Delta Police boss reacts to sit-at-home order by ‘Unknown Gunmen’
Mr Ari Ali, the Commissioner of Police (CP), Delta Command, has stated that there is no sit-at-home order in the state, as announced by a faceless armed group, Unknown Gunmen.
Ali provided the clarification in a statement made on Sunday by the state’s command spokesman, DSP Bright Edafe.
The CP was responding to a Facebook post with the description “Unknown gunmen Asaba Delta State sends a strong message” by some faceless individuals.
He assures citizens of their safety and encourages them to go about their legitimate business, emphasizing that the Command would act forcefully with anyone or group of people who attempt to cause mayhem in the state.
The police boss urged members of the public, particularly residents of Asaba and the entire Delta North senatorial district, to remain vigilant, monitor, and report any strange and suspicious movements of persons in their neighborhood to the command.
“The attention of Delta Police Command has been drawn to a Facebook post by some faceless individuals with the caption “Unknown gunmen Asaba Delta State sends strong message”, in which Asaba residents are warned to observe the “Sit-at-home order as declared by the proscribed IPOB.
“For the purpose of clarity, the CP Delta Delta Command has declared that there is no “sit-at-home order” in the state.
“Members of the public, particularly residents of Asaba and the entire Delta North, should remain vigilant, monitor and report any strange and suspicious movements of persons in their neighborhood to the Command or other law enforcement agencies,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ali has detailed officers and men of the command to be on red alert and remain watchful in order to maintain the existing peace in the state.
