New police commissioner says he is not in the state to fight Fayose
Chafe said he was in Ekiti State to perform his constitutional role as a police officer.
Chafe, who assumed office last week, said in his maiden press conference in Ado Ekiti that he was also not in the state to fight the Governor, Mr Ayo Fayose.
He was reacting to concerns expressed by some Ekiti elders, who accused the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, of transferring the former Commissioner of Police, Mr Wilson Inalegwu, to Kogi State without the knowledge of Gov. Fayose.
“My mission in Ekiti is to sanitize it and make it a no-go-area for criminals, so that investors can see the state as a safe haven.
“I am not here acting under any instruction to fight anybody. I never knew there was any election coming anytime soon until I arrived and was briefed,” he said.
Chafe promised to sustain all the anti-crime strategies and structures already put in place by his predecessor, to combat crime.
He promised to work together with various unions and administrators of tertiary institutions in Ekiti State against disruption of public peace, cultism and fraudsters.
The commissioner said his men would sustain the raids on black spots in Ado Ekiti and motor parks to check crime.
