In the petition, family lawyer Kehinde Bamiwola noted that Mr. Gene had just given birth to a baby before he went missing, causing pain to his family.

Part of the petition reads as follows:

“Trespassing on land is outside the jurisdictional powers of the Nigerian police, unless the police are tasked with executing a valid judgment of a competent court.

“The divisional police officer did not say whether CP Emmanuel Gene is dead or alive. This is the most confusing and traumatic aspect of the whole issue since December 2020.”

The family further stated that Mr. Gene was not kidnapped by land grabbers, as police said, “but disappeared during an illegal operation authorized by the departmental police officer”.
