The Rivers State Police Command on Friday said it has arrested 22 persons in connection with the killing of a policeman in Oyigbo Local Government Area of the state attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Port Harcourt.

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Nnamdi Omoni, added that order had been restored in Oyigbo community following the attack by some faceless hoodlums who killed a cop, burnt a police post and a vehicle.

Omoni noted that the state Commissioner of Police, Joseph Mukan, had ordered an investigation into the incidents, adding that security had been beefed up in the area to restore law and order.

He said, “Our SARS office in Oyigbo was attacked. We lost one of our personnel and our patrol vehicle was burnt. We have arrested 22 suspects in connection with the incident and investigation is ongoing.

“We have also stabilised the area and security beefed up.”

Meanwhile, a youth leader in Oyigbo community, who identified himself as Nwachuckwu, absolved Oyigbo community youths from the crime.

“We learnt that some hoodlums attacked police in Oyigbo, burnt their vehicle and killed somebody, it is not in our blood to commit a crime, if you check the history of Rivers State, we have never surrendered arms before, so what is happening is strange and affecting us.

“We advise the security agencies to do their investigation and Know exactly what is happening in our place.”

  3. Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re working with?

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a
    decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
