Fear has reportedly gripped senior top police officers, including the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. M.D. Abubakar over the planned unprecedented shake-up in the Nigeria Police.
Saturday Tribune learnt that anxiety followed scores of petitions signed and supported with court affidavits as well as anonymous ones being received daily against senior officers by the Parry Osayande panel on re-organisation of the Nigeria Police recently put in place by President Goodluck Jonathan.
“We have scores of petitions flooding the committee on daily basis against the officers even including the Acting Inspector General of Police, Abubakar himself, most of the petitions were being directed against senior officers especially those in the ranks of Deputy Commissioners, Commissioners and Assistant Inspectors General of Police, detailing their various offences with necessary data to back up their claims against the officers,” a source close to the committee told Saturday Tribune in Abuja on Friday.
