Umahi: Performance of Police in Ebonyi disappointing

Umahi resigns as chairman of South East Security Committee

David Umahi, the governor of Ebonyi State says performance of the Nigerian Police in the state has been disappointing lately, as he nearly lost confidence in the force.

Umahi disclosed this on Wednesday while receiving Mr Aliyu Garba, the newly deployed Commissioner of Police for the state.

“I nearly severed my relationship with the police, but was restrained by the integrity of its Inspector General.

“How can police officers be inside their offices and hoodlums would attack them and collect their guns?

“This happened more than three times under the same commissioner of police and it is unfortunate.

“Cultists would be arrested and three or four days later, they are released into the society to further cause problems,”.

Umahi urged the new CP to work with the state government to tackle the rising crime in the state

“You are coming at a very trying moment in the state and should deal decisively with anyone instigating insecurity in the name of political party”.
