Commissioner of Police in Rivers state, Francis Mobolaji Odesanya is dead. Mr. Odesanya died in an India hospital of kidney failure according to police sources. The commissioner of police was transferred to Rivers state in August 2016 to take over from Foluso Adebanjo who is currently a Deputy Inspector General of Police.
CORRECTION: Our earlier report erroneously stated that Foluso Adebanjo who was CP of Rivers state in June died in India. The late officer is Francis Adesanya, NOT Foluso Adebanjo. Errors regretted!
