Police Withdraw Aminu Tambuwal’s Security Detail

This is one of the shocking news I have come across in Nigeria politics of late. Yesterday, 30th 0f October, the Acting-Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has ordered the withdrawal of security detail attached to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal.

The order is contained in a statement issued on Thursday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu.

The statement reads: “In view of the recent defection by the Right Honourable Aminu Waziri Tambuwal, the Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All Progressives Congress (APC).

“Having regard to the clear provision of section 68(1) (g) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as amended, the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has redeployed its personnel attached to his office.

I can't believe that constitution is now more important than saving lifes in this country.
