The invasion of Achina, Aguata Local Government Area of Anambra State by the operatives of the Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) has allegedly left a 98-year-old woman with injuries necessitating hospitalisation.

Her ordeal started when the team of Police officers stormed the house of a Japan-based businessman, Emeka Okpalaku, in Achina on the invitation of one Esther Nzekwe.

The duo, who are from the same local government area, are said to have a child together.

It was gathered that trouble started after the birth of their child when Okpalaku returned to his base, abandoning mother and child to their fate with his nonagenarian mother, Cecilia Okpalaku.

It was however learnt that Emeka Okpalaku visits home occasionally to see his daughter and wife but was disappointed to learn during one of his visits that his wife had aborted the pregnancy for their second child.

Esther’s inability to explain reason for aborting the pregnancy subsequently led to her being thrown out of the house.

With a threat that he will end the marriage, Emeka allegedly handed over the child to his mother.

In a show if anger, his embattled wife stormed the husband’s place in Achina with some SARS operatives to forcefully take away their daughter.

It was alleged that the SARS operatives assaulted the 98-year-old woman in the process, as she tried to prevent them from taking away the child.

Sources said that the aged woman is currently hospitalised following injuries allegedly inflicted on her by the operatives.

In his reaction, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Haruna Mohammed, however described the allegation as false.

He said: “They were never formally married. The real fact at issue is that the man confiscated the credentials of his fiancée in order to deny her opportunity of reporting for National Youth Service at the camping site.

“The deadline for reporting to the NYSC Camp was on August 20 with Emeka preparing to travel back to his Japan base.

“The complainant’s lawyer sent in a petition to Anambra Police Command. The Commissioner, then, ordered discreet investigation into the matter.

“As soon as the suspect sighted the Police, he escaped through a window in the house. The police, then, used power of ingress to gain access into the house.”

Mohammed said the police had since opened investigations on the matter.
