Some other police officers were also asked to proceed on a course.
The Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, on Monday ordered the redeployment of 14 Commissioners of Police to different commands and formations leaving out the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu.
Mr. Mbu has been accused of partisanship in the Rivers state crises with the state governor, Rotimi Amaechi, and other governors calling for his redeployment; a call the police hierarchy seem to have dismissed.
In a statement signed by the Deputy Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, the police boss said the new postings are in line with Mr. Abubakar’s efforts to the Nigerian Police for greater efficiency and performance in its fight against crime.
Mr. Mba also stated that the affected police commissioners have been urged to vigorously step up their fight against all forms of criminality in their new commands.
They were enjoined to leverage on the cordial relationship among sister security agencies in their respective beats, to ensure that criminal activities are reduced to the barest minimum.
They have also been charged to ensure that officers and men under their supervision are mindful of the rights of the citizenry, while cultivating the trust and confidence of the public in the discharge of their statutory responsibilities as the postings are with immediate effect.
