JUST IN: Police didn’t takeover Rivers lawmakers’ quarters- CP

The Commissioner of Police, Rivers Command, Tunji Disu, has debunked reports that the State Assembly complex had been taken over by armed policemen after the court ruling that barred 24 lawmakers from parading themselves as representative of any Constituency.

Disu said that the policemen sighted at the Assembly premises were deployed to protect the facility from going under possible attacks that could be orchestrated by any of the two warring lawmakers groups in the state.

He stressed that the policemen dispatched to the Assembly would complement efforts of the officers attached to the existing Police Division inside the lawmakers’ quarters.

The Rivers Police boss disclosed this exclusively to The Guild on Friday during an interview in Port Harcourt with our correspondent.

Disu explained that the move was made by the command to maintain peace and harmony currently being experienced inside the lawmakers’ quarters.

He stated that the policemen deployed to the lawmakers’ premises were highly trained to maintain neutrality as stipulated by law.

The CP promised that the police would not allow the Assembly premises go under any attack that could result to additional expenses on government.
