Rivers Police boss vows to clamp down on cultists, political thugs
The new Commissioner of Police in Rivers State, Usman Belel, has vowed to clampdown on cult groups, political thugs and unlicensed firearm holders to stem the orgy of violence in the state, vowing that the police under his watch would be very unrelenting in the recovery of illegal firearms, which has been used to kill, maim and rob victims.
He stated this yesterday at the Police officers’ Mess during his maiden press briefing in Port Harcourt, Rivers State. Belel solicited for collaboration and working synergy with sister military and security services to tackle the development at strategic levels, adding that the era of unknown suspects would be drastically reduced, stating that the command would invest in building a data base for all arrested suspects and exhibits collected at crime scene to facilitate identity of criminals.
The Commissioner promised to be apolitical and professional noting that such are the principles behind democratic policing, saying the state would not be conducive anymore for criminals, advising those involved in acts of criminality to desist or face the wrath of the law.
