The Rivers State Police Command has announced the arrest, disarming and detention of the officer who shot and killed School Boy, a keke rider at Rukpokwu axis of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area, earlier today.
Hitvibz gathered the officer is from Etche Local Government Area.
The Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Nnamdi Omoni, a Superintendent of Police, sued for calm, promising that justice would be served.
“I am aware of the incident at Rukpoku. One of our men killed a Keke ridder this morning. The policeman has been disarmed and he is detained now,” he said.
“We have mobilised our men in the area to restore calm and contain a further breakdown of law and order. We are pleading for calm to allow us to bring him to justice. Two wrongs can never make a wrong. The Keke driver has died and the man who killed him must receive his punishment.”
He further stressed that;
“Killing a policeman or burning down a station cannot bring him back to life or give him justice, instead it will deteriorate the situation.”
