‘Rivers Is Peaceful And Safe’, Says Fubara 

Despite recent security concerns regarding the administration of local government areas, Rivers State Governor Siminalayi Fubara asserts that the state remains peaceful and safe.

During a visit to Omuma Local Government Area, where two security operatives were killed in a political crisis, Governor Fubara asserted that the state remains peaceful and safe. 

The governor was there to inspect the progress of the 14.6 km Omodu-Eberi road project. 

He stated that the state is not under siege, contrary to perceptions arising from reports of protests and the police takeover of council secretariats. 

Upon arrival, the governor was greeted by enthusiastic residents and led by Caretaker Committee Chairman Promise Reginald.

The governor’s assurance comes on the heels of a directive from the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, for the continuation of the police barricade on local government secretariats in Rivers State to prevent a breakdown of law and order.

IGP Egbetokun gave the directive while fielding questions from journalists in Abuja on the sideline of a conference with Commissioners of Police and other senior officers.

He said the police will continue to occupy the secretariats until a court of competent jurisdiction delivers judgment on the local government crisis in Rivers State.
