The Abia state police command has arrested five male suspects in Umuahia, Abia State, who allegedly attacked a Deputy Superintendent of Police on election duties  at a collation centre.

Similarly, a gang attacked a Deputy Commissioner of Police in Brass, Bayelsa State,  on Sunday.

On account of these unwarranted actions, the acting Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the arrest, investigation and  prosecution of those  behind the  developments.

In  a statement on Monday by Force spokesman, Frank Mba,  the IG, who condemned  the incidents, said “such brazen acts of impunity will not be condoned”.

He said, “These attacks have once again highlighted the risks and hazards inherent in policing in our country, and the need for stakeholders and government at all levels to continue to support the police  in the discharge of their responsibilities.”

However, Adamu  said  the DCP and DSP were  in good health.

The Bayelsa Police Command on Monday  said the DCP, whose name it did not disclose,  was manhandled by thugs.

 Spokesman for the police in the state, Asinim Butswat,  in Yenagoa said that the IG  was not happy with  the development.

 He said,    “The acting IG has sent a delegation led by the Deputy Inspector-General Elections, South-South,  Fredrick Lakanu, for an on-the-spot assessment of the situation.”

According to Butswat, the DIG, while addressing senior officers, condemned the attack.

The spokesman added that Lakanu also ordered the  state  Commissioner of Police  to deploy more officers in all flashpoints in the state to forestall any break down of law and order.
