The Rivers State Police Command has assured residents and business operators in the state of their safety and protection in the wake of increasing devastating attacks on police formations in neighboring Abia and most recently, Imo States.
Spokesman of the command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni while reacting to Monday morning’s deadly attack at the Imo State Police Headquarter and Correctional Home said the command in Rivers State is on the alert to repel and contain any similar attack in the state.
The Force Headquarter on Monday afternoon had accused IPOB’s Eastern Security Network of masterminding and executing the attacks which led to the escape of about 1880 prisoners and burning of properties worth millions of Naira.
“There is no cause for alarm. The Police in Rivers State is prepared to repel any such attack. We are able and equal to the task.”
