Lagos State Police Parade the Dogs that Attacked 4-year-old Abraham [Photo]

The two dogs that damage the skull of four-year-old Abraham Omonigho in Igando area of Lagos State have been paraded by the Lagos State Police Command.

Earlier on today, little Abraham who is now recovering from the savage attack had said he would never come home until the dogs are killed.

But according a new report on PUNCH, the Lagos State Police Command says only a court of law could decide whether the two dogs would be killed or not.

The command, which paraded the two dogs at its headquarters in Ikeja, Lagos State on Tuesday,
added that the dogs had been examined and been found to be disease-free.

The Commissioner of Police, Cornelius Aderanti, said it was important to parade the dogs so that the public would rest assured that the dogs were still in police custody, and had not been released as being rumoured. He said:

 “We have brought the dogs out so that the public would know that they are still in police custody. They have been examined and show no negative trait. It is only the court that will decide what happens to them. The police cannot decide to kill the dogs.” 

A veterinary officer of the police, Yahaya Usman, also told journalists that the medical record showed the dogs had neither rabies nor other dog-related diseases. He said:

“Initially, we quarantined the dogs, and wanted to find out whether the dogs had any disease or not. That was the first step taken by the police. The dogs were under our watch for a period of weeks. So far, they have not shown any negative trait. The medical history shows that they don’t have rabies or the Ebola Virus Disease. The dogs are with us, and only the court will determine what happens to the dogs.”

Meawhile, the victim’s father, Mr. Odiah Abraham, told our correspondent the dog had three days to the incident chased a neighbor and his wife had warned the dog owner, but he refused.
He said:

“Three days to the incident, a woman who lives in the neighbourhood had gone downstairs to spread her clothes on the line. She had left and was approaching her room when the dogs ran out of their cage and pursued her. She was just lucky that she was close to her room, if not they would have bitten her. She ran in and shut the door against her. The dogs stood at the gate for some time and when they saw she did not open, they ran back to their cage. My wife met Stanley (Wesley) and told him to do something about the dogs, as there were little children within the neighbourhood, but he just ignored the warning.”

PUNCH Metro learnt that Wesley was the brother of the owner of the house and had been the one collecting the rent from the tenants.

Ebola Scare: West African Travelers Limited To 5 Airports In The US

According to  Sahara Reporters.....

 The US Department of Homeland Security has announced that arrivals from West African countries experiencing the Ebola outbreak will have to use one of five airports specially-equipped to screen for the Ebola disease.

Only travelers from Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Guinea will be affected by the new measures that the US government has put in place to help prevent travelers from bringing the Ebola virus into the US.

Beginning on Wednesday, travelers arriving from Ebola-affected African countries will have to use New York’s John F. Kennedy, Washington's Dulles, Chicago's O'Hare, New Jersey's Newark airport or Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson airports.

The new restrictions on West African travelers are unlikely to be seen as sufficient by many in the US, who have publicly called for total bans on arrivals from West Africa during the current Ebola crisis.

The 4-year-old boy, Omonigho Abraham who was attacked by two dogs in the Igando area of Lagos State some weeks back has said he would not return home until the dogs were dead.

Omonigho who is in the Burns and Plastic Ward of the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, Ikeja, and still had a bandaged head said the police and the government must ensure that the dogs that ate his scalp and almost took his life are killed, Punch reports.

Recounting what happened, the little boy said, on that fateful day, he was playing with his brothers when the dogs attacked him in their flat.

He said: I could not jump, so they bit my head. I pinched Gaddafi (one of the dogs), but he did not leave me. It was when I heard the voice of my mummy that I woke up. I want them to kill the dogs; I won’t return home.”

The father of the victim, Mr Odiah berated the police for failing to rescue his son and later claimed to have been the ones who saved him.

He also accused the police of attempting to muddle up the investigations, saying they asked him to order the release of the dogs to the owner or take the dogs to his house.

He added that since the incident came up in the news, he has been receiving support from Nigerians.
According to him, the Governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, had sent his personal medical doctor, one Dr.Ufoma, who discussed the possibility of the victim being flown abroad for further treatment.

The Lagos State Government, Ministry of Health, was also said to have refunded money spent on his treatment, and promised to pay all other expenses.
The Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Kenneth Nwosu, who paid a visit to Omonigho at LASUTH, promised to investigate the case.

He said: “I was there on Friday as part of our efforts to show concern. I told the mother that in the midst of all this, what is more important is the life of the boy. If anybody has acted in an unprofessional way, we will investigate and take the appropriate action.”

He added that the dogs were undergoing tests and the results would be made public.
