Gov. Akpabio In Confusion As IGP Redeploys Akwa Ibom State Commissioner Of Police
The Inspector General of Police Suleiman Abba has ordered the redeployment of the Akwa Ibom State Commissioner of Police, Mr Gabriel Achong, to Abuja.
The redeployment is said to be connected to the role he allegedly played in the massive rigging that characterised the last elections in Akwa Ibom State.
You will recall last week that the news went viral of Governor Akpabio using the police commissioner and the Resident Electoral Officer in the State, Mr Austin Okojie, to perpetrate the rigging that gave over 900,000 votes to President Jonathan who eventually lost to Muhammadu Buhari of the APC.
Governor Akpabio is right now very panicky, if the fillers from Akwa Ibom are anything to go by, and he's been rushing to Abuja to see how he could mitigate the apparent crumbling of his plans to install Udom Gabriel Emmanuel as Akwa Ibom State governor in the next election.
Sources say that Mr Austin Okojie, the Akwa Ibom State REC could be given the Achong treatment before next Saturday's polls.
