Abia State Commissioner of Police, Janeth Agbede, has commended the Coalition of Business Groups Association of Nigeria (COBGAN) for choosing to use their public relations to rehabilitate the Zone 6, police annexe, which was destroyed by hoodlums during the #EndSARS protest in Aba, Abia state.
Mrs. Agbede gave the approval, while hosting a delegation from COBGAN led by Ambassador Darlington Kalu, who were at the Abia police headquarters, Umuahia, to commensurate with the Inspector General of Police on the wanton destruction of lives and property during the #EndSARS protest.
The Abia police commissioner urged the officer in charge of the station to validate the extent of damage on the facility so that renovation could commence.
This is even as she also approved COBGAN and its partners’ request, to establish Abia community neighborhood watch to support the police in securing Aba and Abians properly.
The commissioner thanked the delegation for being the first of such groups in the state to commiserate with the Inspector General of Police on the killing of two of its personnel and burning of one of its stations in Aba, the commercial hub of Abia State.
She explained that the police family was in deep shock over what happened in October, 2020, noting that one of the slain police officers had 7 children.
She also thanked the team for their loyalty to the Nigeria police, stressing that their visit had strengthened their partnership.
She promised to sustain the Police/public town hall meeting in the state, where security and economic issues would be discussed.
