By Praise Necherem A group of women in Anambra state have called for the immediate redeployment of the divisional police officer, Obosi police division, SP Usman Ibrahim Oboshi over alleged incompetency.
The women, under the umbrella of “Obosi Concerned Women”, asked the state commissioner of police, Garba Umar, to replace him with “a more humane and dedicated officer”, claiming he was unable to adequately police the area.
They threatened to demonstrate naked at the Anambra state police headquarters in Awka if the DPO was not redeployed and replaced within a short time. The warning came on the heels of alleged incessant killings in Obosi community, Idemili North local government area by unknown assailants.
Orient Weekend reliably gathered that between December, 2018 to date, about four persons have been reportedly killed in mysterious circumstances throwing the residents of the area into panic. Addressing newsmen, Leader of the group, Mrs. Elizabeth Ajanuonwu, insisted that the removal of the police boss was the only way
to resolve the impasse. “The most feasible way to check the trend is to urgently redeploy the DPO in Obosi division and bring in a more dedicated senior police officer to head the police station.
“Presently, cult groups such as supreme Vikings Confraternity, Neo-black Movement, Eiye Confraternity, and similar groups have freeway in the community due to inadequate policing.” Efforts to reach the embattled DPO failed as his subordinates told our correspondent during visit to his office that their boss was not on seat.
