CP John B. Abang

The report is absolutely false and unfounded.
The attention of the Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to a misleading report trending on the social media with the above caption allegedly credited to one Justus Uche Ijeoma,Esq of a Human Rights Foundation with the acronym “International Human Rights and Equity Defense Foundation(I-REF)”The petition which was dated 29/4/2020 alleged that the Commissioner of Police CP John B.Abang,fdc has withdrawn the Orderly of Hon Justice T.U Oguji following the “judgement awarded against the Command by the said judge on the 27/4/2020”
However, the authors of the post are being outright mischievous and probably out to settle personal scores which the Commissioner of Police is not aware of.

The fact in issue is that, recently the command carried out reorganization of Rank/Files who have spent two years and above at a particular Police station or formation. This routine reschuflement affected many judges and magistrates across the State. Thereafter the noticed dislocations of this move were corrected when the affected Hon judges who drew the attention of the Command to such moves were immediately attended to. It was not a punitive measure aimed at any one or even the judge in the above post. It may interest the public to know that The CJ of Anambra State is aware of this and he even approached the Commissioner of Police to make amends which he gladly obliged.

Meanwhile,the CP also directed the DPO Inland town Division under whose jurisdiction the Hon Judge reside to personally visit the judge with the replacement and if he insist on his former orderly the DPO should restore him back
Consequently,the Command is not even aware that a judgement was made or that the Hon Judge was handling any case involving the Police. It’s also unfortunate that the author(s) of the above post didn’t make any effort to make a formal enquiry in order to enable them take an informed decision but rather took to social media to cast aspersions on the Commissioner of Police who is working assiduously in order to provide safety and security in Anambra State which are glaring since his assumption of duty as the Commissioner of Police in the State.

Furthermore,the Commissioner of Police CP John B.Abang ,fdc bear no grudges against any person but see this distraction as the price of selfless Service one pays while discharging his duties diligently.The report is therefore a figment of the imagination of the writers.
In view of the foregoing, the Commissioner of Police CP John B.Abang,fdc urges the public to disregard the report and further assures them that he will continue to serve and protect the Citizens with integrity and in accordance with internationally acceptable best practices.
