Rivers State: Joseph Mbu removed as CP

Joseph Mbu

The Police Service Commission has approved the recommendations of the Inspector-General of Police for the redeployment of Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mbu. 

Mbu has been transferred to Abuja where he will act as the new Federal Capital Territory Commissioner of Police.

Also, the Commissioner in charge of the Special Fraud Unit, Johnson Ogunshakin, has been redeployed to Rivers State to replace Mbu as the new Commissioner of Police.


The redeployment affects thirteen (13) Commissioners of Police who have been moved to various Commands nationwide.

Mbu has been at the centre of the crisis rocking the political scene in Rivers State and has been at loggerheads with the state government, which had accused the police boss of being partisan with regards to State politics.

The All Progressives Congress, APC and the Rivers State Governor, Rotimi Amaechi, have consistently called for the removal of Mr Joseph Mbu, accusing him of being used to frustrate the Governor and the emergence of the APC in the Niger-Delta state.

The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Sir Mike Mbama Okiro, admonished the newly redeployed officers to put in their best in their various Commands’ operations, so as to provide a secure environment for business and life to thrive.
