Dr Amadi Chima alias is Mazi Gburugburu has joined the league of prominent Nigerians to condemn the recent withdrawal of security personnel attached to Emeka Okonkwo aka E-money.
In a post made available through his official Twitter page, he said that there is more to the issue than what the police is telling Nigerians.
Read his post below;
I don’t know who the young man E-Money is, I don’t roll in his circles neither do I belong there. However, I find it befuddling that the Police High Command would withdraw the security operatives attached to him.
First, let me state herewith that I think it is crazy that Security personnel are attached to private citizens. It’s not only an aberration but an abuse of the noble objective of the police institution.
But since this abuse is rampant and has been ‘institutionalized’ by the police force itself, I will want to know the rationale behind the withdrawal of E-Money’s security escort over such flimsy excuse as using the police men “for domestic errands”.
Look, the IG should just tell us that he wants to renegotiate terms with the flamboyant young billionaire who I understand is generous with his money. I say this minded that I have seen policemen carryout odd errands for wives of very low ranking political office holders that contribute nothing to society but are a drain to the public purse.
Who has not seen the abuse of police officers drafted to Chinese illiterates whose stock in trade is the sabotage of our economy.
As you read this MC Oluomo has a Police Inspector as his Chief Security Officer with a retinue of other police men in his entourage.
Tell me, what is Oluomo’s contribution to the economy and to society? Are the ready forces of thugs available to Oluomo not enough to protect him?
If someone like E-Money who is actually contributing to society through the employment his businesses provide and whose philanthropic activities is well documented cannot benefit from police protection, then why would others that contribute nothing get a different treatment. He even has a valid reason to request for protection given the spate of kidnappings in the land and his public display of luxury. Launching an investigation into the source of his wealth is a different matter entirely.
If the police knew that his business was shady,why provide him with escort in the first instance? Were they not by that action legitimizing his business? Is this probe not in bad faith?Let the police come clean and stop this embarrassing red-herring. I was not born today.
