The Delta State Police Command has assured residents of their safety and urges them to go about their lawful businesses amidst sit-at-home threats from the Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).
This is coming after the attention of the command is been drawn to a Facebook post shared by some faceless individual with the caption “Unknown gunmen Asaba Delta State sends a strong message”.
According to the Facebook post, Asaba residents are warned to observe the “Sit at home order” as declared by the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra.
However, for clarity, the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, FCIA, psc+, has declared that there is no “sit at home order” in the State.
This assurance was made known in a statement by the command spokesperson, Dsp. Bright Edafe, on Sunday in Asaba, the state capital.
In the statement, the CP assures residents of their safety and urges them to go about their lawful businesses as the command is willing and able to deal decisively with anyone or group of persons who try to cause any form of trouble in the State.
The CP also admonishes members of the public particularly residents of Asaba and the entire Delta North district to remain vigilant, monitor, and report any strange and suspicious movements or persons in their neighborhood to the command or other law enforcement agencies.
Meanwhile, the CP in his determination to maintain the existing peace in the State has placed officers and men of the Command on red alert and urged them to remain watchful and deal decisively with anyone or group of persons attempting to cause any form of mayhem in the State.
He has further directed the Deputy Commissioner of Police Operations, Area Commanders, DPOS, and Tactical Commanders to maintain Police visibility across the length and breadth of the State and emplace measures that will make the State uncomfortable and uninhabitable for any group of hoodlums.
Given this, the command also released some contact information to enable residents to report cases of suspicious activities, stating that the Delta State Police Command can be contacted through the following numbers;
The PPRO’s Office on +234 915 557 0008, +234 915 557 0007, Or the Command Control Room via +234 803 668 4974.
