Icheoku says at no other time has the truth been murdered much more by the Nigerian security operatives as was in the press conference addressed by Marilyn Ogar, assistant director public relations of the dreadful Nigerian State Security Services. While addressing a press conference to inform the world on the ongoing investigation into the Abuja independence anniversary celebration bombing, Madam Assistant Director said, "The SSS is a public service and people come here and go out at will. The vehicles used for the bombing were wired for detonation at Charles Okah’s house in Port Harcourt and driven to Abuja."
Madam Assistant Director also claimed during her press conference that MEND's ambassador plenipotentiary, Charles Tombra Okah has been identified as the alter-ego of ‘Gbomo Jomo,’ and that he uses that alias to send emails on behalf of MEND including those that warned of the impending blasts which later took off the shine from an ill-advise, thoughtless, self-serving and wasteful extravaganza amidst millions of hungry Nigerians. Now a good gum-shoes would have gone a step further to inform the world on how they reached that conclusion - informing the world on the evidential steps taken to arrive at that determination. But no, she was addressing a cowered populace whose journalists have eaten of the truth-forbidden fruit and for brown enveloped transport money, would not waste their time digging deep into a developing story. The assistant director said it and that makes it true; really? There was no identity suggesting the two personalities as the same person; there was no information scooped from a hard-drive somewhere to buttress the assertion; there was no percipient witness who testified as to the dual identities; or was there any false document/s with the alias found in Okah's possession with his picture on it; yet she told the world that the SS has identified Okah as the 'Gbomo Jomo.' Icheoku asks, if it is truly Okah that is Gbomo Jomo, why then does the said Gbomo Jomo still write emails while its body-double Okah is in detention in faraway South Africa; or is he getting access to a computer as was his interview with Al-Jazeera television while in detention? If truly Okah is the Gbomo Jomo, why did another Gbomo Jomo write again just this week alerting Abuja residents of an upcoming bombing of their city? Icheoku strongly believes that political pressure is pushing state security operatives into desperately wanting to solve this problem immediately and in the process, things are being muddled up and rushed through. Just in case, a direct question to Madam Assistant Director, 'how did your agency establish that Okah is the same person as Gbomo Jomo?
