A former aide to Delta State Governor, Chief Friday Eluro of Boji-Boji Owa in Ika North-east Local Government Area, and two others have been charged to court by the State Police Command, following a trending video clip of a woman that was allegedly stripped naked by the suspects. The offensive video has attracted public outrage.

Eluro, who has been reportedly stripped of his chieftaincy title, was said to have more than 20 young men in his compound, “whom he uses for his nefarious activities.”

In the light of the general condemnation that trailed the video clip, a team of police detectives on February 7, swung into action and tracked the main suspect to his compound at Boji-Boji Owa, and arrested him with two other accomplices.

After investigation, the police, on February 18, charged the said Friday Eluro and his two accomplices before an Ashaka Magistrate Court, for “abduction, torture and dehumanising treatment of stripping a woman naked.”

He has since been remanded in prison custody with the two other suspects.

The police said that this is a warning signal to anybody who thinks he/she is above the law, or can take the laws into his /her hand, adding: “The police authority is prepared to deal with any act of crime and criminality by any means legally possible.”

The Delta State Commissioner of Police reassured the public of his commitment to their safety and security at all times.
