The Commissioner of Police, Akwa Ibom State Command, CP Don Awunah, has been transferred out of the state.
TheMail Newspaper learnt from top police sources that the transfer takes immediate effect.
Also transferred out of the state is Julian Onita, who was the OC Anti-Robbery. He has been sent to Kogi State Command.
No official reason has been given for their transfer but according to our sources, the transfer may not be unconnected to the upsurge in crime in the state, especially in Ukanafun LGA and their inability to contend it.
Awunah, the immediate past spokesman of the Force at the National level will now lecture at Nigeria Police Academy, Kano State.
Awunah spent barely 7 months in the state after replacing CP Murtala Mani late January, 2017.
