Rivers Police Commissioner, Joseph Mbu Removed
Mbu, who is expected to leave his post at the end of the week was removed by the police hierarchy following threats by the 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 source said.
No public announcement has however been made of his removal.
The controversial police commissioner, known to be a crony of Patience Jonathan, the wife of Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan, will be sent to the National Institute for Strategic Studies (NIPSS) in Kuru, Jos as a face-saving measure if President Jonathan approves.
Mr. Mbu has been accused of working to undermine Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State, a political foe to Mr. Jonathan. The controversial commissioner had often provided cover to members of the political opposition in Rivers State who have sought to cause violence in the state by attempting to hijack the state assembly in an illicit bid to impeach Mr. Amaechi.
In recent weeks, as he sensed his planned removal from Rivers State, Mr. Mbu had placed newspaper adverts in newspaper to congratulate Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police Muhammed Abubakar.
