Ogbonnaya Akoma

The police in Arochukwu divisional headquarters, under the leadership of the Abam-born officer, Igodo Agwu Kalu, an amiable fellow, has been doing everything to see that people should always choose the part of peace and amicable resolutions of minor social conflicts within themselves   instead of escalating such conflicts that will attract the attention of the police

Speaking to Aro News at the police station in Arochukwu during an interactive session, Mr Kalu also indicated that with the help of the Arochukwu TC chairman, Hon Amah Abraham Nnana, the police in the area has been able to renovate the cells that were bad and contained holes, or were dilapidated. He pledged to continue to serve the people of the area diligently to the best of his ability.

The highly educated and polished police officer disclosed that the division needed more hands for effective rendition of police services to the people of Arochukwu, and in the police posts scattered in the LGA. He disclosed that many of the ten policemen recently posted to the division were yet to report.

Meanwhile, the misunderstanding between the tipper workers’ union members and one of their vice chairmen, James Okoronkwo Kalu (of Obiene, Ututu) which was brought to the police had been referred to the tipper workers themselves to go home and resolve their differences within themselves and then report back to the police on the issue after agreeing to do so in writing.

Two of the union members, Nnanna Ukpabi and Mazi Udonsi Owen (Eze Ndi Owuu, Ibom, Arochukwu) had, on Thursday, 24 November 2016, given assurance that the two parties would resolve the conflict amicably within days of taking the case home.
