Governor Wike leads peaceful protest against the alleged police brutality in Rivers Rerun

“On behalf of the Rivers State government and the good people of the state, we have to let the police know that enough is enough. We demand that the Assistant Commissioner of Police in charge of Operations, Hasso and the Commander of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS), Akin Fakorede, must leave the state.

“Since you don’t want to protect the state and you want to be politicians, you have gotten the votes you want to get, you have also gotten the seats you want to get, you can now leave the state. If they don’t leave the state, then we will do all we can to ensure they leave this state. They must leave this state. They have killed innocent people.

“We have come here peacefully; communicate this to your superiors in Abuja. I cannot write again, since I have done that repeatedly. Please, I don’t want my people to die anymore. I don’t want armed robbers posted as senior police officers to Rivers State,” Wike said.
