The Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, CP Zanna M. Ibrahim has denied that the Command disclosed to the press or any member of the public that the member representing the people of Delta Central Senatorial District, Senator Ovie Omo Agege, lied about his assassination attempt by hoodlums on Saturday, July 15 in Effurun, Uvwie Local Government Area of Delta State.
The CP who made the observation, Monday, at the Conference room of the Command Headquarters, Asaba during the weekly briefing with the Command’s management team, Divisional Police Officers,DPOs and Heads of Departments, HODs stated that,” At no time did the command dismiss the distinguished Senator’s report.”
CP Ibrahim who was responding to insinuations in certain quarters of the press that the Command dismissed the Senator’s alleged attack, noted that preliminary investigation into the case had already commenced at the Area Command office, Warri and will be later transferred to SCID, Asaba, with a view to getting to the root of the case, fishing out the culprits and bringing them to justice.
CP Ibrahim called on politicians and other stakeholders to always avail themselves of their unfettered access to the police and other security agencies to seek for provision of adequate security especially when distributing money and other items to their constituents as hoodlums may want to hijack such events to their own advantage.
CP Ibrahim while urging politicians to eschew anything that may heat up the polity, promises that all reported incidents will be properly investigated without any fear or favour.
