    As political tension rises in Rivers over the disagreement between Governor Siminalayi Fubara of Rivers State and Nyesom Wike Minister of Federal Capital Territory, the Rivers State Police Command has warned supporters of both parties to shun acts capable of causing a breach of the peace.

    The command cautioned that it would not stand aloof and allow any individual or group to disrupt the existing peace in the state under any guise.

    The command’s spokesperson, SP Grace Iringe-Koko, disclosed this in a signed press statement issued in Port Harcourt, on Sunday..

    “The Rivers State Police Command will not hesitate to take decisive action against any person or group of persons found to be in violation of the laws and orders of the state.”
