The Nigeria Bar Association, Onueke Branch has cried foul over the murder of Mrs. Amechi Gloria Enyi, wife of Barr. Amechi Shedrack Enyi in Ebonyi state.

In a petition to the Ebonyi State Police Commissioner, CP Aliyu Garba dated 26th November 2021, and signed by Barr. Ikechukwu Njoku, (Bar Leader) and Uche Igba, (Branch Chairman) among others accused the Divisional Police Officer, Central Police Station Abakaliki and the Investigation Officer, (CPS) of conspiracy and murder of Barr. Shedrack’s wife.

The Onueke Branch of the Nigeria Bar Association said that trouble started on the 22nd of November 2021, when Barr. Shedrack Enyi’s wife, Mrs. Amechi Gloria was brutally stabbed to death in her residence at No. 1 Enyi Close Nkaliki while her husband was being unlawfully detained at the Central Police Station Abakaliki.

The group accused Inspector. Emmanuel Lawrence and his wife of conspiring with the Divisional Police Officer, CPS. Ikechukwu Okoro and the Investigation Officer Geoffrey Aghachi to unlawfully detain Barr Enyi.

According to the petition, the NBA said that Mrs. Lawrence converted part of her rented apartment to mini poultry house, an act which constituted unbearable nuisance against other tenants in the premises.

“Acting on the persistent complaint raised against the said nuisance, Barr. Enyi who manages the property appealed to her to dismantle the poultry house made of wood and cease further rearing of the chicken in the premises”.

“Mrs. Lawrence flagrantly refused to yield to the entreaties made by Barr. Enyi which prompted him with the assistance of the caretaker of the premises and other tenants to remove the poultry wooden house”.

They alleged that Mr. Lawrence and wife started unleashing threat against the Barr. Shedrack who was later arrested and detained at CPS, following complaint made at the police station by Mr. Lawrence and wife.

NBA expressed the regret that Barr. Enyi was later granted bail and was subsequently rearrested again after he called for the transfer of the case to the police headquarters.

According to them, “our colleague again was thrown into cell on the orders of the said DPO of Central Police Station on Saturday 20th November 2021 and remained incarcerated till Monday morning, 22nd November 2021”.

The group further stated that their colleague was released after his wife who was full was wickedly and brutally murdered and her corpse deposited at the mortuary.
