The Rivers State Police Command has described as rumors reports of the redeployment of the Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu from the state to the Federal Capital Teritory, FCT, Police Command.
A letter emanating from the Police Service Commission and authorized by its Chairman, former Inspector General of Police, Mr. Mike Okiro, had earlier announced that Mbu had been redeployed and is to be replaced with Johnson Ogunsakin, who was until his recent appointment, the Commissioner of police in charge of the special fraud investigative unit in Lagos.
But the Rivers Police Public Relations Officer, Ahmad Muhammed, said the Command is yet to be formally notified of the redeployment of Mr. Mbu from the state.
“We have channels of communication in police operations. As am talking with you now we are yet to be communicated with about any redeployment. All this things are rumor for now. The Inspector General of Police has not communicated to us that the State Police Commissioner has been redeployed”, he said.
