Slain Police Officer’s Wife, Family Seeks Justice

Wife of one of the slain police officer in Taraba, Mrs Olubunmi Ediare, has called for justice to be done on the death of her husband.

She made the call while addressing the media in Abuja.

According to her, “What I want the federal government to do is to give us justice. I want justice from the federal government. I want justice to be served to the fullest.”

Also, another family member of one of the policemen killed, called on the federal government to ensure that the killers of the policemen are brought to book.

Andrew Ediare, while speaking for the family, said the Ediare family is urging the federal government to ensure that justice is done and say no to any conspiracy to sweep the matter under the carpet by government.

“If the law fails to take its course, it means it is a conspiracy and anything short of this is unacceptable. Inspector Mark Ediare, my late younger brother and others were on active duty and they swore to protect this country.

“His wife is now a widow, his daughter fatherless and the family is grieving, shattered by this inglorious act. This is an outrage”, he said.

Ediare further said: “we therefore demand that the culprits be brought to justice and that international bodies should get involved. Nothing will be swept under the carpet. We demand justice, whoever the perpetrators may be we want them to go to the full extent of the laws of the land.

“If the law fails to do the needful, we will resolve that it is an act of conspiracy. That must not happen”.

He said the family was not seeking compensation from any quarters but justice.

“I do not want compensation. I did not say I want compensation. I want justice to be served.”
