Community women threaten nude protest, demands removal of DPO over killings

A group of women in Anambra State have called for the immediate
redeployment of the Divisional Police Officer, Obosi Police Division,
SP Usman Ibrahim Oboshi over alleged incompetence.

The women, under the umbrella of "Obosi Concerned Women", asked the
state Commissioner of Police, Garba Umar, to replace him with "a more
humane and dedicated officer", claiming he was unable to adequately
police the area.

They threatened to demonstrate naked at the Anambra State police
headquarters in Awka if the DPO was not redeployed and replaced within
a short time.

The warning came on the heels of alleged incessant killings in Obosi
community, Idemili North Local Government Area by unknown assailants.

DAILY POST reliably gathered that between December, 2018 to date,
about four persons have been reportedly killed in mysterious
circumstances, throwing residents of the area into panic.

Addressing newsmen, leader of the women group, Mrs. Elizabeth
Ajanuonwu, insisted that the removal of the police boss was the only
way to resolve the impasse.

She said, "The most feasible way to check the trend is to urgently
redeploy the DPO in Obosi Division and bring in a more dedicated
senior police officer to head the police station.

"Presently, cult groups such as Supreme Vikings Confraternity,
Neo-black Movement, Aiye Confraternity, and similar groups have
freeway in the community due to inadequate policing."

Efforts to reach the embattled DPO failed. A police officer, a
subordinate of the embattled DPO who declined identification told our
correspondent during a visit to his office that their boss was not on

"If you come back in the evening, he will be here. I can not speak to
you, nor can anyone here. Come back in the evening, then you will hear
from him himself," he said.
