Hon Mutu Nicholas Ebomo


LAGOS JULY 5TH (URHOBOTODAY) News trickling in has it that a member representing Bomadi/Patani Federal Constituency in the National Assembly, Hon Nicholas Mutu and some others are to be charged in court for acts of terrorism, attempted kidnap and murder of one Mr. Moses Amatu, Kenneth Mezieh and others in Bomadi, headquarters of Bomadi LGA, Delta State.
According to a high ranking source in the Delta State House of Assembly (DTHA), a petition is already before the Delta state Police Commissioner, Mr. Ikechukwu Aduba signed by Barrister Kelechi Nnadi, counsel to the petitioners.
The petition reads in part, “ That Nicholas Mutu on the 26th of last month, (June) brought in ex-militants numbering over 200 to kidnap and murder Mr. Moses Amatu, Kenneth Mezieh and other members of the Bomadi Local Government Area Federated Youth Movement for allegedly planning to protest against his fifth term agenda on the 27th of July 2013. The crime was allegedly committed when the wife of the Delta state Governor, Deaconess Roli Uduaghan and her team was expected to organize a prayer program tagged “Solemn Assembly” in Bomadi town.
The petition stated that it took the combined efforts of the men of the Department of the State Security and the Joint Task Force in the Area to rescue them after they were brutally assaulted by the heavily armed gang hired by the Federal Lawmaker.
“Consequently, the petitioners in their prayers are urging the State Police Command to amongst others, arrest Hon. Mutu and his terrorist gang, investigate the issue and initiate criminal prosecution against the legislator and his co-conspirators to serve as a deterrent to others.”
As at the time of filling in this report, more details of the act are still coming in but it was gathered that, Mutu was earlier arrested and released on self recognition.
In the same vein, political pundits in the area has it that, the incident was much related to the 2015 aspiration of both Hon. Basil Ganagana and Hon Mutu for the same membership position at the National Assembly.
All attempts to reach the duo on their comments on the issued proved abortive as the both refused reply SMS sent to them as well as answering series of calls on their mobile lines.
