Speaking with SaharaReporters, the spouse, Ngozi, corroborated Ebenezer’s account stating that her husband was actually an officer in Rivers State however had been deployed on particular duties to Borno State since January 2021.

According to her, the officer was returning to his household in Edo after a number of months when he was ‘nabbed’ by the troopers who suspected him to be a pretend officer.

She stated, “Though I’m in no position to give a verdict on the authenticity of the ammunition and grenade allegedly seen in his bag, I can confidently debunk the claim made by the army squad at the checkpoint along Maiduguri/Damaturu Expressway, that he’s not a genuine policeman.

“I would want to correct the impression that he’s a suspected fake policeman. Prior to his arrest, he had been complaining to me that some of his colleagues had animosity towards him, for no just reason. This makes me feel that he could have been set up with these items (ammunition and the grenade) placed in his bag unknowingly to him.

“Since his arrest, neither I nor his parents have been able to reach him. And since it’s already in the media that he’s a fake policeman, without any effort to set the records straight, I fear he would be treated as such.

“I have not set my eyes on my husband since January which was when he left Port-Harcourt to Maiduguri in Borno State on special duty. He was returning home to me and his children when he was arrested. He was coming to us in Edo State. 

“He should be handed over to the police and granted access to communicate with his family and stop being treated like a common criminal. He has suffered a lot already just for him to come home and rest.

“I don’t know what they have done to him, I don’t know if my husband is still alive or not. He has not killed anyone, he is a suspect. He should be granted access to his family at least. To even feed is a problem for us.”
