Reports making the rounds in the Garden City suggest the Chief Security Officer to the Governor of Rivers State, Promise Wosu has been relieved of his assignment.
He is accused of allegedly engaging in sinister transactions which may be seen as theft.
The verbal indictment of Wosu is purportedly coming from his boss, Governor Nyesom Wike.
Wike who is believed to be livid with rage seems to think that monies meant for the operations of agencies headed by security chiefs may not have gotten to their destination.
We cannot confirm if the Government House has proof of the allegation that the police officer is guilty.
We cannot also confirm if Government House has filed formal charges, given the disclosures that the system is dealing with.
But sources allege that allocations intended to enhance the state’s security architecture were either withheld or diverted by the Governor’s aide.
For four years, according to credible Government House sources, the Chief Security Officer received the sum of N63 million monthly.
Given the mood in Government House, those princely funds were never remitted after the CSO allegedly picked them up .
Incidentally, the CSO who is reportedly in the eye of the storm, accused of purportedly tampering with public funds in billions, is a Superintendent of Police, SP.
Can it be true that the Superintendent pf Police really stole those funds?
Why has Wike allowed such a damning information out of Government House?
So far, there has been no response from the police force. Journalists who have been in touch with the PPRO, Nnamdi Omoni, say the police is yet to receive a proper brief.
But within Government House circles, the appointee whom many agree ran foul of his relationship with Governor Wike, may have questions to answer.
Wosu was the Rivers Commander of F-SARS. In that position, Wosu is believed to have struck a strong relationship with the incoming governor for whom he allegedly worked.
There were accusations at the time that he allegedly did the dirty work for Wike who was then a Minister of State in the Ministry of Education.
After his victory, Wike had him deployed to Government House as CSO, a position that has usually been reserved for operatives of the DSS.
Given the notorious image Wosu garnered prior to the 2015 election, it is not difficult to understand why Wike was vividly worried about the alleged activities of Akin Fakarode who later became the Commander of the dreaded outfit.
Wike was unable to relax, according to facts that are well known, until Fakarode left the Rivers State on another posting.
Now that Wike has disgraced Wosu out of office, there are people who say the Governor should watch his back because of his supposed deep knowledge of the governor’s operations.
A top official at Government House, Port Harcourt, who spoke in confidence, disclosed that Wike decided to remove the CSO for stealing money meant for security chiefs.
