– Establish Fire Service In Fed. Constituencies
Rt. Hon. Collins Chiji, Imo Speaker and other lawmakers have ordered the Imo State Police Commissioner, Ladodo, to start a retraining for police officers in the state so as to refresh them on their primary duty of protecting the citizens and not kill them.
Also, they asked the clerk to send a letter to Rt. Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, Imo State Governor, to build fire service in every federal constituency.
This was as a result of a motion raised by Barr. Kennedy Ibeh, Member representation Obowo State Constituency, over the killing of Ikenna Ukachi, 25, by an unknown police man on July 1, 2019. Also, he said that the people burnt the police station out of anger. That efforts made to put off the fire didn’t work as a result of no water. He therefore appealed to the House to beckon on Ihedioha to establish a fire service on the federal constituencies. The motion was seconded by Hon. Chidi Ogbunikpa, member representing Okigwe State Constituency.
Both Hon. Obinna Okwara of Nkwere State Constituency and Hon. Eddy Obinna of Aboh Mbaise State Constituency, spoke extensively on it.
