Despite calls from the National Assembly and several interest groups for the redeployment of River State Police Commissioner Mbu Joseph Mbu for his purported role in the crisis in Rivers State, the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Abubakar, has left the Rivers CP out of the 14 commissioners whose redeployment he just ordered.
States with new commissioners are Borno, Zamfara, Bayelsa and Ebonyi states.
The fourteen newly redeployed CPs are: Lawal Tanko who goes to Borno state, Ibrahim Ahmed, Zamfara state, Hilary Okpara, Bayelsa state, Maigari Dikko, Ebonyi state.
