I am a consultant to AGF Abubakar Malami – Man who led raid of Mary Odili’s home alleges

Lawrence Ajojo, the man accused of leading the raid on the residence of Justice Mary Odili, has alleged that he is a consultant to the Attorney-General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami, SAN.

Ajojo who was accused of claiming to be a Chief Superintendent of Police, made the allegation when paraded by the police in Abuja on Thursday November 11. 

According to Vanguard, when interviewed by reporters after being paraded, Ajojo said Malami did not authorise the raid. He said; 

“I am not an officer of the Nigeria Police but a consultant for the AGF; he did not send us to raid Mrs Odili’s house.”

Malami has denied the allegation.

Reacting to the claim by the suspect, Malami described Ajojo as a “drowning man scavenging for a dying partner”.

In the statement released by his media aide Umar Gwandu, the suspect was also asked to “present documents of engagements where he worked as a consultant to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, whether in past or now.”

The statement read:

“The attention of the Office of the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice has been drawn to a confession of a suspect during interrogation in the investigation of the recent invasion of the residencecof the highly respected Justice of the Supreme Court; Justice  Mary Peter Odili.

“With all the competent, high level professionals and capable human resources  available at the disposal of the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, it only takes the imagination of the evil minds to assume or think that the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice will descend  so low to engaging a quack or fake police officer to serve as his consultant.

“We are happy to note that investigation has commenced to unravel the circumstances and personalities behind the invasion and sponsored campaign of calumny against the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice.

“It is our desire and we hope that the investigation would also disclose those after the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, those dragging his personality, his name and  his exalted office in the dirty politics of disrepute. This is an orchestrated attempt to stir unnecessary controversies and Public apprehension.

“We asked the suspect to present documents of engagements where he worked as a consultant to the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, whether in past or now.

“Consultant for what? Which activity or assignment? When was he engaged? What were the terms of references for the alleged consultancy service? When was he engaged? Where was he engaged? Which worked has he executed for the Honourable Attorney General of the Federation and the Ministry of Justice? For what duration? And for how much?”
