In what may be seen as an attempt to scuttle justice in the case involving Derrick Maurice and five others, who were extra judicially killed by 14 dismissed policemen of the Special Anti Robbery Squad(SARS), reports available to our medium proves that, there are clandestine moves by top politicians in Cross River State to bring the case to an abrupt end, through the back door.
This according to their orchestrated plan is the pressure currently mounted on the judge, Justice Ogbojo Ogar to compromise in the case.
Recollect that, the same judge had granted the accused persons bail, who were are standing trial for a murder case, which is a capital offence.
Investigation on the murder case shows that, the dismissed policemen were recently sited at the Zone 6 headquarters of the Nigerian Police, trying to induce the Police IPO who is currently with evidence to nail, them, pleading with the IPO to swing the report to their favour.
Not done with this, the 14 dismissed policemen we can authoritatively report have offered cash to the IPO to scuttle evidence against them, but he keeps turning them down.
It is yet to be ascertained, if the police IPO have yielded to their demands, as we keep a further check.
Further investigation on the case, proves that, the 14 dismissed policemen, are currently agitating for their reinstatement into the police, despite facing trial for murder.
As at the time of this report, some of them were given assurances of reinstatement by the same politicians trying to induce the judge, as others have been seen with application letters for reinstatement.
There are also reports squealed to Secret Reporters, that the dismissed policemen have been privy to the outcome of the court ruling, hence, the lobby for their reinstatement has commenced, with the elder brother to one of the dismissed policemen, Justice Ashwu Ewa, leading the race for the lobby of bringing the deadly men back to the force.
