TREND­ING AIG Mbu ap­pears be­fore rights com­mis­sion…>>

Daily Trust - - YOUTHVILLE -

As­sis­tant In­spec­torGen­eral of Po­lice, Joseph Mbu on Wed­nes­day ap­peared at the Na­tional Hu­man Rights Com­mis­sion (NHRC) in Abuja to de­fend an al­le­ga­tion against him of tor­ture, threat to life and abuse of hu­man rights.

Mbu was re­ported to fi­nally ap­pear af­ter pre­vi­ous sum­mons as the Ex­ec­u­tive Sec­re­tary, NHRC, Prof. Bem Angwe told jour­nal­ists that Mbu hon­oured the last in­vi­ta­tion.

But Mbu said his re­fusal to turn up be­fore the com­mis­sion was not de­lib­er­ate as the pre­vi­ous in­vi­ta­tions sent to him ar­rived while he was out of the coun­try on va­ca­tion.

This has how­ever gen­er­ated a buzz on the so­cial media.

One Com­rade Nura Haliru posted on Face­book: “@Oga Mbu, I hope you can now de­fend your ac­tions such as tear-gassing a state EXCO meet­ing in ses­sion and block­ing a serv­ing Gover­nor from en­ter­ing Gov­ern­ment House?

Another ne­ti­zen who iden­ti­fied him­self as Efcc Zauro Mu­jitaba com­mented: “Hmmm noth­ing lasts for­ever AIG Mbu at NHRC of­fice!”

And Saidu Bap­pah said “Please take him to court...he’s a real hu­man rights vi­o­la­tor.”

In a dif­fer­ent tone, ne­ti­zen Mark Jude psoted: “APC wa­hala.”

While Shuaibu Umar sug­gested Mbu should have been fired. “I don’t know why he didn’t fol­low suit as Mar­i­lyn Ogar be­fore fac­ing his charges?” read his post.
