    This so-called re-appointment and re-assignment is borne out of envy and petty jealousy and it is very unfortunate the new IGP fell for it. In the police, it is alleged that ACP Frank Mbah is former IGP Mohammed Abubakar’s favoured boy. In that light, a group of some senior police officers have been greatly uncomfortable with Mbah’s position under Abubakar. But with the Abubakar’s exit, this group of senior officers had to strike with blackmail and mischief which saw to this re-assignments at a time the young man, Frank Mbah was giving the best in terms of police image making..

    DCP Emannuel Ojukwu may be Mbah’s senior but we have seen two of them perform in that same position. Frank Mbah appreciates, articulates and delivers issues better to the Nigerian public. I personally feel that the consideration for job of
    police image making should involve more serious and more relevant issues than the mere consideration of “he will not be there.”

    You people have to remember earlier this year what this man MR MBAH said about the igbo ethnic group. According to the reaction of the Nigeria Police Force through CSP Frank Mba in the newspaper to the petition is uncouth, insultive, derogatory and inflammatory. CSP Frank Mba is quoted to have said: ‘There can never be more than one IGP and eight DIGs at a time, and if some officers from a particular ethnic group in the country decided to retire or opt out of the service to do businesses like importing containers, thereby giving room for other ethnic group to get promoted when it’s promotion
    time, then the IGP is not to be blamed at all. If a particular tribe joined the service years after (members of) another ethnic group were recruited, you don’t expect the ones that joined late to be promoted before the ones that were the first to be recruited.’

    To refer to a people as ‘container importers’ is uncouth, derogatory and insensitive. It is regrettable that a Force Public Relations Officer could so refer to a people. It is important to state that managers of public relations of institutions, especially strategic institutions, should always clean up their language. I am so shocked that CSP Frank Mba, in addressing the allegation, could so react. He should reflect on his reaction. We do not need inflammatory reactions to sensitive allegations or demands. Mr Frank Mba was a failure to this comment he made, many of his own officer’s do not back him at all.
