I’m happy with the police ‘orderly room’ trial says sexually assaulted Kachi

A lady, Amadi Onyekachi, who was allegedly molested by an official of Federal Special Anti-robbery Squad says she is happy with the Police “Orderly Room” trial.

Onyekachi told the News Agency of Nigeria on Thursday in Ilorin that she was only disappointed that the officer denied ever meeting her until she brought the matter before the Kwara Police Command.

“The officer, who molested me lied at the trial, so nothing has really changed.

“On the scale of 70 percent, I think I am satisfied with the organisation of the trial and how it went.

“I don’t know what the end result is going to be yet because he has lied already, so I am not sure yet if I am going to get justice,” she said.

Onyekachi said she was sad because the leader of the patrol team on the day of the incident also denied any contact with her.

Onyekachi had recently on the social media informed the public of what she went through in the hands of some police officers, who she claimed, harassed her sexually during a stop and search operation.

A representative of the International Federation of Women Lawyers, Ronke Adeyemi, who accompanied the victim to the trial, also told NAN that she was happy with the process of the trial.

Adeyemi said she was impressed by the way the police had been handling the matter even before the commencement of the trial on Tuesday, Oct. 24.

“The man, who presided over the trial, is quite competent and full of experience of such matter.

“The man was very fair to both sides; he allowed the victim and officer to question themselves where necessary.

“I am confident she will get justice because of the determination of the senior police officers in the state,” she said.

Adeyemi said that what was uppermost in the mind of the victim is that elements like the one who harassed her should not be in the system anymore.

“The officer, who molested her, should not be allowed to remain in the force.

“People like him are dangerous and he could have done worse things that day.

“For me and FIDA, we should not have such wicked fellows in the Nigeria police force again, ” Adeyemi said.

NAN reports that the trial, which commenced on Tuesday, Oct. 24, has been adjourned until Tuesday, Oct. 31.

Are you over 100? Then you've got a better chance of living even longer!

It’s considered an inescapable fact of life: the older you get, the more likely death becomes. But a new research conucted in Germany disproves of that suggestinh that the chances of dying may level off – at least for those who make it to 105 years old.
The study found that death rates, which rise exponentially in adulthood, begin to decelerate after 80 years old and appear to eventually plateau, or even decline slightly, after the age of 105. By that point, the chances of passing away in a given year are approximately 50-50.“It’s the equivalent of tossing a coin each year,” said Prof Jim Vaupel, a specialist in ageing at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research in Germany and one of the authors. The findings add fuel to an unusually hostile debate between two camps of scientists, who are locked in an escalating dispute about whether humans are approaching their upper limit in terms of lifespan.The latest paper, from Vaupel’s team who argue there is no evidence of a looming lo…
