Arase To IGP: Probe Competence Of State CPs Over Killing Of Officers In Delta, Imo State



Solomon Arase, the chairman of the Police Service Commission (PSC), has expressed concern and regret about the recent spike in police killings across the nation, particularly in the states of Delta and Imo.

Arase urged Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Kayode Egbetokun to reevaluate the capability of the nation’s state command leaderships.


The nation’s security community was recently rocked by tragedy when six police officers were killed in an ambush in Delta state.


There are still six missing officers.

The tragedy occurred in Okuama, Delta state, on March 14, when some youths killed eighteen army officers and personnel.


The police declared the loss of the “courageous officers” to be catastrophic.


There were four sergeants and two inspectors slain.


In order to prevent significant police casualties, Arase stated that there should be repercussions for the preventable tragedy. He also added that any state commissioner of police who is determined to be inept, disreputable, and tactically or operationally brittle should be removed.
