‘Amaechi Can Never Forget Me, I Tamed Him Like A Lion’ — Mbu
Outgoing Commissioner of Police in the Federal Capital Territory,, Joseph Mbu, on Monday boasted that Governor Rotimi Amaechi of River State will never forget him because he tamed him like a lion.
Mbu who had a running battle with the governor while serving as Commissioner of Police in the state before he was transferred to the FCT threw the jab at the governor in a veiled statement while handover the affairs of the FCT Police to the newly appointed Commissioner, Mr Wilson Inalegu
Mbu was recently appointed the Assistant Inspector General of Police in charge of Zone 7 after his sting in Abuja.
Mbu charged his successor at the FCT, to place sentiment aside in order to handle his new assignment effectively.
“You are the father of the command; do not apply sentiments when doing police work because when you do that, you will fail,” he said.
“What the force need is a strong leader who leads by example.” Referring to the governor indirectly, Mbu boasted that Amaechi could not forget him in a hurry. “It is only the lion that can tame the leopard,” he bragged.
“Each time the leopard remembers my face, it makes noise, but if it knows I am around, it cannot make noise.
“I tamed the leopard in Port Harcourt; each time he remembers my face, he would remember how I tamed him. A lion is a lion.”
Responding, Inalegu pledged to sustain the standard set by Mbu, but stressed that the command would be civil in dealing with the public.
Inalegu said that it was necessary to keep to best practices as the FCT was the convergence centre for Nigerians and foreigners alike.
Recall that Amaechi had on Friday referred to Mbu “as a politician in police uniform”.
“Joseph Mbu clearly showed us that he was a registered member of PDP,” he said while welcoming the new police commissioner to the state.
“Fortunately for us, they took him away. The way Mr. Mbu was going, Rivers economy would have collapsed completely,” he added.
