The Governor of Rivers state, Rotimi Amaechi has spoken out against the state’s former Commissioner of Police, Mbu Joseph Mbu
The turf war between Rivers state Governor, Rotimi Amaechi and the state’s former Commissioner of Police, Mbu Joseph Mbu might have ended, but the war of words continues.
Amaechi has reacted to Mbu’s claims that he “tamed” him (Amaechi) during his (Mbu’s) tenure in the state.
The governor blasted the former commissioner calling him a puppet who is controlled by a woman.
Amaechi spoke his mind via a statement released yesterday, September 16, 2014 on his behalf by his media aide, David Iyofor.
“Indeed it’s very sad, pathetic, however ironic that Mbu called himself a lion. Which lion? This character call Mbu Joseph Mbu completely lacks the courage, steel and strength of character of a lion. Rather he’s a shameless, corrupt puppet of a woman.”
“This is a man paid by taxpayers to protect, secure and serve the interests of the people. But when he was in Rivers State, he spurned the people, he trampled on the masses and rather elected to be the partisan servant of one woman, to be the woman’s tool in causing disaffection, confusion and crises in Rivers State. Mbu shamelessly and corruptly turned himself into the toothless attack dog of this woman to fight the government and people of Rivers State.”
“How can a man who has no strength of character to be himself, be a man and stand up to a woman, a man who willingly submits himself to serve as the puppet of a woman call himself a lion?
How ironic! Mr. Mbu, no lion behaves like that! You are a disgrace and shame to the Nigerian Police Force.”
“All these, Mbu did because he was the puppet of one woman, a woman who clearly has no constitutional role to play in the governance of Rivers State or Nigeria,”
“Mr. Mbu’s only claim to fame and prominence is because he has turned himself into a willing tool and servant of this woman. Mbu is a very bad example of a police officer.”
Joseph Mbu has been relocated to the Federal Capital Territory and is now serving as Commissioner there.
