Ogoni Youths Appeal to IGP to Promote Bori DPO, SP Angbashim who was Pivotal in the Capture of Boboski, others

The President General of Ogoni Youth Federation (OYF) Legborsi Yamaabana has called on the Inspector General of Police (IGP) to promote the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Bori division SP Bako Angbashim to an Area Commander so that he can help tackle crimes within the four Local Government Areas of Ogoni land.
SP Angbashim holds a towering reputation amongst Ogoni dwellers as a result of his numerous reported successful onslaughts against criminals in the area. 

Sources had informed City News that he was pivotal in the arrest of the deceased suspected kidnap kingpin, Boboski a fortnight ago.

Legborsi made the appeal when he led some Ogoni youths leaders on a courtesy visit to the Rivers State Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan at the command headquarters at Moscow Road.

He said in the coming days, Ogoni youths will consult Gbo KABAARI Ogoni (the forum of Ogoni  elders and leaders of Thoughts) and the supreme council of Ogoni Traditional Rulers to send a strong delegation of Ogoni people to the IGP to consider retaining the services of CP Mukan as Rivers Commissioner of Police for another 3 years.

He said they will also appeal for - as a matter of necceessity - the accelerated promotion of the Bori DPO as Area commander in charge of Bori division or any other higher office.

Legborsi said the move became necessary to eliminate jurisdictional bottlenecks in the security operations in Ogoniland and the Rivers South East Senatorial District comprising Eleme, Andoni, Opobo/Nkoro, Gokana, Tai and Oyigbo Local Government Areas.

Earlier in his address, the youth leader had alleged that the late Boboski killed over 400 persons across Ogoniland.

In his response, CP Mukan said the next task for the police is to dismantle the renegades set up by Bobisky and other high profile criminals operating in Rivers state. He vowed to dismantle all hardened criminal gangs, adding that he has carefully picked SP Baka Angbashim to lead the team in trailing notorious criminal gangs.
