BY CHIDI NKWOPARA, OWERRI.
Imo State Police Command says it has commenced serious investigations to establish the real owners of the 10 exotic cars impounded from the premises of Ezuma Private Hospital, Owerri.
The State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mohammed Musa Katsina, who disclosed this during an exclusive chat with Vanguard in Owerri, also said that “up till this very moment of this interview, the so called medical doctor (Dr. James Ezuma) has failed to provide a single document, even if it is hand written, for any of the vehicles”.
The Imo police boss said that the man has rather been incoherent with where he procured the vehicles, who brought them and when.
“Up till today, he has not been able to say anything tangible. He has not been able to give us the required answers to the questions!
That is why I have set up a team to specifically investigate the status of the 10 exotic vehicles. We are going to contact our partners at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, for them to give us details of the vehicles”, Katsina said.
While saying that the Command has so far taken the engine and chassis numbers and all other material elements with regard to these vehicles, Mr. Katsina also explained that he whole idea is for the police to know at the end of the day, how the vehicles came to be in his possession.
Answering a question on where Ezuma is, Mr. Katsina said he is in police custody, adding the legal department of the Command has started compiling the man’s dossier.
“We have it on record that sometime in 2009, he was arrested for incarcerating about 30 pregnant teenagers from one his dens in Abia State, stressing hat the matter is pending at the Federal High Court”, Katsina said.
Continuing, the fiery police boss recalled the same man was arrested in Imo over gun running when the police recovered three prohibited firearms from him. He said “the matter is also in court”, adding that the current rescue of 16 pregnant teenagers and loss of a baby belonging to one of the girls, is another dimension to his sordid record.
