Police disentangles itself from house of assembly crisis


The Rivers Police Command on Monday said it was neutral in the ongoing crisis in the state House of Assembly.

The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the Command, Ahmad Muhammed said in Port Harcourt that the police were non-partisan.

He said that the police, as a professional body, had never taken side in the assembly crisis since it started.

The PPRO said that the police did not escort any legislator to sit in the assembly as it was reported in some national dailies, adding that it had no intention to do that.
Muhammed also denied that some persons broke into the premises of the assembly complex.

He said that the police would continue to close the complex until it received a court order to reopen it for the legislators to resume their legislative functions.

The PPRO assured the legislators and residents of the state of police protection at all times, irrespective of party affiliations.

He advised journalists to always cross check their facts before reporting, to avoid misleading the general public.
