Nigeria Police Detain Alhaji Usman Adamu In Connection With Suspicious Death Of Joy Odama

Published

on

The police in Abuja have detained one Usman Adamu as a
suspect in the death of a young woman, Joy Odama. According to a
statement released earlier today by a police spokesman Jimoh Moshood,
Mr. Adamu is being detained as the police continue their investigation
into the circumstances surrounding Ms. Odama’s death in the suspect’s
apartment in Abuja. 

Apart from Ms. Odama’s death, another young woman in the suspect’s
residence, Victoria Ezekiel, fell gravely ill but was resuscitated at
the Federal Medical Center in Jabi, Abuja.

The police spokesman disclosed that the Mr. Adamu’s investigation for
culpable homicide began after a law firm representing Philomena Odama,
the mother of the deceased young woman, wrote a petition to the
Inspector General of Police. In the petition, dated January 5, 2017,
Mrs. Odama urged the IGP to order an investigation into her daughter’s
death in Mr. Adamu’s apartment.

The late Joy Odama was a second-year student of Mass Communication at
Cross River State University of Technology. The police statement said
she “died mysteriously in the flat of Alhaji Usman Adamu located at Ibro
Quarters, Karmo, Abuja on 21/12/2016.”

According to the police report, on December 18, 2016, one Elizabeth
Okpata James asked Ms. Joy Odama to go with her to Mr. Adamu’s house
along with another woman, Martha Hassan. The report added that Mrs.
Philomena Odama later met Mr. Adamu “who promised to offer her a job
with the

Nigeria Security and Civil Defense Corps (NSCDC).” On December 20,
2016, the suspect requested that Joy Odama come to his apartment to help
take care of his ill house-help while he sought the services of a
medical doctor.

However, when Joy Odama’s mother called the
suspect the next day to ask after her daughter, Mr. Adamu reportedly
pretended not to know the young woman. The next day, the distraught
mother was invited to Karmo Police Division where she was informed that
her daughter, Joy Odama, and Victoria Ezekiel had become unconscious the
previous day in Mr. Adamu’s home and were rushed to the Federal Medical
Center, Jabi where her daughter Joy Odama was pronounced dead but the
other young woman regained consciousness.

The police said the
hospital placed Ms. Ezekiel on oxygen and treated her for conditions
that included carbon monoxide poisoning, dehydration, vomiting, and
headaches.

The police spokesman disclosed that two autopsies were done at the
National Hospital, Abuja to ascertain Ms. Joy Odama’s cause of death. He
said the first autopsy, done by Dr. Jibrin Paul, was inconclusive, but
the second, carried out by Dr. Wilson Akhinwu, determined that the cause
of death was “carbon monoxide poisoning from generator fumes”
aggravated by “a pre-existing cardiomyopathy.” The autopsy ruled out the
presence of cocaine in the deceased.

The police spokesman revealed that Mr. Adamu would remain in
detention, adding that the case file would be sent to Federal Director
of

Public Prosecutions for legal advice and further action.

The police urged the family of Ms. Odama to remain patient, promising
that police investigators would do a thorough job and ensure that
justice was done in the case.

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

on

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
