CSOs Warn Police Over Rivers Crisis


The coalition of Rivers Civil Society Groups has warned state Commissioner of Police, Olatunji Disu, not to take sides in the political crisis of actors in the state.

A spokesman for the group, Solomon Lenu, while speaking to newsmen, urged Disu not to follow the path of a former CP who allegedly aligned with acts of lawlessness in the state in 2013.

He said, “The Commissioner of Police and his men should remain neutral and obey the court orders in this matter by not allowing any of the two factions to gain access to the Assembly complex.

“We want peace in Rivers State and not anarchy. We reiterate that Mr President should caution his minister to give peace a chance and allow Governor Fubara to attend to his responsibilities as a governor who was duly elected by the Rivers people.

“Wike’s action may push us to move to Abuja and occupy his office in protest. This should sound as a warning to him and his lawmakers in the state.”Lenu alleged that the FCT minister was hell-bent on throwing the state into anarchy by using lawless lawmakers in the state.
