Nigerians on social media have expressed anger over the alleged unlawful detention and enslavement of a 21-year-old lady, Glory Okolie, who was arrested by operatives of the Intelligence Response Team in Imo State.
PUNCH Metro gathered that Okolie, who was apprehended on June 17, 2021, could be released on Friday following a public outcry generated by her story, which went viral on social media on Wednesday.
She was reportedly apprehended to track down a suspected member of the Eastern Security Network said to be her boyfriend.
Though the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has ordered investigation into the matter, Nigerians on Facebook have faulted the police for their actions.
Facebook user, Mailafiya Abashiya, said, “What a great shameless regime, which results in detaining a woman who committed no criminal offense, while the real murderous terrorists are being given VIP treatments after they’ve wasted precious lives, property. I profusely weep for Nigeria.”
Another user, Jonathan Ofiabodhe, wrote, “The Nigerian security knows the family of these Boko haram and bandits but did nothing.”
“That is rubbish. Why should she be detained and for what reason? It’s like Nigerian police are losing nuts,” Onungwa Kennedy lambasted.
Chukwudi Caroline asked, “How many family, and girlfriends of Boko Haram have Nigerian apprehended since their existence? This country is really against one tribe.”
Referring to the police, Emeka Okeke, said, “The foolish unethical things done by these vermin is unbelievable. Which law are they enforcing? (Punch)
