Mr Joseph Mbu, the outgoing Assistant Inspector General of Police for Zone 7, yesterday promised to respond to allegations by the All Progressives Congress (APC) that he was deployed to Zone 2 for a political hatchet job, at the appropriate time.
Mbu made the remark in Abuja while reacting to questions during an interaction with newsmen.
Zone 2 comprises Lagos and Ogun states.
27 AIGs were redeployed to other zones, departments and formations across the country.
He said: “I reserve my comment on the spurious allegation by the APC in Lagos State; I will not say the APC in general.
“At the appropriate time, I will respond to this allegation.
“I am not going to Lagos to fight, but I will not tolerate lawlessness.”
Mbu also dismissed insinuation that he is a controversial officer, saying “I am not controversial.”
“I love my job; I am very proud of my job and I do my job very well. I am not afraid of anybody in the execution of my job.
“Anywhere I go, I am not a politician.The enemy of a governor or minister is not my enemy. The enemy of anybody is not my enemy.”
