My Threat Of Killing People During The Elections Was To Infuse Fear In Them- Joseph Mbu

Assistant Inspector General of Police, Zone 2, in person of Joseph Mbu, has said the threat he issued to kill 10 people for every policeman killed has greatly and positively iflurnced the conduct of the Lagos State election towards a peaceful one. Mbu says as a police officer he is prohibited to go about killing citizens, but only made that statement to infuse fear in them and it really worked. Here is what he told journalists shortly after the elections;

“Generally, people are becoming more and more mature, sensitive and reasonable. And anyway, the statement I made, which generated a lot of (controversy); people misconstrued it all over, but that also helped the police because people say, ‘this man has come o and whatever he says, he means it’, and that also instilled fear in them.

“Go and check all the places where I have served, how many people have died? We don’t kill that way. But you have to instill fear so that people will have more respect for the police.

“You know how police were perceived those days, but now police give orders and people say police cannot do anything. But with those few words (I said), people are now scared and say, ‘if you misbehave, police are going to react’.

“Now we have succeeded as far as I am concerned,” he said.
