  • Regrets the death of one Policeman and the serious bullet injury on three Policemen

The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Suleiman Abba CFR, NPOM, NPM, mni,  has ordered a full-scale investigation into the shooting incident yesterday, 17th February, 2015 at the campaign rally of the All Progressives Congress (APC), in Okrika, Rivers State, during which three Policemen were injured and one killed.
He has directed the Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge Zone 6 Calabar, AIG Johnson Tunde Ogunshakin to take over the investigation and promptly bring to book all the perpetrators, conspirators and sponsors. He further directed a judicious prosecution of suspects arrested in connection with violence across the country.
The IGP also noted with grave concern that despite serious warnings, advices and interfaces with political actors to avoid acts of violence in the ongoing electoral process, such acts have continued.
However, the IGP restated the resolve and commitment of the Nigeria Police Force, and in line with its constitutional and statutory mandate, to continue to provide an impartial level playing ground for all political parties to sell their manifestoes and woo the electorate.
The IGP deeply regretted the loss of lives of Policemen in the course of providing safety in the electoral process. His heart went out to the families of the slain colleagues as he wished the injured officers speedy recovery and return to national duty.
