Policemen Attached To EFCC Shun Meeting With Okiro

Some 300 police personnel attached to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday failed to attend the meeting earlier called by the Inspector-General of Police, Mike Okiro.

Police authorities had last week directed all police personnel attached to the EFCC to report to the Force Headquarters, Abuja, for briefing.

News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the briefing could not hold as neither the EFCC Chairman, Nuhu Ribadu, nor any of its operatives reported for the meeting.

“The meeting was scheduled to commence at 10.00am, but you can see that it is 2.00pm and none of them is here,” a senior police officer told NAN.

Following the development, Okiro met with the police management to discuss the next line of action.

After the meeting, Okiro said he had directed that another letter, inviting the personnel for a briefing, be sent to the commission today.

Ribadu was nominated by Okiro to attend a 12-month Senior Management Course at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru near Jos.


One response to “Policemen Attached To EFCC Shun Meeting With Okiro

  1. Mr. Okiro acts like an errant boy and suspiciously too. Why has Okiro not eyt retired ? Mr Okiro by my observations
    seems to be jealous of Ribadu’s national
    and International fame and the only way to
    curb it is to clip Ribadu’s wings.
    My suspicion is Okiro could be acting on other
    suspected crminals’ interests and nothing stops
    the said criminals who grudge Ribadu for using
    his portfolio to insult, annihilate and embarrass
    them with detaintions from killing Ribadu now
    \he might no longer be protected by the Security
    Operatives. Is Okiro aware of this fact ?
    Nevertheless, all eyes are now on Okiro, Ribadu
    and the President of Nigeria. Those concerned
    may one day express that they wished that Ribadu would have left alone to finish with the
    criminal governors who contributed to the
    death of so many hardworking retired Nigerians
    including teachers and pensioneers. I wish there
    could be death sentences for corrupt politicians
    like in China to serve as deterent.
