Rivers Crisis: We won’t vacate LG secretariats until after court verdict—IGP


The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun on Thursday said his men would not vacate the local government secretariats in Rivers State until after a court judgement on the tenure of local council chairmen in the state.

 The IGP who spoke at a meeting with senior police officers in Abuja on Thursday said the decision was to ensure peace and order and not to intimidate anyone.

He said the police will continue to occupy the secretariats until a court of competent jurisdiction delivers judgment on the local government chairmanship tenure crisis in the state.

The IGP who also spoke on the controversy over the recruitment of constables and the allegations by the Police Service Commission (PSC) against him, said the management of the Force will not sit idly and watch questionable and untrainable persons recruited into the Police Force.

He insisted that the Nigeria Police Force is a specialized institution that is not meant for all Nigerians.
