A group of women in Obosi community, Idemili North local government area of Anambra State has decried incessant killings in the area by unknown assailants.
The women, under the umbrella of “Obosi Concerned Women,” called for immediate redeployment of the Divisional Police Officer, Obosi Police Division, SP Usman Ibrahim Oboshi over alleged incompetence.
Speaking through their leader, Mrs. Elizabeth Ajanuonwu, the aggrieved women threatened to demonstrate naked at the State police headquarters if the DPO was not redeployed and replaced within a short time.
They asked the Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar, to replace him with “a more humane and dedicated officer”, claiming he has been unable to adequately police the area.
She insisted the removal of the police boss was the only way to resolve the impasse.
According to her: “Presently, cult groups such as Supreme Vikings Confraternity, Neo-black Movement, Eiye Confraternity, and similar groups have freeway in the community due to inadequate policing.
“The most feasible way to check the trend is to urgently redeploy the DPO in Obosi Division and bring in a more dedicated senior police officer to head the police station.”
