ODOK: How Homeland Security Director Raphael Odu, Lover Orchestrated Attack

In Breaking News, Crime, Reports

By Ushang Ewa

Mr. Raphael Odu, a director in the newly created Homeland Security department of the Cross River State Government has been arrested in connection with the stabbing of suspended UNICAL Don, Mr. Joseph Odok.

CrossRiverWatch has confirmed that Mr. Odu who is in Police custody is a lover to the girl who allegedly made the call that brought the three guys that attacked Mr. Odok at Zanzee bar located off parliamentary road in Calabar, the Cross River State capital on Monday.

The Police picked Mr. Odu up a few days ago after retrieving his lines from the unnamed lady’s call logs which seemed to match the time reviewed.

A top security official in the state reliably informed CrossRiverWatch that the girl is from Yala local government area of northern Cross River State and is Mr. Odu’s lover.

She placed a call to Mr. Odu who then called the three guys that attacked Mr. Odok.

“She is a girlfriend to Odu and she actually had a visa deal with Odok and Odok defrauded her.

“When she saw Odok that day at Zanzee, she called her boyfriend who is Odu.

“That is the call you say the receptionist at Zanzee bar told you the girl made that brought three guys who attacked Odok.

“She called her boyfriend and just after that call, three guys came.

“There is a need to establish whether his call influenced the arrival of the three guys who perpetrated this crime,” said the security official.

CrossRiverWatch had reported that the unnamed lady is in Police custody and is being kept to facilitate the arrest of the other assailants while the narrative of apologists and supporters of Mr. Odok has kept changing on a daily basis.

Comments on social media monitored by CrossRiverWatch after the disclosure of the arrest of Mr. Odu have switched back to state actors masterminding the attack as Mr. Odok is viewed as a vociferous critic of the current administration.

And, this corroborates Nigeria’s secret Police; the DSS and the Police command in Cross River State statements that Mr. Odok’s attack was not an assassination as earlier speculated by apologists and supporters but, a consequence for his involvement in fraudulent activities.

This is the second time in the year that Mr. Odok has challenges and was in the hands of security agencies after his arrest and detention for allegedly being in possession of illegal firearms and his suspension as a lecturer in the University of Calabar.
