor.

The officers were taken into custody on suspicion of aiding and abetting Bello’s escape from EFCC operatives, who besieged his Abuja home for his arrest on Wednesday.

The operation was part of an ongoing investigation into alleged misconduct and possible breaches of the law by the former governor.

Details surrounding the case remained sketchy, but authorities have stated they were conducting a thorough investigation to determine the extent of the officers’ involvement in the governor’s escape.

The Nigeria Police Force has yet to release an official statement regarding the arrests, but sources indicated that the officers could face charges related to obstruction of justice or conspiracy to hinder a law enforcement operation.
