Coup to unseat ANLCA’s President hits brick wall

* As NECOM concludes plan to petition IG of Police over illegal invasion

Details emerged that the coup plotted by expelled members of
the Association of Nigerian Licensed Customs Agents (ANLCA) to unseat the National President, Hon Prince Tony Iju Nwabunike and his Executives hits the brick wall, as the leadership of the Association has concluded plans to petition the Inspector General of Police on alleged involvement of his men in illegal invasion of ANLCA’s National Secretariat.

ANLCA’s NECOM also alleged that men of Nigerian Police from Zone 2 division provided security for expelled members of the association to attack innocent workers found at ANLCA’s Secretariat during the illegal invasion of the premises.

Recall that this latest sealing of ANLCA’s Secretariat is the second time Police men from Zone 2 allegedly invaded and sealed the Secretariat without a valid Court order.
Last year – 2021, some Police men from the same zone sealed ANLCA’s Secretariat following invitation from the same expelled members.

Speaking, the National Secretary of ANLCA, Alhaji Babatunde Mukaila, explained that the Police acted illegally.

According to him, the expelled members misled the Police, as they deceitfully presented a Court order obtained since 2019, which was challenged in Court after 14 days.

He said that their intention was to unseat Hon Tony Iju Nwabunike, a serving President, who has the Constitutional right to remain in office until his tenure expires at the appropriate time.

Alhaji Mukaila frowned at the involvement of Nigerian Police on what he described as illegality and attack on innocent citizens, stressing that aside the fact that there was no valid Court order, there was no notice from the Police either.

He pointed out;
“The sealing of ANLCA’s National secretariat was carried out without any notice from the Police.
Attack on the Secretariat was carried out when members of the NECOM where at the National Assembly on invitation of the Chairman, House of Representatives Committee on Customs & Excise. The NECOM members were at the Senate to speak on the new policy of e-invoicing introduced by the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).”

His words :
“The hoodlums were allegedly arranged
by expelled and Court sacked acclaimed board chairman, Taiwo Mustapha with the backing of the Police.

“They forcefully gained access to ANLCA’s Secretariat, as they
burgled the main entrance, even as they man-handled workers, as well as Corp members on duty.”
