Deltans Want IGP to Remove Ibrahim Zanna
The people of Delta State have called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) Idris Ibrahim to as matter of urgency remove the State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Zanna over insecurity rocking the state.
Deltans lamented that armed robbers have taken over the state, killing, rapping, kidnapping people and snatching vehicles uninterrupted almost on a daily bases, insisting to IGP that the commissioner is not fit to handle the security challenge in the State.
Chief Uchendu Ikpaja, who spoke to XCLUSIVE MAGAZINE reporter in Asaba, said that a Divisional Police Officer of ‘C’ Division, Asaba, SP Valentine Mbalu was recently kidnapped on a Sunday around Igbodo town along the Benin-Onitsha expressway. Chief Ikpaja noted that the Divisional Police Officer was later killed by the abductors saying that the level of insecurity in the state was alarming.
It would be recalled that SP Mbalu was abducted while returning from Agbor, Ika South Local Government Area of the state to Asaba when gunmen attacked him. It was reported that the hoodlums were said to have intercepted his Mercedes Benz, and ordered him out on gun point before hauling him into a waiting vehicle which they drove and headed to unknown destination.
Few weeks later again, Ughelli Area commander, ACP Usman Ndanbabo was attacked one fateful Sunday by unknown gunmen at about 8pm while returning from outing and he died after two days at Warri hospital.
An Asaba based businessman, Mr. Uche Akanta traders also lamented that they are being attacked and “we have reported severally to different police station and no action was taken to arrest the ugly situation.”
Mr. Akanta said that recently, one of them (trader) was murdered at the compound of United Bank for Africa (UBA) close to the popular Ibusa junction, Asaba by the evil armed robbers while trying to deposit money.
“We are now sleeping with our two eye open, the insecurity in the state is on the high side. The annoying part of it is that Police in the state are comfortable with the situation. Residents are living in fear. In fact, people are no longer safe,” he lamented.
