The All Progressives Congress in Rivers State has joined Professor Wole Soyinka in calling for the redeployment of the Rivers State Commissioner of Police Joseph Mbu to Boko Haram territories- Borno and Yobe states.
Professor Soyinka had said sarcastically that Joseph Mbu’s skills would be more valuable in Boko Haram territories owing to the fact that he is tough.
The Rivers APC Interim Chairman Chief Davies Ikanya said, “We totally agree with Prof Soyinka’s recommendation that CP Joseph Mbu should be sent to where his skills are needed most since his use of minimum force could send a serving senator to a London hospital. If he is permitted to use maximum force the menace of Boko Haram will be a thing of the past! We therefore join the respected Nobel Laureate in pleading with the presidency to as a matter of urgency redeploy CP Mbu to either Borno or Yobe state as we do not need him in Rivers State”
Also, Rivers State APC welcomed the decision of the Inspector General of Police to look into the shooting of Senator Magnus Abe and Sir Tony Okocha. It however, urged that the investigation be thorough and transparent.
