What manner of lion?: AIG Mbu not fit to be a police officer, says Rivers APC

Controverial police Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), Mr. Joseph Mbu, today received more whips for claiming to be a lion who tamed Governor Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi during his (Mbu’s) days as Commissioner of Police in Rivers State.

The latest attack came from the Rivers State Chapter of the All Progressives Congress (APC), which in a statement in Port Harcourt said it read “with utmost shock the unfortunate outburst and self glorification of Mr. Joseph Mbu.” APC in the statement issued by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze on behalf of the State Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, berated Mbu for what it called his unprovoked attack on Governor Amaechi while handing over to Mr. Wilson Inalegwu, his successor as FCT Commissioner of Police, on Monday in Abuja.

Rivers APC said: “Mbu on that occasion described himself as the lion that tamed the leopard in Rivers State. He was referring to Governor Amaechi – the Chief Security Officer of Rivers State from whom Mbu, as a mere Commissioner of Police, ought to have been taking orders if he was actually in the State to do his professional work as a policeman and not to execute a hidden agenda from enemies of Rivers State in Abuja. 

“This careless statement by a man whose tenure as Commissioner of Police in Rivers State nearly ruined both the security and economy of our dear State simply vindicates our stand that Mbu ought not to be in a disciplined and respected profession like the police. We have consistently pointed out that Joseph Mbu ought not to be in police in the first place, not to talk of being promoted to enviable rank of Assistant Inspector-General of Police which he presently occupies. It is a big shame that, rather than fight crime and insecurity during his days in Rivers State, Mbu – as he himself has now confessed – was busy fighting his boss – a man who has achieved several acclaimed feats in the area of security! We have once more been proved right!

“It is a sad commentary on the rot in our dear Country that a man like Mbu, who has no respect for constitutional authority and takes pleasure in sabotaging a man from whom he should be taking orders could rise to his present enviable position in the Nigeria Police Force. This obviously speaks volumes about the present state of affairs in the Force.

“In the circumstances, we just pray and hope that we are reading in the papers about our new Commissioner of Police, Mr. Dan Bature, is not true. From reports in the press, Mr. Bature has been sent to install an unpopular PDP character who has destroyed our education sector at the Federal level as the next Governor of Rivers State. If this is indeed true, we hope that Mr. Bature will refuse to be another Joseph Mbu and do his work in Rivers State as a professional officer, as we have always known him to be.”
