He maintained that Ibe Casmir is innocent of the allegation levelled against him.

The Imo State Police Command,

A philanthropist contracted the reconstruction project.

“The hoodlums, who believed that the re-establishment of a functional police station may prevent them from carrying out their nefarious acts in Orji and environ, decided to invade the construction site.

“Before the arrival of the reinforcement team, the hoodlums melted into the area of the neighbouring township but abandoned their operational vehicles. The Commissioner of Police, Imo State, CP Abutu Yaro, FDC personally led an enforcement team to the scene.
