The Inspector-General of Police, IGP MD Abubakar, CFR, NPM, mni, psc has ordered a full-scale investigation into the incident, last Sunday, in Rivers State, where the Police have  been alleged to have shot Senator Magnus Abe  with rubber bullets.

While promising to maintain fairness and justice to all, the IGP calls on the citizens of the state to cooperate with the investigative team, maintain calm and shun all inflammatory or presumptuous statements. He further urged the good people of Rivers State to continue to respect the laws of the land while going about their normal businesses.
