The Rivers State government has renewed its war of words with the immediate past Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu, saying the police chief did not accomplish his mission in the state, despite coming there with a script.
The state Commissioner for Lands and Survey, Hon. Ezemonye Ezekiel-Amadi, who stated this while fielding questions from newsmen at his office in Port Harcourt, also dismissed claims by the erstwhile police commissioner that government officials in the state used tinted vehicles as a cover to commit crime, including assassinations, describing Mbu as an unstable character.
It would be recalled that Mbu during a recent visit to the supervising Minister of Education, Chief Nyesom Wike, in company with his successor, Mr. Tunde Ogunsakin, told the new Rivers police commissioner to be on the look-out for government-owned tinted vehicles, as occupants of such vehicles could be assassins.
But Ezekiel-Amadi picked holes in the allegation even as he queried why Mbu never arrested anyone using tinted vehicles to commit such crimes during ‘his infamous reign’ in the state as the commissioner of Police.
He said; “That comment by Mbu is the most irresponsible thing I have heard from any policeman anywhere in the world. If that is the trend here, how come all the while during infamous rule in the state, he never paraded anybody arrested with such vehicles who are government agent.
“If I describe him (Mbu) as a lunatic, then; I am definitely describing who a lunatic should be. Here is a man, who 13,000 newly recruited teachers had gone to collect their letters of engagement and he went there and shot tear-gas canisters at them.
“Here is a man who claimed that he is a professional and that he has the powers to either grant approval for rallies under the Public Order Act. He claimed he had such powers, he did not know that Justice Anuli Chikere of the Federal High Court, upheld by the Court of Appeal, had nullified the Public Order Act.
“He didn’t know and he said he was a professional. Here is a man who, while he was here, hardly paraded any criminal arrested by him. He doesn’t have any pedigree to advice the new Commissioner of because while he was here, he did not do his work as Commissioner of Police”.
Ezekiel-Amadi also gave a word of advice to Wike urging him to be careful, if he was employing the services of Mbu, pointing out that the new FCT Police boss told leader of the State House of Assembly, Hon. Chidi Lloyd things that could only come from a person that was unstable.
His words; “I am advising Nyesom Wike, if he is employing Mbu as a security man, he should be careful because that guy is not stable. I want you to interview Chidi Lloyd; let him tell you chilling things Mbu told him. Chidi Lloyd is alive.
“Such things can only be said by a man who is unstable. You can talk to all the DPO’s and Area Commanders who have been in this town under Mbu; talk to them privately. They will tell you that the man is definitely not well. He has been under this enunciation that he is going to be appointed an Inspector General of Police, IGP and that is why he had to do what he did.
“Who will appoint Mbu IG of Police? I want to assume that he came to Rivers State with a script; but you can’t you see that he (Mbu) failed in his assignment? He bungled it because he doesn’t have the brain to put together an action plan. So, can those people who sent him look at him again and give him a higher assignment? Yet, he said he is a professional; as far as I am concerned, Mbu is a tout”.

I deeply commiserate with those who have lost their loved ones and as a father, I share the sentiment of my three daughters who protested in Lagos and London. As a young boy of 16, I participated in the ‘Ali Must Go Protest’ of 1978, so I understand the determination of our youths who rightly want our country to be better. We must all do our part to make Nigeria great! I will continue to do my own quota in providing for those who are most in need of support in our country in these tough times .…F.Ote💲”

“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!”

Youths Burn Down Sanwo-Olu’s Mother’s House In Lagos (VIDEO)
Lagos youths have set the family house of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu on fire.
This was after the Governor said that no nobody was killed during the shooting by soldiers at Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday night.
Sanwo-Olu had debunked claims that the soldiers opened fire and killed some peaceful protesters.
Recall that men of the Nigerian Army reportedly opened fire on protesters following the declaration of 24 hours curfew by the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwolu.
Bullets fired by security operatives hit some persons and at least two persons have been confirmed killed by the police and many injured
Voices in viral footage blamed the shootings on soldiers.
However, the angry youth attacked several important places such as Nigeria Port Authority, TVC News, and the family house of the Governor where his mother resides.
