Mbu is a lawless policeman – APC goes hard on Police AIG

by Damilola Jagun

The main opposition party, All Progressives Congress (APC) has described Joseph Mbu, the AIG in charge of Zone 2 Command, as a lawless policeman.

The APC was reacting to the recent comments of Joseph Mbu, where he vowed to kill 20 civilians whenever a policeman is killed before, during and after the general elections.

Mbu, had on Thursday, February 12, during an official visit to the Eleweran Command headquarters, in Abeokuta, Ogun State, said to police officers: “If one of my men is killed, I shall kill twenty of them but don’t shoot first. If they shoot you, shoot back in self-defence. Anybody who fires you, fire him back in self-defence. Our actions and activities will go a long way to decide this election, so, I have come to tell you that we must remain impartial in ensuring free, fair, peaceful and violent-free polls.”

“As far as the law is concerned, we are not going to respect anybody and whoever is coming to the booth should vote and leave peacefully. Anyone who comes there to campaign, even if it is the chief executive of the state, a constable at that polling booth would stop him.”

In a statement released on Saturday, February 14, by the National Publicity Secretary, Lai Mohammed, the party stated that Mbu’s actions since he was posted to Lagos have neither dignified the police as an institution nor portrayed him as a well-trained law enforcement agent.

Furthermore, the statement added that the temperament, comportment, utterances and actions of Mbu, a very senior police officer, are capable of inciting mass killings, violence and anarchy.
