This may not be best of times for the Cross River State Commissioner of Police, Mr. JIMOH OZI-OBEH as a high powered petition sent to the president, could kick him out of his job.
In a petition, exclusively obtained by Secret Reporters, it detailed the role which the Commissioner played, in subverting the cause of justice, when he ordered that kidnapped suspects be released.
The petition, amongst others, alleged criminal conspiracy, aiding, abetting and shielding kidnap suspects against the Commissioner of Police.
A copy of the petition, which was received at the Inspector General’s office, dated, September 20, 2016, has called for sanctions against the police boss.
The embattled commissioner, we learnt, had last week, set up a special committee, to investigate, how news of his shady deals in covering crimes at the command, got to the media.
According to independent sources at the, some of the police officers have expressed dissatisfaction, on the conduct of the CP, in handling high profile cases, brought to his attention for consideration, as some have also frowned at how the CP was able to release kidnap suspects, despite overwhelming evidence against them at the end of investigation.
Our findings shows that, there is currently a ploy by the CP, to discipline all the officers, who had investigated the kidnap case, as he suspects they gave out official information from the command, which ought to be kept in secret, after his failed attempt to doctor a police report, which was earlier written by the IPO.
