NairaMedia:
Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers on Monday, killed a mobile police officer at Garrision roundabout, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

Eyewitnesses said the gunmen had trailed the company vehicle the police officer was escorting from a bank.


“The incident happened in the afternoon. The vehicle the police officer was escorting was at Garrison when another vehicle barricaded it. Two men came out from the vehicle and made straight to where the Police Officer was sitting and opened fire on him.”

“They shot him severally and the man died on the spot. They went to the boot of the vehicle and carried the money. The driver and one other person in the vehicle sustained bullet injuries and were taken to hospital,” he said.


Spokesperson for the State Police Command, Nnamdi Omoni, has confirmed the incident.

If gun men can kill an escort officer were does that leave ordinary citizens? but if the Officer was busy doing his Job catching criminals rather than Escorting rich Nigerians. maybe he would have caught the gun criminals who killed him Earlier.

Because of 5000 naira he woulda got paid. now he is dead . Good riddance.

is the governor in charge of the security apparatus in the state ? The irony and contradiction in our bastard Federalism is the labeling of state governors as Chief Security Officer of their states. Now I'm compelled to ask the fundamental question: Do the state governor have absolute and total control of the police in their domain? Also, the last time I checked my 1999 constitution as amended issues of security falls within the exclusive legislative list.

So any one that accuses the Federal government of failing to provide security isn't making mistake. After all the Boko Haram menace and the inability of the previous government in addressing it formed the basis of the criticism by the APC on Pres. Jonathan.

The issue in contention is whether the State governors have "absolute" control on the Nigeria police.

Secondly, there is even a proviso in the said Clause where the Commissioner of Police will have to seek authorization from those at the top before carrying out certain directive of the state governors.

So that in itself has given credence to my earlier assertion that the State governors do not have total control over the police in their domain. And to that extent shouldnt be blamed for any security infraction.

You are aware of the Mbu saga in Rivers state and what played out in the Akwa Ibom House of Assembly late last year where the Police clearly pander to the whims and caprices of the some influential APC big weight. At some point during Jonathan's adminstration, the Bornu State governor Mr. Shettima keep blaming the later for not doing anything to curtail the Boko Haram menance. Lastly, why was the chibok girls incident heaped squarely at the door step of the president Jonathan, when clearly there was a governor incharge of Bornu State?
