Influential individuals sabotaging security operatives’ efforts in Anambra – CP

The Anambra State Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye has accused certain influential persons in the state of sabotaging efforts of the security operatives in securing the State.

He attributed the recent few security breaches that occured in the State to handiwork of the individuals he described as enemies of progress working tirelessly to frustrate operatives efforts.

Speaking to newsmen in his office, the CP said the sabotage resulted to attacks on police stations and the cult-related killings that recently surged in Awka.

He said, “When those things that have happened over a period of time begin to happen again, the question people should ask is Why?

“Could you imagine that the cultists we arrested, charged to court, and got remanded in prison custody that some powerful locals are going to the judiciary to lobby to get them released? And some have been released. And they are the ones unleashing this mayhem again! That is number one.

“Two, you must have heard of the AK-47 we recently recovered from a suspect in Awada. What the suspect told us was that they procured it for him to engage in a showdown with a rival cult group. 

“Now, if that AK-47 was not recovered or had joined the recent cult-related clash, could you imagine what the casualty level would have been?”

The CP further revealed that three Beretta pistols were also recently recovered from cultists in Ogidi and Ekwulobia within a space of few hours, which, he said, would have also aggravated the cult-related clash if the police had not recovered them.

Adeoye who also graced the Nigeria Union of Journalists, NUJ (Anambra State Council) in Awka on Thursday, also recounted other various proactive policing strategies and initiatives newly introduced to further strengthen the security of the State.

Represented by Deputy Commissioner of Police in charge of the Criminal Investigation Department, DCP Akin Fakorede; the CP further reassured Ndị Anambra of the Command’s commitment to sustained security of lives and properties in the State.

He also assured sustained synergy and good-working relationship between the Command and the media towards building the safest State.
