Help locate my husband, policeman’s wife cries out

Help locate my husband, policeman’s wife cries out 
A seven-month-old pregnant mother of three, Mrs Mary Emmanuel, has called on the River State Police Command to help locate her “missing” husband. The woman made the appeal during the visit of the wife of the Commissioner of Police, Mrs Chinyere Ogunsakin, to MOPOL 19 barracks yesterday.

The MOPOL Commander, M. P. Abubakar, presented the woman to Ogunsakin, who is the state chairperson of the Police Officers’ Wives’ Association (POWA). Emmanuel gave a tearful account of how her husband had “disappeared” for over seven months.

She said her husband had gone on special duties to Plateau State, but attempts to reach him had failed. The woman, who wept profusely in the arms of the POWA chairperson, also expressed fear that her husband might have been killed.
Ogunsakin, who consoled Emmanuel, donated an undisclosed amount to the family. She, however, called for contact to be made immediately with the Plateau State commissioner of police to advance the search for the “missing” policeman. The POWA chairperson also urged all officers to be more responsible and responsive to their families, noting that family is important.
During the visit, Ogunsakin, who took time to interact with children, also visited the Presbyterian, Catholic and Apostolic nursery and primary schools in the barracks. She, however, charged policemen serving in the state to look after their families wherever they might go.
