The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Rivers State, has raised the alarm over alleged plans by the Presidency to transfer the state commissioner of police, Mr Johnson Tunde Ogunsakin.

The Chairman of APC in the state, Dr Davies Ibiamu Ikanya, who raised the alarm in a statement in Port Harcourt, yesterday, said the plot was coming just at a time Ogunsakin was beginning to settle down in the state.

Ikanya said, 'We are reliably informed that arrangements have been concluded by the Presidency and the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to redeploy CP Ogunsakin barely three months after his transfer to Rivers State just because he has refused to play their deadly politics since he assumed office and instead demonstrated that he is a core police officer.

'We will like to reiterate that we will resist the transfer of CP Ogunsakin through every legal means available to us. We need peace in Rivers State and the current commissioner of police has demonstrated that he is a thorough police officer and we are okay with his efforts to sustain the peace in Rivers State. We don't need another CP Mbu an obvious PDP member in Rivers State to take us back to the terrible route we only survived by the grace of God.'
