A new Commissioner of Police has subsequently been appointed for Enugu state, he is CP Emmanuel Ojukwu. Until his appointment, CP Ojukwu was the Commissioner of Police, Eastern Port Command. He was at one time the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State.

CP Ojukwu had also served as the Force Public Relations officer of the Nigerian Police and the officer in charge criminal investigations at Zone 7 Police headquarters, Abuja in the past.

Vanguard gathered that the redeployment may not be unconnected with the disclosure by the Enugu State governor,Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi , that he had intelligence information that the herdsmen would strike in the community and passed the information to the security agencies.

When contacted, Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olabisi Kolawole confirmed the redeployment of the officer by Force headquarters.
