Nigeria Police redeploy controversial AIG Mbu, 27 others

Joseph Mbu

The Nigerian Police have redeployed the controversial Assistant Inspector General of Police, Joseph Mbu, alongside 27 other AIGs. Mr. Mbu was posted to Zone 2, Lagos. The order was given by the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, on Tuesday.

Mr. Mbu, who was in charge of Police Zone 7, which covers Abuja and the neighbouring states, was first the Rivers State Police Commissioner until February, 2014, when he was posted to the Federal Capital Territory, FCT.

In Abuja, he was promoted to the rank of AIG in August, 2014.

Mr. Mbu left Rivers State after months of acrimony with the governor, Chibuike Amaechi.

The governor had accused him of doing the bidding of Patience Jonathan, wife of President Goodluck Jonathan, and attempting to hijack the control of the state.

After his transfer, Mr. Mbu declared himself the “lion” that tamed Rivers State “tiger”, apparently referring to Mr. Amaechi.

In Abuja, Mr. Mbu courted more controversy, first banning protests demanding the release over 200 Chibok school girls abducted by Boko Haram, and later arresting AIT journalist, Amaechi Anakwe.

Last week, Mr. Mbu described himself as a rebel with a good cause, and threatened to “bring down” any community that kills a police personnel.

A statement by the police spokesperson, Emmanuel Ojukwu, said the redeployment of Mr. Mbu and the other AIGs is part of the reorganization of the Nigeria Police Force.

He said the redeployment to various departments, zonal commands and formations of the Force is effective immediately.

Mr. Abba charged the newly promoted officers to be more service-oriented in the discharge of their constitutional responsibilities.

He also urged the public to partner closely with the force in its determination to ensure improved safety and security in Nigeria.

    • amazing2012

      If he lion let him go to Borno or Yobe not peaceful place. He is not lion but coward woman that is used and will be dump later. Remember what happen to Major Almustapha! This regime has two of Mustapha’s type that may end up in prison: the prostitute Mrylin Ogar and mad Nmbu, all should wait for time. Time heals !!

      • BlackieUmukoro

        Call somebody’s wife, mother, sister, aunt, friend, collegue, godmother, guardian and a breadwinner a Prostitute, when you have no verifiable facts/evidence is pure madness. Check into Aro mental home fast before you enter the market. It is an advice. Cheers Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

        • amazing2012

          I think you are sick, I did not say she is not a bread winner. I only say she is a prostitute, perhaps using that to feed those you mentioned. She Is always refer to as “Miss” and you know what it mean. Ogar has killed innocent soul, tell lies against innocent and frame many, time will tell. She is worse than prostitute, I pray what she did to other people husbands, wives, son, sisters, brothers, aunt, cousin, niece etc will happen to her and her relations. For Instance: the killing of innocent Laborers in APO, (APO 18). To kill 18innocent soul and you think she is responsible ? God will judge, surely he is not in support of “work to kill” ” thou shall not kill”. Oga come out to defend the killing of the innocents !!

          • BlackieUmukoro

            I said it and still maintain that you are seriously sick. Your case is closed sine die or indefinitely. Good night Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

          • amazing2012

            You dating she is a saint ? So the lives of those killed by the director government Boko haram is a waste ? I repeat she is worse than a prostitute !

          • amazing2012

            And you too who is in support of Injustice, may God do the same thing to you and your family generation unborn !

          • BlackieUmukoro

            If your mother is addressed as such, would you be happy. Definitely not. So stop the hate game and uncouth name calling. Cheers Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

          • amazing2012

            What will I do If my mother did what she should be insulted ? Oh because she is a mother then no justice or truthfulness ? Advice your mother to be good or recieve what she ask for. The mothers of those killed and their relations are not mothers?

          • BlackieUmukoro

            Don’t insult my mother. Don’t go there at all. If you do it to other mothers, don’t try it with mine. Do not get me angry because if I am angry you will not like it. Enough of your very rude and unruly behaviour. Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

          • amazing2012

            You have already insulted her by insulting other children who has mothers also. I repeat killing and supporting the killing only bad and terrible people can do that. Boko boys are parents does that reduce their cursed ?

          • BlackieUmukoro

            It is unfortunate that you have gone beyond redemption. Therefore I decree this morning that, if you were born of a woman and sucked her breast, and decided to show disrespect to Mothers, may your life be full of disgrace. But if you duly repent and desist from such ways, only then shall peace come into your life. The choice is yours Sent from my BlackBerry wireless device from MTN

    Why selective reporting? Why have Premium Times and Sahara Reporters refused to report the news: “We don’t have Buhari’s credentials” -Nigeria Army, after 3 hours of breaking?

    • Isi Agwo

      There refusal to report the Army’s declaration that they do not have Bokohari’s credentials only shows you its mandate as Propaganda Times. It’s is the mouthpiece of APC.

