Mbu detains AIT reporter for calling him ‘controversial police officer’

The Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in Zone 7, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu, yesterday, continued his bully of Nigerian citizens he is paid to protect.

This is as he ordered the detention of Africa Independent Television (AIT) reporter, Amaechi Anakwue over a frivolous charge.

Mbu invited Anakwue to his office for allegedly referring to him as a “controversial police officer” during a television programme.

It was learnt that on getting to the office, Mbu ordered his men to detain Anakwue.

Last night, the management of DAAR Communications demanded the release of the journalist.

DailyPost could not ascertain if he has been released.

Mbu, who was Rivers State commissioner of Police was redeployed to Abuja, following his hostile relationship with Governor Rotimi Amaechi.

In Rivers State, Mbu was accused of authorising the use of “rubber bullets” to disperse a group preparing to hold a rally, in which Senator Magnus Abe was shot.

On getting to Abuja, he authorised the use of water cannon to disperse protesting lecturers of polytechnics and colleges of education at the Eagle Square.

He recently described himself as a “lion”, who tamed a leopard in Rivers State, apparently referring to Governor Amaechi.

Amaechi, however, lambasted Mbu, describing him as a man who “completely lacks the steel and strength of character of a lion, and is rather a shameless, corrupt puppet and toothless attack dog of a woman”.
