‘Stop making Police officers’ Wives Widows’ – Arase decries killing of Policemen in by gunmen

The Chairman of the Police Service Commission, Solomon Arase, has decried the rising spate of killings of police operatives in the South East, saying wives of police officers in the region are fast becoming widows due to the consistent killing.

According to a statement issued by the Head, Press and Public Relations, Ikechukwu Ani, the PSC chair expressed concern over the development when leaders of Ohanaeze Ndigbo, Federal Capital Territory (FCT) chapter, paid him a courtesy visit in Abuja.

“You should let the killers know that the police is not their enemy. They have not done anything wrong. The Force have lost quite a number of serving officers in the South East.

“We are your friends, stop making police wives widows, they are your sisters,” Arase said.


He said the Commission has resolved the perceived marginalisation of the zone in police representation in the country.

Earlier, the leader of the Ohanaeze delegation, Elder Onwu Arua, noted that the association is worried that people of the South East are not showing interest in the ongoing police recruitment exercise.

He urged the PSC to decide ways of addressing the problem.
