Following his alleged role in the crisis rocking Rivers State, the Police Service Commission, PSC, said it has started a full-scale investigation into the activities of the Police Commissioner, Mbu Joseph Mbu and all the policemen said to have involved themselves in the political crises in the state.

Speaking in Lagos, at a ceremony marking the commissioning of an estate built for policemen by President Goodluck Jonathan, Chairman of the PSC, Chief Mike Okiro said that the PSC had received all the petitions forwarded to it by Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi on the activities of Police Commissioner Mbu but added, “however, that the principle of fundamental human rights demand that an accused person should be given a fair hearing. I have directed the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Abubakar, to investigate the matter and once he is found wanting he will be dealt with accordingly”.

Amaechi had petitioned the PSC against Commissioner Mbu following his alleged poor handling of security matters involving those allegedly being backed by the presidency against his government. Copies of the petition were also sent to President Jonathan, the IGP, and principal officers of the National Assembly among others.

Okiro further said that Amaechi raised various allegations against Mbu, part of which included gross abuse of power.

He described the recent fracas involving members of the Rivers State House of Assembly as quite unfortunate but added that the public should allow the police to do its investigations to ensure that justice was done to the parties involved in the dispute.
