ASSISTANT Superintendent of Police, B Division, Awka, Innocent Ejeh, has reminded members of Anti-Piracy Society of Nigeria that they are the middlemen between the police and the society in the fight against fake and counterfeiting.

Ejeh, who represented the Divisional Police Officer, Awka, made this declaration during the visit of APSON state officials to Awka south zone noted that the police force cannot work on any case concerning counterfeiting without being verified or confirmed by APSON and from the body overseeing the particular product.

He called to mind that no one has the right to copy one’s work, otherwise, it becomes a criminal offence that would lead to seven to 15 years imprisonment.

Ejeh therefore charged APSON members to be dedicated and committed in the fight against fake and counterfeiting in society and the entire Nigeria, adding that without working hand-in-hand with police force, the law enforcement agencies cannot work.

He also used the opportunity to urge all the producers of various products to ensure they tender their trade mark to the necessary body concerned for easy identification in order to enable them in the fight.

Earlier, the Director-General of APSON, Frank Uduonu  while speaking on the nonchalant attitude of Awka South Zone members  towards their duties, emphasised that life is all about being focused, adding that whoever that does not show good identity of APSON would not be allowed in the organization. “If you don’t get it right, the whole body or administration would not be achieved. Young people need who will motivate them to work”.

In his remark, the Parish Priest of Our Lady of Assumption, Awka, Reverend Father Christian Ike, narrated that he had been hearing about anti-piracy ever since in university and knows what it entails, saying that he is happy associating with the organization .

Rev. Fr. Ike lamented that millions of people have lost their lives in Nigeria as a result of piracy, advising Nigerians to put their hands on deck in the fight for people’s safety.
