How Police insensitivity aided Steve Nwosu’s wife’s kidnapp

Dereliction of duties by policemen in Area E Division, Amuwo Odofin, enabled the kidnappers to take away Mrs Nwosu on Monday morning.
The Amuwo Odofin Police Division was called severally but its operatives refused to respond on grounds that the Nwosus’ street is under Okota Police Division.toyin-nwosu-and-steve
Despite being the closest police station to the street, Festac Policemen, The Nation learnt, were contacted about 1:30am, but they did not arrive till about 3am.
A source, who spoke in confidence, said Nwosu also tried to reach a senior police officer in Festac, but the officer did not pick his call.
“Oga called police before the armed men broke the window and entered the house. He called them many times, but they did not come, the Festac policemen kept arguing that the street is under Okota. He was told to call Okota police station. Are the police supposed to argue over jurisdiction when someone’s life is at stake?
“He called their oga many times but he did not pick and so, when the kidnappers entered the house, he surrendered.
“It was after they have robbed and kidnapped his wife that the police came. If they had come early, maybe things would have turned out differently,” he said
