They comprised of over 215 regular officers and about 25 specialists.
The specialists remain within the Calabar metropolis and are made up of mostly drivers and one Mechanic whom the source said will likely be posted to either the Calabar Area Command or the Mechanical workshop along Barrack’s road in Calabar.
When pressed for information concerning how the constables were posted and why there was a delay, the source said manpower needs and “other interests” were taken into consideration.
Those posted are to report to their divisional headquarters on Monday (tomorrow) for reassignment by the Divisional Police Officers, the source added.
