    Well,congrats to the newly promoted officers.Some of you don’t deserve. The promotion.For instance,if you go to the Onitsha bridge head and the road under the bridge,policemen mounted road blocks and extort huge sums of money from motorists.The Change should really begin with them.Secondly,the IG should wake up his ideas on nefarious activities of policemen and set examples with the bad eggs.They abound in Onitsha plenty.
