South East Governors, Senators and Very Important Personality (VIPs) in all the South Eastern states and Rivers State may have to employ other security services or private security guards for their own safety following the directive by the Nigeria Police Force to withdraw its men from them.
The VIPs affected by the directives includes Governors, Senators, public office holders and high profile personalities in the South Eastern States, and one State in the South-southern part of Nigeria. This move was arrived at following the continuous attacks on the police infrastructure and its men by hoodlums, who have been unleashing terror on police stations, carting away arms and ammunitions.
The incessant attack on the police formation has been blamed on the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) and its security outfit Eastern Security Network (ESN), though the group has been denying the allegation.
According to Daily Post, the directive was seen in a police wireless message shared by The Whistler. It was said to be issued by the Commissioner of Police, Asaba, Delta State just as DSP Edafe Bright, the command’s spokesperson confirm the genuineness of the directive.
The six States affected by the new directive includes Abia State, Anambra State, Ebonyi State, Enugu State, Imo State and Rivers State. It advice its men to obey the directive of not escorting any VIP into the affected state until the security situation in those states improves.
