All Progressives Congress (APC), Rivers State Chapter, has set up a three-man committee to compile a comprehensive list of atrocities by the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu since he assumed office as the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State in February 2013.
According to statement signed by Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze, SSA Media and Public Affairs to the Interim State Chairman, APC Rivers State, the three-man Committee is headed by Chief Andy Nweye, with Chief Eze Chukwuemeka Eze as Secretary and Chief Emeka Bekee as the third member.
Inaugurating the Committee at the State Secretariat Headquarters of APC in the State capital, Port Harcourt, the State APC Interim Chairman, Dr. Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, noted that the members were chosen based on merit and expressed confidence that they would do a good job.
"This committee is made up of well-informed political experts and meticulous researchers, so I expect you to come up with a list of not less than 100 sins of CP Mbu against Rivers State and its people for
formal submission to the UN as it seems that the Nigerian Institutions in charge of the Police Force in Nigeria are toying with the security and lives of the people of Rivers State.
"True, the assignment is difficult but CP Mbu has made your work easy by his brazen partisanship in favour of the opposition Peoples Democratic party (PDP) in the state. As a result of his overzealousness to impress his masters as an undeclared member of the PDP, the police commissioner commits a fresh sin against the good people of Rivers State almost on a daily basis," Dr. Ikanya said.
The Rivers State APC Interim Chairman reiterated the party's position that Mbu be immediately redeployed outside Rivers State as he is a curse to the State and her people.
He regretted that all arguments by well-meaning Nigerians, including the National Assembly, for Mbu's redeployment have fallen on the deaf ears of the police authorities in Abuja and the Federal Government.
He, however, expressed strong belief that "there will surely be a day of reckoning, and when that day comes, CP Mbu will be called to account for his stewardship in Rivers State. When that day of
reckoning comes, the work of your committee will play a big role in getting Mbu to pay for his sins against Rivers State and its people."
Dr. Ikanya gave the Committee two weeks to complete its work and
submit its report.
Responding, the Committee Chairman, Chief Andy Nweye, thanked the party chairman for the confidence reposed in the committee and promised that they would live up to expectation.
