PORT HARCOURT — Rivers State Police Command, has declared the ADC to the state governor, Mr. Chibuike Amaechi, ASP Seimeikumo Debewari as a deserter.
The police also removed Debewari as the ADC to Governor Amaechi.
The state Police Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Mbu, in a statement, said that Debewari had refused to honour an invitation extended to him by the state Police Commissioner and the Inspector General of Police.
It will be recalled that Debewari was invited by the Police over issues relating to the recent fracas on the floor of the state House of Assembly.
The statement by the Assistant Commissioner of Police Admin, Mr. Austine Sanomi, said that the whereabouts of Debewari had remained unknown to the Police after the incident on the floor of the House of Assembly on July 10 this year.
“Rivers State Police Command wishes to inform the general public that acting ASP Debewari, who had ignored all lawful directives to see the Commissioner of Police and the Inspector General has not been neither seen in Rivers State Command nor at the Police Force headquarters, Abuja since July 10, 2013.
“His whereabouts is currently unknown to the Nigerian Police Force, consequently he ceases to be the ADC to the Rivers State governor.
“As the CP Rivers State Command and by the powers conferred on me by section 398(1) of the Police Act and regulation cap 359 laws of the Federation of Nigeria 1990, the officer is hereby, declared a deserter from the Nigeria Police Force subject to the approval of the IG,” he said.
