Gov Wike Order FG To Provide Invaders Of Mary Odili’s House Within 48 Hours

Addressing a press conference along with Rivers State Leaders of Thought at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja, Governor Wike said series of events had shown that the Odili family is being targeted, just as he alleged that Friday’s invasion of the residence of Justice Odili by security agents was an assassination attempt.

Gov Wike, on Sunday gave the Federal Government 48 hours to unveil the invaders of Justice Mary Odili’s house.

Since the person who made a complaint against her residence and the personnel who went there are known, government had no reason not to take action against them”, he said

According to him; it’s not enough for government agencies to claim ignorance of the invasion, he insisted that government must take action against all those involved.

It was not a mere coincidence that after participating in the Bayelsa State election panel, some people entered Justice Odili’s house. He noted that her husband and former Rivers governor, Chief Peter Odili’s passport was seized on his return from abroad, followed by Friday’s invasion of her Abuja residence. 
He said if the Federal Government says it is not involved in the invasion, it must take steps to convince the people that it has no hand in it. 

Also, the House of Representatives Committee on Judiciary calls for a discreet investigation to unravel the persons behind this ignoble act, which is capable of straining the existing relationship between the judiciary and the executive arms of our democratic government.” 
The committee, while condemning in totality such ignoble action, pledged to every effort at ensuring the sanctity of the nation’s judiciary and assured its continuous support to the independence of the nation’s judiciary. 

”It is mind-boggling that in the dusk of 29 October 2021, the judiciary was once again exposed to public opprobrium due to the uncanny manner in which the residence of the Honourable Justice Mary Peter-Odili of the Supreme Court of Nigeria was invaded by law enforcement officials purportedly on an on an assignment to execute a search warrant issued by a magistrate.
