Eboka Eboka A tactical unit of the Command, known as Eagle Crack Squad, was disbanded with immediate effect on Friday by the new Rivers State Commissioner of Police, The PUNCH notes.
This came barely 48 hours after a University of Port Harcourt undergraduate named Victor as disclosing how an officer with a tactical unit forgot his cell phone in his car after extorting him at gunpoint from N150, 000.
Victor alleged that the policeman stopped his car on the Rumuologu axis of the East-West Road in the State Local Government Area of Obio/Akpor, confiscated his phone and threatened to shoot him if he refused to pay the amount and forced him to use an ATM that he complied with at the spot.

The commissioner in a statement issued by the Command’s spokesman, Nnamdi Omoni, ordered the men of the now-disbanded unit to report to the headquarters at Moscow Road, Port Harcourt.

The statement reads, “The Commissioner of Police, Eboka Friday, has dissolved the Eagle Crack Squad. This was done this morning after a meeting with his Management Team.

“The dissolution is coming on the heels of complaints of unprofessional conduct exhibited by the Personnel of the Unit.

“Recall that the CP in his maiden Press briefing on Tuesday, February 24, 2021, promised to address all cases of infractions by the police and increase supervision of the men, with a stern warning to deal with erring officers and hold the DPOs/HODs vicariously liable.

“The dissolution is immediate and all staff attached to the unit are to report for redeployment to the Headquarters.

“The public is hereby obligated to rekindle their trust in the police, as the command is committed to providing them with enhanced police services that will stand the test of time.”
