Reports reaching 9jareporters going by the posting of police personnel in Delta State is alarming and against the spirit of oneness and unity according to the Delta Intelligence Group.
The Delta Intelligence Group, released a statement to the effect and also petitioned the Inspector General of Police which is reproduce below:
Loius Edet House,
ALARMING PREPONDERANCE UPSURGE OF POLICE PERSONNEL OF IBO EXTRACTION IN EVERY DELTA POLICE DIVISION AND AREA COMMAND IN DELTA STATE.
Our attention has caught a new wave of postings of police personnel to the various divisions and area commands making up the Delta state police command in the past few months and running.
The emerging and disturbing statistics indicate that there are more preponderant of police personnel of Ibo extraction than other ethnic nationalities in the state police structure now.
While such a phenomenon could have passed as innocuous coincidence, but in an election circle where ethnic Ibo sentiments of zoning and retention of power has been ratcheted to an absurd height, not to appraise this exodus of Ibo policemen to Delta state as politically motivated would be sleepwalking.
We are impressed with the conscious policy initiative witnessed in the police force since you assumed leadership of the Nigeria police. However, the enormous manpower strength of the force and territorial spread, could allow unconscionable officers to promote ethnic agenda that does not enjoy the approval of your office.
Furthermore, Governor Okowa has recruited the services of all the Youth Presidents of all communities in the whole twenty-five local government area of Delta State as Youth Ambassadors to act as Shields for all the mercenaries and killer squads they plan to import from the neighbouring states purposely for the governorship election.
We view this influx of Igbo police personnel and mercenaries to Delta state as one of such sinister move designed to use your personnel to advance the electoral fortune of Governor Ifeanyi Okowa, the PDP candidate who is of Igbo extraction against the APC candidate, Great Ogboru of Urhobo extraction.
In the interest of fair play in the upcoming election which is very important to our party and the country, we respectfully implore you to carry out a forensic investigation with a view to revising the lopsidedness and bring officers responsible for the untoward act to justice.
Above all, we demand for the redeployment of the De State Police Commissioner and all the Area commanders who are well known as the Governor Okowa’s Security Operations Commanders.
We assure you as always of our commitment to support the Nigeria Police in the discharge of their constitutional duties.
Delta Intelligence Group.
