The Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun has condemned in the strongest terms the recent outbreak of violence and subsequent breakdown of law and order at various Local Government Council secretariats in Rivers State.
 
Supporters of two political factions had clashed over the tenure of Local Government Council Chairmen, which unfortunately led to the tragic deaths of a Police Officer, Inspector David Mgbada, and Samuel Nwigwe, a vigilante member at Eberi-Omuma in Omuma LGA.
 
According to the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the IGP has directed the Commissioner of Police in Rivers State, Olatunji Disu, to heighten security measures across the state to prevent further violence and to institute thorough investigations into the killing of the police officer and the vigilante operative.
 
Adejobi noted that the IG has also deployed operatives of the Force Intelligence Response Team to assist the Rivers State Command in apprehending the killers of the police officer and the vigilante member.
