Furore As Rivers Policemen Protest Demolition Of Structures In barracks

Compol Eboka Friday, Rivers State Police Commissioner.

Some officers and men of the Nigeria Police have stormed the streets of Port-Harcourt, Rivers State, in protest over the alleged demolition of their houses in Miniokoro Police Barracks, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of the State.

The Policemen who protested, Wednesday, said they were forcefully evicted from their houses.

Some of them claimed that they borrowed money which they are yet to pay back to put up the structures.

One of the affected officers, who spoke under annonimity said the decision was not anti-people as the affected persons were not notified before the action.

His words: “This came to us as a shock. We were in our houses when we saw bulldozer bringing our houses down.”

“We were not informed before the action. It will affect our job. Our families are displaced already. We are calling on the management and the Inspector – General of Police to help us save the situation.”

The Paramount Ruler of Rumuobiakani community, Eze Temple Ejeku, has advised the protesting officers to allow the directive of the Inspector General of Police to go on.

Eze Ejeku, the traditional ruler of the host community to the barracks, after a meeting with the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) incharge of the Division, called for peace and understanding between the Police and the affected officers.

In the meantime, Rivers State Police Command said the action was based on the decision of the Police management team.

Image Maker of the Command, Grace Iringe-Koko,a Deputy Superintendent of Police ( DSP) who confirmed the development, said the Police carried out the action to retrieve its property from illegal occupants.

Her words:”The Command is aware of the demolition exercise. Those people are illegal occupants, they do not have their C of O. If they have, they should come up with it.”

“That land belongs to the Nigeria Police and Police is destroying shanties and illegal structures in the barracks.”

“The Police management team agreed on the action because there are some persons in the barracks that are of questionable characters, so they decided to demolish shanties and illegal structures in the barracks. It is internal restructuring that is going within the Police,she concluded.
