Police CP Invites Rivers Speaker, Amaechi’s Chief Of Staff Over Assassination Allegation

Published

Amaechi1Many are the travails of the Speaker, Rivers State House of Assembly, Mr.Otelemaba Dan Amachree and Chief of Staff to Governor Rotimi Amaechi, Mr. Tony Okocha, following their allegation of a plot to kill the governor.

The state Commissioner of Police, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu, had first of all withdrawn some of the security details attached to the Speaker and completely withdrawn those of Okocha; the duo are Amaechi’s key supporters in the struggle for the soul of the Rivers PDP.

It would be recalled that Mr. Amachree alleged that the withdrawal of their security details was the first step in the alleged plot to destabilise the state and that the withdrawal of the governor’s security details would follow soon.

In inviting them, Mr. Mbu described the allegation as a very serious issue. He said contrary to what Mr.Amachree wanted the world to believe, only nine of the 24 policemen were withdrawn and for other areas in need of security beef-up.

“The Speaker has raised very serious issues about security threats and about the attempt to assassinate the governor (Rivers), His Excellency and the chief security officer of this state. That is a very serious issue and the speaker of the House of Assembly will be invited and will be interrogated to give more facts and throw light into this information,” Mbu told journalists in Port Harcourt.

He added that the Mr. Okocha would also be invited for questioning and warned that he won’t tolerate inflammatory statements from any quarters.

“As the chairman of internal security in the state, I will not allow people to make inflammatory statements” he said.

On the controversial withdrawal of security details to the Speaker, the police chief explained, “Everybody in Government House wants to see himself as a governor. The speaker of Rivers state House of Assembly has 15 personnel from the Special Protection Unit of the Nigeria Police. As if those men are not enough, he (Speaker) still acquired nine from the mobile police. So, only one person has 24 personnel of the Nigeria police attached to himself.

“What I did was that the special protection unit, as the name implies, is to protect government officials” so as a means towards even distribution of security details to government officials without jeopardizing the general security of the state, the commissioner of police had to withdraw some of the policemen attached to the Speaker.

Mr. Mbu however frowned at the Speaker’s insistence on having a full complement of security details fuming, “So, if you withdraw nine men and you still leave 15 men with the Speaker, what else does he want? Does he want to have police personnel like the president of Nigeria?” he asked.

Good day, My name is Obi-Enadhuze Daniel younger brother of the now deceased Okechukwu Obi-Enadhuze @O_Okee . I, my brother and mother lived at makinde police barracks, mafoluku, Oshodi, Lagos State.

Today at about 11 o’clock in the morning the police station at makinde was attacked by thugs who wanted to destroy the station, I my mom and brother were holed up in our house.

 The attack went on for hours before the thugs eventually breached the police and proceeded to set the station on fire, after accomplishing this they set their sights to the barracks and began the assault, they proceeded to destroy every car in the barracks, my mom’s 2 cars where destroyed and set on fire and then they infiltrated our house by breaking the door they then proceeded to ransack the house and carted away with everything we own. 

 my brother on trying to get them to take everything but spare us was pushed to my mom’s room and stabbed on the neck, the attacker then proceeded to attack me but missed my neck but got my chin instead, after this my mom and I carried my brothers body to the entrance of the station soliciting for help from the thugs still ravaging the barracks, we were finally able to put him in a wheelbarrow and took him to a hospital where he was rejected because “he was already dead” unfazed we moved him to another hospital where he met the same treatment this was where he bled his last drops of blood and died, his body has now been moved to a morgue

we have lost every single thing we own, as our house was completely ransacked and set on fire the only thing left is my brothers phone and at about 8 o’clock this evening the barracks was still on fire but Okechukwu has paid with the ultimate price

I and my mother are homeless with nothing now but we’re safe for now, we thank everyone that has been able to reach out to us, and were able to share consoling words with us in these trying times, God bless you

While we were holed up in the house the three of us said these words together and we say it again ” THREE OF US ARE HERE, THREE OF US ARE TOGETHER, THREE OF US ARE SAFE”

Let it be known that my brother @O_Okee  was NOT killed by a police bullet but died a hero protecting my mother and I.

If you see this please retweet, let the world know how Okechukwu died. He was NOT killed by a police bullet but thugs in his home!”
