Police Public Relations Officer of the Command, Nnamdi Omoni who confirmed the incident urged residents to remain calm as justice will be served on the incident.  He added that policemen have been deployed to the area to restore calm and contain a further breakdown of law and order.

Omoni said; 

“I am aware of the incident at Rukpoku. One of our men killed a Keke rider this morning. The policeman has been disarmed and he is detained now.

“We have mobilised our men in the area to restore calm and contain a further breakdown of law and order.

“We are pleading for calm to allow us to bring him to justice. Two wrongs can never make a wrong. The Keke driver has died and the man who killed him must receive his punishment.

“Killing a policeman or burning down a station cannot bring him back to life or give him justice, instead it will deteriorate the situation.”
