Anambra donates 53 vehicles to police

…As IGP warns against abuse of human rights


The Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar yesterday made his first official visit to Anambra State where he received 53 operational vehicles from Governor Peter Obi. Speaking during a courtesy call on the governor at the Governor’s Lodge, Abubakar commended the state government’s partnership with the police to restore security in the state.

The police boss expressed satisfaction with the performance of the policemen in the state, adding that the collaborative efforts of the state Governor, Mr. Peter Obi and the Police Commissioner, Mr. Balla Nasarawa, contributed to such great feat. “It is no longer news that Anambra State is one of the states that security and stability have been greatly achieved because of the active nature of Anambra State police command and the state government.

Today there is improved security and stability in the state.” He further warned the state police command against constant abuse of human rights and molestation of citizens in various police stations across the state and told the governor that as part of efforts to increase police presence in the state, 500 personnel had been posted to the state. Responding, Governor Obi said the decision to purchase 53 operational police vehicles for the police was informed by his resolve to make the state security stable.

“I earlier mentioned in my New Year broadcast that security of lives and property remained our number one priority in 2013. We believe we cannot deliver our vision even with aggressive Anambra Integrated Development Strategy (ANIDS), in an atmosphere of insecurity.” Obi further said, “in the light of the above, we are here today to deliver some security vehicles to the police. They include three armoured personnel carrier pick-up vehicles and 50 patrol vehicles fitted with communication gadgets.”

The governor also urged the IGP to increase number of police ar.3ea commands in the state to cover Ekwulobia, Umunze and Onitsha as well as more police stations to enable the police tackle the challenges of insecurity.

    Gov. Obi kudos 2 u. Bt beg police not 2 kill and detain innocent citizens. Unlike d case of a friend of mine who spend d xmas at okpoko police station.
    How can a suspect spent more than 72 hrs in police cell wit out being takin 2 court? Let the be neutral in service to d ppl of Anambra pls Bala Nasarawa take note.
