Rights group donates solar equipment to Anambra Police stations


The Human Right, Liberty Access, and Peace Defenders Foundation (HURIDE), has donated Standard Capacity Solar Energy Equipment to three Police stations in Anambra State.

The Stations which benefitted from the solar equipment which would provide them power in event of public power outage are Fegge, Bridge head and Awada police divisions respectively.

The Chairman, Board of Trustees (BoT), Dede Uzor A. Uzor who made the donations personally said the donation was in collaboration with a businessman, Comrade Ambrose Chuba Odua, one of the patrons of HURIDE.

He said the solar equipment would enable the stations serve the public better.

He said the aim was to ease the work of officers and men to serve the people professionally and efficiently.

He said in doing this “we want to show that we don’t just hold Police accountable but we also help to ease their work. We don’t just criticize them, we don’t hate them but to ensure they do their job well to the benefit of all. We want to assure that we will continue to help where we can.”

He said they also donated the equipment to support the hardworking and human right friendly Commissioner of Police, John Abang and the hard working Police Public Relation Officer, SP Haruna Muhammed.

Dede Uzor said they intend to provide more of the equipment to other stations in due course, especially those stations which are human rights compliant and friendly.

Receiving the equipment, the Divisional Police Station, Fegge Police Division, Onitsha, CSP Rabiu Garba thanked HURIDE for their thoughtfulness in donating the equipment.

Garba said the equipment would help them in their determination to eradicate criminals in the Division, assuring that it would be used for the interest of the law abiding citizens.

Barr. Godwin Okeke, the DPO of Bridgehead Station, who is also a Chief Superintendent of Police said he was impressed that the human right body can give a thought to helping Police in their work instead of finding fault.

This in effect, he said, showed that all of them were working for the same goal to achieve crime free society for all.

The Awada DPO, CSP Tony Adeyi in the same vein commended HURIDE for solidarity with the Nigerian Police.
