We are not aware of Court Judgment asking IGP to arrest CP – Police Command
The Anambra State Police Command has said that it is not aware of any court judgement that sentenced the State Commissioner of Police, CP Echeng, Echeng to prison over the Command’s refusal to comply with a court order to release a Kidnapped child to his parents.
It will be recalled that many reports have claimed that the Delta State High Court presided over by Hon. Justice C.O Emifoniye had convicted the Anambra State Commissioner of Police, Echeng, Echeng and sent him to prison over refusal to obey court order.
The reports say that one
Pastor Henry Osah with a suit No: HCO/44/2021 was the one that dragged the Commissioner of Police before the Delta High court.
The man had reportedly urged the court to order the State Police Command to free his kidnapped child who was found in an orphanage home in Anambra State.
Delivering the judgment on Wednesday, December 2022, Justice C.O Emifoniye ordered the Inspector General Of Police to arrest the Anambra State Commissioner of Police and Inspector Kingsley Umeh and transport them from Anambra State to the Kwale Prisons, Delta State within one week.
But the spokesperson of the Anambra State police command, DSP Ikenga Tochukwu, in a statement made available to journalists in Awka on Saturday, disclosed that the command is not aware of the Delta High Court judgement.
The Statement reads in part; “The Anambra State Police Command wishes to state emphatically that the Command is not aware and is yet to receive any order committing the Commissioner of Police Anambra State Command to a Correctional Center.
Therefore, the Command is constrained to make further comments please” he said.
