A crack team of po­licemen from the Inspector-Gener­al of Police (IGP), Mr. Id­ris Ibrahim, have arrested over 30 suspected thugs in­volved in the demolition of over N200 million proper­ty allegedly owned by the Group Chairman of Bontus Oil and Gas Company, Chief Bonaventure Uche Okafor.
Those being arrested were said to have links with Chief Cletus Ibeto, who has been invited by the IGP to explain his alleged role the demoli­tion of the property.
An official of Bontus Oil and Gas on kilometre 6, Onitsha/Owerri Road, Obosi, Anambra State, the site of the disputed property previously owned by Ama­zu Motors Nigeria Ltd, said the IGP’s team have arrested Ochanja thugs who invaded and took possession of the property on the alleged or­der of Chief Ibeto.
Ibeto did not respond to the Whatsapp, text messag­es and phone calls from The AUTHORITY on the mat­ter.
The Anambra State Po­lice Public Relations Officer, Nkiru Nwode, also did not pick calls made to his mobile on the issue but a source in her office confirmed that ac­tion had been taken on the matter.
Mr. Philip Ogbonna of Bontus Oil and Gas had in press statement sent to The AUTHORITY on Wednes­day, claimed that: “The Chairman of Ibeto Group of Companies, Chief Cletus Ibeto is in a trespass mess on a property located at Obosi in Anambra State.
“The questions begging for answer now are whether Chief Cletus Ibeto is a mem­ber of the Board of Directors of Amazu Motors? Wheth­er he is a member of Ama­zu family of Otolo Nnew? It is even confusing whether Chief Cletus Ibeto is fighting Dangote indirectly through Bontus Oil or whether he has a business interest in the property?” - The Authority
