Nigeria Police Force has advised Chioma Egodi to cease the continual jumping bail and turn up in court, as a neutral arbiter, to determine the matter, and allow justice to take its course.

They reaffirmed their commitment to upholding the rule of law in the Erisco Tomato matter, as the involvement of Mrs. Chioma  warrants scrutiny as she stands accused of violating some salient parts of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) Act, 2015 as preliminary investigations conducted have unearthed compelling evidence indicating her alleged role in the violation of extant laws, particularly those related to the proper use of the cyber space.

According to the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, at this juncture, it is imperative to caution members of the public against spreading misinformation and attempting to manipulate public sentiment.

The law operates impartially, and any attempt to subvert it will be met with the full force of legal action.

The recent developments in the case are deeply worrisome, particularly the use of crowd funding as a means to influence legal proceedings.

Such actions undermine the integrity of the justice system and threaten the principles of fairness and accountability as they are highly inimical to the existence of the rule of law.

This case in point underscores the necessity of enforcing existing legislation, including the Cybercrime Act, to counteract the current spate of violations of the Act and spread of misinformation and disinformation on social media.

It is vital to reaffirm that the Nigeria Police is poised to enforce all laws without fear, favour, or sentiments in its commitment to ensuring justice and transparency for all citizens.

The police admonished Nigerians, most especially social media influencers, to resort to embracing the rule of law, and shun all display of sentiments in the case, and in many others as the police will not be deterred by the antics of certain individuals to pervert justice in any way.
