PSC Chairman Arase condoles IG of Police, condemns killing of DPO in Rivers

The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Dr. Solomon Arase, has condemned the gruesome murder and beheading of a Divisional Police Officer (DPO) of Ahoada in Rivers State, SP Bako Angbashim.

Arase described the killing as wicked, saying the murder of the gallant officer who fought till the end to save the Odumude community will not in any way extinguish the indomitable fighting spirit of the police against social disorders.

In a statement by Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of the commission, Arase promised that the Commission will do everything within its constitutional powers to support and encourage the police to ensure that the criminals are apprehended and brought to justice.

“We will stand with the police to also ensure that there is no repeat of this barbaric act and will also encourage a proactive intelligence gathering and sharing so as to always arrest this kind of ambush,” he noted.
