The Rivers State Police Commissioner of Police yesterday said he has uncovered clandestine moves by two opposing groups to stage a protest in Port Harcourt purposely to express their support or opposition to the ministerial nomination of Rt. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi by President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Accordingly, the Commissioner of Police hereby warns these groups to jettison the plan to stage the protest so as not truncate the existing peaceful co-existence in the State. While the Command respects the individuals’ right of peaceful assembly, it will not tolerate a situation where such protests will lead to breach of public peace and breakdown of law and order,” Police Public Relations Officer, DSP. Ahmad K. Muhammad, said in a statement.

He said that “the Commissioner of Police enjoins the good people of Rivers State to remain calm, hopeful, confident and trusting in the ability of the Command to discharge its constitutional mandate of ensuring public peace and security; as well as upholding democratic rights and rule of law, please.”
