The Rivers State Police Command has clarified the presence of operatives at the Rivers State House of Assembly Quarters in Port Harcourt.

Friday, over 35 fully armed police men were seen with their vans blocking the entrance gates the assembly quarters on Port Harcourt-Aba express way.

It would be recalled that the governor of the state, Sir Siminalayi Fubara, had visited the facility of the state legislature in a bid to ascertain the condition of the buildings.

But the occupants, who are the state lawmakers loyal to the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, Chief Nyesom Wike, led by Rt. Hon. Martin Amaewhule, noted that the buildings were not due for renovation.

In a statement issued by the spokesperson for the state police command, Grace Iringe-Koko, she said that the police were solely there to prevent any breach of law and order.

The statement was titled “Rivers State Police Command Clarifies Presence at Rivers State House of Assembly Quarters’.

It read, “The Rivers State Police Command wishes to clarify the recent reports regarding our presence at the Rivers State House of Assembly quarters.

“Our deployment in the area is solely aimed at ensuring peace and preventing any possible breakdown of order.

“We assure the public that there is no cause for alarm, and all individuals are encouraged to continue their lawful activities without fear.

“Your cooperation is greatly appreciated as we work towards maintaining a safe and secure environment for all.”
