Divisional Police Officer (DPO) In Anambra Resigns Over Posting To Crises-torn Chibok

Confusion and tension ensued in the Anambra State command of the Nigeria Police on Wednesday, as some policemen from the Command were transferred to the crisis-torn North-East.

Police officers who were transferred to Borno and Adamawa threatened resignation, while a Dvisional Police Officer (DPO) from Anaku Division, in Ayemelum Local Government Area (names withheld), resigned.

The DPO was said to be due for retirement February 2015, but was posted to Chibok in Borno State as DPO and was heard saying it would be better for him to go home in peace than in pieces since his retirement was at hand.

The move shocked the state police command, as many who were transferred to Sokoto and Bauchi states  were considering the option of resignation.

All efforts to speak with the state Commissioner of Police, Mr Usman Gwarry was not successful and the Police Pubic Relations Officer (PPRO), who would have spoken on his behalf was said to have been transferred to Sokoto and was running around.
