Rivers Police Commissioner Joseph Mbu Transferred To Abuja

After sparing him in previous transfer exercises, the Police Service Commission has finally moved Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu, who has been severally accused of highhandness in the state to the Federal Capital Territory Command.
He is to be replaced by the Commissioner in charge of the Special Fraud Unit, Johnson Ogunshakin.
SaharaReporters had 3 days ago hinted Mbu’s removal citing Police headquarters sources.
“The removal of the police commissioner, known to be a crony of Patience Jonathan, the wife of Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan, is coming on the heels of threats by opposition party All Progressives Congress (APC) to block all legislative proposals by Mr. Jonathan until the political crisis believed to be instigated in Rivers State by the President and his wife is resolved,” the online news platform had reported.
Mbu, who has had issues with the state government had been accused of ‘tormenting’ Governor Rotimi Amaechi and frustrating his interests in the state because of his differences with President Jonathan.
13 senior officers were affected by the transfer exercise.
