The CP said this during a visit of the District Governor, Rotary International, District 9125, Mr. Mbanefo Nnoka, and his team to the command headquarters.

He disclosed that, although the allegation was false, unfounded and untrue, the command redeployed the policemen to avoid needless rift.
He added that no one had come forward with information and evidence to indict any police officer in the state for selling suspects to ritual killers.

According to him, “But we have been redeploying the policemen there. More than half of them have now been transferred and soon, the other half will be redeployed so that even if there is anybody who is involved – which no information has established – we will at least remove him from the area.”