      • Niakita Kresbin

        Let me help you to quit making a mess of yourself. The say they do not have his originals. Not that they do not have his certificates. It is even on this same website but you will not see it. By the way can you keep a photocopy of something whose original never existed. Use your head.

      • burning spear

        is that what u read–then let them publish the ones they have–cause all INEC NEEDS are the photocopies-why is the army hiding them-then?—this is how the night soil men and juju priest in APC often try to lie their way up–u want to fight corruption–when u personify thievery in 9ja–thieves

      • GrantUK

        Just as Buhari does not hold O’L you do not possess the minimum requirem’t to lecture me on what the Nigeria Army said. Next please!

    • matthew

      oga u left out “original”. What they said was, “we don’t have Buhari’s original credentials”. Please comment well next time. If u check very well premium times have the news item on their blog. Check.

  • endingNaija

    Mr. Mbu, I have two sentences for you: This is Lagos. DO NOT TRY any PDP partisan or Patience Jonathan partisan nonsense in Lagos. We, Nigerian people will hold you responsible BEFORE THE LAW if you try any partisan nonsense in Lagos-Be Advised!

    • amazing2012

      Excellent !

  • King Carlos

    Mbu in Lagos? Na from here e go retire. Why can’t they post him to Borno or Adamawa? He wants to come and ‘capture’ Lagos for PDP?

    Tinubu is waiting for you.

  • Al

    Preparation for crack down, in God beautiful names Mbu & co as wel pdp wil fail naturally

  • Gidi

    This will be the end of Mbu’s career if he try anything funky in Lagos. If he attempt what he did in Rivers in Lagos, he can surely kiss his career good bye. This is “Eko” not Rivers. Lagos the cosmopolitan city where Police are meant to be professional not partisan.

    I am sure Lagos state leadership are paying close attention given Mbu’s antecedent. If Mbu want to perform his job well, he had better follow in the full step of his predecessor. Lagos is the only state where Police works well with the community.

  • Contact Point

    Mbu, This is Lagos. Carry along 12 prophets, 12 prophetesses, 12 jujumen, 12 witches and wizards, but listen again, THIS IS LAGOS.

  • Chris1408

    NPF, the security wing of PDP. GEJ is getting more and more desperate. Na by force to win election?

    • Omo JC

      The whole political landscape has really become slipperier than ever in the past few weeks.
      1. DSS raided APC Lagos office
      2. Buhari certificate issue
      3. Fayose’s “Death advertisement”
      4. Rumor that Buhari is traveling to the US for medical treatment
      5. Re-deployment of a controversial CP to Lagos (APC-stronghold).
      6. Meeting with OBJ (with David Oyedepo & Pastot EA Adeboye supposedly in attendance)
      7. Meeting with David Oyedepo and other Christian leaders to devise means of overcoming Osinbajo’s rising influence (Sahara Reporters).
      8….9….10………the list will grow in the next few weeks!!!!!
      I can assure you that PDP is ready to anything to make sure Jonathan win this election. I think Jonathan needs to realize that he will be presiding over a very HOSTILE country unless he wins free and fair. If truly political offices are avenues to SERVE ones’ fatherland, we don’t need all these dirty and SATANIC moves we have been witnessing in the past few weeks.

  • Eze1

    Mbu the Lion tamer to Lagos, something is fishy….

  • deri

    GOOD WORK–LET US SEE HOW THE night SOIL MEN IN APC WILL RECRUIT ELECTION RIGGERS FROM TOGO AND REPUBLIC OF BENIN TO VOTE FOR THEM

  • Truthometer

    Posted to Lagos to go and enforce rigging for PDP? Listen carefully; we tame lion tamer in Lagos.

  • taewo

    Jonathan is so desperate that he posted Mbu to go an rig the presidential election for him in Lagos

  • L’Bookie

    Waste of resources! This guy is too tough to be in a peaceful state like Lagos. He should be redeployed to Yobe or Borno or Adamawa. I can see GEJ is not really interested in fighting BH.

  • SAM .A

    Watch my words , Joseph Mbu is on his last assignment or posting to Lagos zone, by FeBuhari 14th 12 MN ,he will get the information on his termination in Police . By 29/5/2015 , his job will come to an end . On 30/5 /2015 .
    he would be prepared to come and give account of his policing in River State , where he served as the lap Dog of Madam Patience , a toothless. Bulldog who saw himself as a lion .
    After 29/52015 , Nigeria will no longer need a partician Police or Army .Corruption should be reduced to minimum level.
    Before warned , Lagos is not where you come and flex the power you don’t have , they will definitely clamp your wings.

  • Lemmuel Odjay

    Lagosians beware! Lock up your young ones before Mbu aka “Lion” leaves his den on a hunting patrol. Why Lagos State? Why not Bayelsa State? But there’s one thing about Lagosians. He won’t find Lagos a rich hunting ground o. Eko ogba gbere. Elections are around the corner, Mr Mbu. Don’t act funny. The backlash may surprise you. This is Lagos…
