BREAKING: Court Grants Bail To ‘ESN Operative’s Girlfriend’, Detained Over 70 Days By IRT






(AFRICAN EXAMINER) – A High Court  in  Abuja has  ordered the Nigeria Police Force to charge Gloria Okolie to court on or before August 31, 2021, or be granted bail in the sum of N2m and Level 12 officer as bond and surety.

The  ruling is coming after  70 days of detaining Okolie by  Intelligence Response Team  for an alleged link to the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra’s Eastern Security Network.

Human rights activist and Director-General, Behind Bars Initiative, Harrison Gwamnishu, confirmed the development  on Friday.

Gwamnishu and other activists had dragged the police to court to respect the fundamental rights to release  the 22-year-old detainee.

African Examiner had reported how the young lady was reportedly detained at the IRT office in Owerri, Imo State before she was transferred to Abuja.



Gloria’s uncle, Christian Okolie, had said the policemen extorted N280,000 in bribes so far and demanded an additional N100,000 to free the young lady.

Her family had also alleged that she was used as a maid and sex slave by the officers while in custody.

But the Police in a statement had said, “Investigations by the police team revealed that Gloria Okolie takes advantage of her gender and seemingly innocuous looks as camouflage to carry out espionage against military and police targets on behalf of IPOB/ESN.”
