Attacks: Police cordon off Rivers stations, headquarters

The police in Rivers State have taken extra security measures to increase vigilance around their stations and headquarters to forestall possible attacks by gunmen.

Investigations revealed police authorities resorted to cordoning off police stations, divisions and the headquarters located in Port Harcourt, the state capital, to restrict movements of vehicles and pedestrians.

Barricades were erected along Moscow Road where the headquarters is located to stop vehicles from passing in front of the facility.

The police station located close to Abali Flyover along the Aba Road was completely shut from traffic as used tires and bamboo sticks were used to block the road leading to the station.

The police station at Mile 1 was also cordoned off as motorists were compelled to use only one lane.

It was also found the Olu Obasanjo and Mile 3 police stations were all closed to traffic while the barricade at the police station along Abacha Road had been dismantled.

Motorists complained about the barricades saying they had caused traffic congestion on the roads.

Commuters and drivers plying the Abali Park flyover and Moscow road particularly lamented traffic delay saying the development worsened already existing traffic jam caused by road and flyover constructions in the city.

Some of the drivers reasoned that there was no longer hope for the ordinary people if the police with arms could be afraid of gunmen.

Apart from the barricades, it was discovered the police deployed more armed operatives to man the entrance gates of their stations and headquarters.

A security operative, who spoke in confidence, attributed the extra security measures to ongoing attacks on police formations in the neighbouring states.


The Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), Nnamdi Omoni, said there was no cause for alarm noting the development was additional security measure.
