The All Progressives Congress (APC) yesterday raised the alarm over the redeployment of the controversial Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), Joseph Mbu to Zone Two formerly held by AIG Umaru Manko.
APC spokesman in Lagos State, Joe Igbokwe at a press briefing at his office in Ikeja, accused the Federal Government of redeploying Mbu to Lagos for an ulterior motive.
Igbokwe, who kicked against Mbu’s posting to Lagos, said the state was ready for Mbu. “Mbu must understand clearly that this is Lagos. Since Lagos was created in 1967, it has been in the hands of progressives, not Rivers or Abuja. This a special state where the best minds live. This is the city of civil societies and the media. We know his antecedents and if he brings all those his unbecoming behaviours to Lagos, we will retire him from the police.
“Mbu is known for some kind of jobs, so it is not in doubt that those who sent him to Lagos, brought him for a mission. We are watching, so before they make any move, we know where they are going. We boldly welcome Mbu to Lagos, but he should tread carefully. He should be careful. If he fails to heed our advice, we will run him down and he will go down if he tried the threat and abuses he did in Rivers, he will regret them. If he brings those antics he exhibited in Rivers and Abuja, he will regret joining the force.
“We know he is not coming to do normal police routine duties, but we will advise him to drop all those excess baggages he exhibited in Port Harcourt. He was rejected in Rivers, so if he comes here to abuse a sitting governor, we will not take it from him. Governor Fashola is the Chief Security Officer of the state and if he abuses him, we will run him down. We will tell him that this is the city of both the electronic and the print media.
