Joseph Mbu, Rivers State police commisionner has finally been sacked

Controversial Rivers State police commissioner, Mr Joseph Mbu, has finally been kicked out of office, a source at police headquarters in Abuja has confirmed to SaharaReporters. The source said the commissioner is expected to leave his post at the end of this week. However, the source added that the police hierarchy has made no public announcement of Mr. Mbu’s removal.

A police source told SaharaReporters that, barring any last-minute changes, Mr. Mbu will be sent to the National Institute for Strategic Studies (NIPSS) in Kuru, Jos as a face-saving measure.
Mr. Mbu has been accused of working to undermine Governor Chibuike Amaechi of Rivers State. The controversial commissioner had often provided cover to members of the political opposition in Rivers State who have sought to cause violence in the state by attempting to hijack the state assembly in an illicit bid to impeach Mr. Amaechi.
This  is coming on the heels of threats by opposition party All Progressives Congress (APC) to block all legislative proposals  until the political crisis in Rivers State is resolved.
