An Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) names withheld at the Nnewi Central Police Station in Anambra State yesterday slumped and was rushed to hospital.
The officer collapsed upon receiving news of his transfer to Borno State, where hundreds of lives and properties have been lost to the Boko Haram insurgency. According to sources, the ASP had only one year more in the service. About 150 police officers in Anambra State have been transferred out of the state.
Investigation showed that the officers were transferred to Borno, Sokoto, Nasarawa, Bauchi, Plateau, Yobe and Adamawa states. Speaking with New Telegraph, some of the affected officers, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the transfer was targeted at southern officers in the force, especially the Igbo.
New Telegraph learnt that Governor Willie Obiano had petitioned the police authorities demanding the transfer of certain category of police officer out of the state, following their alleged complicity in criminal activities, especially kidnapping.
On assumption of office, Obiano had declared war against all forms of criminality in the state, necessitating him to launch “operation kpochapu” (wipe out). It was reliably gathered that Obiano was advised by a top security agency to seek the transfer of such police officers following the increasing crime rate in the state.
