Reports gaining grounds is that Governor Abdulaziz Yari of Zamfara
Barely few hours from the removal of the state Commissioner of Police and a new one being installed, the Akwa Ibom State House of Assembly came under siege by the Army, Police and the Civil Defence.
A source who claimed anonymous said: “The plot is to enable the five sacked Assembly members to overthrow the Speaker, Hon. Onofiok Luke in order to install Hon. Nse Ntuen as the new Speaker.”
Earlier when the commissioner was removed and replaced, the Governor through his Commissioner for Information & Strategy condemned the removal of the past commissioner of Police. The Commissioner for Information Charles Udoh said it is surprising to see the removal of a man who is doing his job well.
According to Charles: “Apart from the fact that the outgoing CP barely spent a month in the State, the circumstances surrounding his removal is a mockery to the nation and a contrast to the insecurity battle of the federal government.
“Why should an officer who successfully resisted the invasion of hoodlums and professionally protected an institution of government be rewarded with unceremonial removal from office? Ordinarily, such feat in other climes would have attracted promotion and commendation.
“This is a sharp pointer today the sad narrative that the force is tilting its political pendulum to favour a particular political divide.
“The danger this portends to our democracy is better imagined than seen. We are shocked to see this action from the Police that should unbiasedly serve the interest of all.
“Sadly, the precedent the force has set now encourages anyone to take laws into his hand ostensibly because the power from “above” is strong enough to shield the culprit.”
