Not many people from Cross River may be aware that the controversial Police Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Mbu is from the state.

Mr. Mbu who is currently the Commissioner of Police in charge of the FCT Command today, Saturday, 10th May, 2014 laid the remains of his late mum, Mrs Agnes Ara Mbu, to rest in his home town, Abia community in Etung Local government, Central Cross River state.

He however did not make any speech during the vigil night, church service or at the graveside during the burial ceremony and the burial program did not contain any tribute, biography or condolence messages apart from that of Apostolic Church, Abia, where the woman was a member before her demise.

The Secretary to State Government, Mr Michael Aniah and Mrs Obioma Imoke, wife of the Cross River State governor, Senator Liyel Imoke and the throng of dignitaries that attended the ceremony equally did not make any condolence speeches but sat quietly and watched while the Apostolic pastor paced round the expansive compound to deliver the funeral message and thereafter the body was moved from Mbu’s house to the deceased compound for interment.

Mbu who wore a traditional dress along side other members of the family did not show any emotions when the casket bearing his mother’s body was conveyed by Apams Funeral undertakers to the grave side or even when the body was lowered.

The burial was attended by dignitaries from Port Harcourt, Calabar, Ogoja, Lagos, Abuja, and Maiduguri
