Obiano Launches Smart Bikes Unit To Improve Anambra Security

Obiano Launches Smart Bikes Unit To Improve Anambra Security The Anambra state Governor, Willie Obiano, has launched a Motor Bikes Security Unit with 50 smart bikes to complement the already existing security operations of other special units in the state.

Along with the bikes, a set of fully kitted and well trained Police riders, were presented at the Governor’s Lodge, Amawbia.

The smart bikes possess communication gadgets to connect with other special security units in the state, such as the Sand bags, Metro, Marine and Smart Cars unit.

Presenting them to the Anambra state Commissioner of Police, Sam Okaula, Governor Obiano said the idea behind the initiative, is for them to be able to penetrate areas where vehicles may not be able to reach, as well as check snatching of items by criminals especially during this yuletide season.

“The bikes would be able to reach areas that vehicles cannot, and help check bags and phone snatching elements, the governor said.

He then charged the police to be professional in their operations and desist from taking bribe or extorting money from citizens, but rather do things differently.

The keys to the motorbikes were handed over to the Mr Okaula, who alongside the governor test ran them.

The police boss on the other hand assured the governor of the commitment of the command to continue to suppress insecurity and crime in the state.

Furthermore, following Obiano’s consistent appeal for more intervention in the state security, he used the opportunity to launch an Armored Personnel Carrier (APC), also donated to Anambra state Police Command by the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris.

Reds Willing To Bid For Celtic Defender Efe Ambrose

One of Nigeria’s defenders at the just concluded Afcon 2013 tournament where Nigeria’s Super Eagles were crowned champions of Africa is been the talk of the press in Scotland.

The Nigerian defender Efe Ambrose who plays for Celtics we hear is being wanted by Liverpool to add to its defence line.

According to Metro, the 24 year old Nigerian who is rated to be worth £6 million prompted Liverpool to up their game in their interest for the player after the player impressed scouts with his performances at the African Cup of Nations.

Scouts brought the name of the Nigerian international back to Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers after the tournament.

Liverpool representatives have been dispatched to watch the £6million-rated 24-year-old during the Hoops’ title procession in Scotland, as they ‘step up’ their interest in the player.

Manager Neil Lennon is well aware of the interest in his player, but revealed that there is yet to be a concrete offer for the player, who is contracted at Parkhead until 2015.

“I know a few Ambrose fans. There is nothing concrete, but I am aware of the interest,” he is quoted as saying by the paper.

Liverpool aren’t full of options in defence, with veteran centre Jamie Carragher announcing earlier in the month that he’s to retire at the end of the season.

That leaves Daniel Agger, Martin Skrtel and Sebastian Coates as the manager’s options at Anfield in the summer, and Rodgers already appears to be looking at his options on Merseyside.
