OBOSI community women have threatened to protest naked if the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Obosi Police Division, Alhaji Usman Ibrahim, a Superintendent of Police, is not immediately redeployed for alleged incompetence.
The women, under the aegis of ‘Obosi Concerned Women’, asked the state Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar, to replace Ibrahim with “a more humane and dedicated officer”, since he was unable to adequately police the area.
The threat is coming on the heels of alleged incessant killings in Obosi community, Idemili North local government area by unknown assassins.
It was learnt that between December 2018 to date, about four persons have been reportedly killed in mysterious circumstances and this has thrown people living in the area into a panic.
The leader of the women group, Mrs Elizabeth Ajanuonwu, told pressmen that the removal of Ibrahim was the only way to get to the root of the killings.
“The most feasible way to check the trend is to urgently redeploy the DPO in Obosi Division and bring in a more dedicated senior police officer to head the police station.
“Presently, cult groups such as Supreme Vikings Confraternity, Neo-black Movement, Eiye Confraternity, and similar groups have a freeway in the community due to inadequate policing”, she alleged.
The embattled DPO could not, however, be reached as at press time as he was said not to be on seat at the moment.
