By Adadainfo

The commissioner of police, Anambra State, CP Echeng Echeng, Saturday, reacted to a media report that he was sentenced to the Nigeria Correctional Centre by a Delta State High Court.

A news medium reported the alleged sentencing, under the headline ‘Commissioner Of Police Anambra State, Others Sentenced To Prison’.

The online news outfit alleged that
a Delta State High Court sentenced CP Echeng and one Kingsley Umeh to prison over refusal to comply with the order of the court to release a kidnapped child to his parents.

According to the paper, CP Echeng and others were convicted in a suit No: HCO/44/2021 filed before Hon Justice C.O. Emifoniye of Delta State High Court by one Pastor Henry Osah.

Osah, the medium went on, had prayed the court to order the Anambra State Police Command to free his kidnapped child who was found in an orphanage in the state.

Justice C.O. Emifoniye, according to the source, on Wednesday, ordered the inspector general of police to arrest CP Echeng and one Inspector Kingsley Umeh and transport them from Anambra State to the Kwale Prisons, Delta State, within one week.

Reacting, the police public relations officer, Anambra State, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, stated that the command was unaware of such ruling.

He stated that, “The Anambra State Police Command wishes to state emphatically that the command is not aware and is yet to receive any order committing the commissioner of police, Anambra State Command, to a correctional center.

“Therefore, the command is constrained to make further comments.”
