A former minister of state for education, Kenneth Gbagi, has been declared wanted by the Delta state police command over an alleged assault and inhuman treatment meted out on some staff of his hotel.
The Sun reported Gbagi who own the hotel located at Effurun area of Delta state, Signatious Hotel, was declared wanted on Wednesday, September 30.
The command’s spokesman, DSP Onome Onovwakpoyeya, explained in a statement the former minister was declared wanted after failing to honour the police’s invitation.
According to Onovwakpoyeya, the commissioner of police had on Friday, September 25, invited Gbagi through the Area Commander Warri and DPO Ebrumede Division for questioning concerning the incident.
The former minister, however, did not honour the invitation but reportedly gave excuses and resorted to disparaging and maligning the person of the police commissioner.
The statement read partly:
“Therefore members of the public with useful information as to his whereabouts are advised to go to the nearest Police Station to report for his immediate arrest and handing him over to the Command for thorough investigation/prosecution.”
