Police Officers Attached to Gov Nyako’s Official Residence Withdrawn
Authorities of the Nigerian Police Force at the weekend withdrew the police officers attached to the Adamawa State Government House.
Governor Murtala Nyako, who confirmed this to newsmen on Sunday, said he was yet to be officially informed why the police officers were withdrawn.
It was gathered that the number of security operative attached to the government house was reduced from 170 to 30 in the past few days.
It was further gathered that about 30 security operatives that were suppose to be redeployed had been directed to mount security in Yola, Abuja and the Lagos offices of Adamawa state government.
When contacted, Ahmed Sajoh, the Director of Press to the state governor confirmed that Nyako, was not informed either by the state’s Police Commissioner or the headquarters in Abuja, about the decision, adding that the governor was keeping his fingers crossed
“We are waiting until Monday (Today) to see whether they will inform us. We don’t want to impugn anything for now. We are keeping our fingers crossed” he said. “We do not know the reason for the withdrawal. They may have their reason”.
When asked if the withdrawal had compromised the governor’s security, Sajoh affirmed that Nyako doesn’t reside in the government House, but his personal house which is flooded by soldiers, police and other security operatives.
The state Commissioner of Police, Daniel Abakasanga, when contacted for confirmation refused to answer calls made to his mobile phone, while DSP Othman Abubakar, the state’s Police Public Relations Officer (PPPRO) also declined to comment on the issue.
Efforts to get reaction from Frank Mba, the police headquarters spokesman also failed as he was not answering his call.
It would be recalled that the state governor was highly criticised last Wednesday at the expanded security meeting presided over by President Goodluck Jonathan, over his memo to the Northern Governors Forum accusing the president of genocide in the north-east region regarding the fight on terrorism.
