Less than twenty four hours after the commissioner of police in Abia state, Etim Okon joined the DIG in charge of south East, Anthony Ogbizi to speak on the strategies and level of preparedness of the state command for the governorship and House of Assembly elections scheduled for Saturday the 9th of March, 2019, a fresh CP, Awosola Awotinde has been sent to take over from him.
Awotinde upon arrival met with heads of all the sister security agencies at the police headquarters in Umuahia to familiarize with them as the new CP.
He also called on the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Dr. Joseph Iloh to acquaint him with the development and possibly give him assurances of the police commitment to work.
In an interview, the CP stated that he has no problems getting the job done as a professional irrespective of location.
He also solicited the cooperation of sister agencies in the discharge of their duties in the Saturday’s elections.
Meanwhile, Etim Okon has been moved to Ebonyi state where Awotinde came from to replace him.
