Killing Of Innocent Policewoman: The Tragedy Of Brick & Mortar Governance – Finebone
The former Rivers State APC Publicity Secretary, Senibo Chris Finebone has condemned the controversial killing of a Policewoman around Eneka axis of Port Harcourt.
In a message sent to Swift Reporters before the Rivers State Police Command press release, Senibo Chris Finebone said that the killing was either done by policemen attached to the task force team or policemen on routine beat shooting one of their own attached to the task force team. The truth will come out ultimately.
“Now, this is within the city. What will happen when the Gov. sets up task force teams for border control made up of only the boys?
“Many things will likely happen such as:
1. Military or Police personnel that they encounter at the various borders/boundaries may react angrily & shoot them and claim they tried to rob them. The dead boys will just go like that.
2. Criminal gangs will start blocking various roads in the name of task force on border to rob people, etc etc.
3. The boys themselves are very likely to be compromised with money by road users thereby defeating the purpose for which the task force was set up with all the attendant risks.
“That is the reason I warned two days ago that the governor should not set up that task force instead continue to work with security agencies to enforce lockdown of the state, Senibo Chris Finebone said.
Meanwhile, the Sergeant who is said to be attached the Rivers State Task Force on Decongestion, has been arrested, disarmed and undergoing Orderly Room Trial. Two other members of the Task Force have also been arrested and are being questioned. The Hilux vehicle belonging to the Task Force has been impounded and the corpse of the Woman Sergeant deposited in the mortuary, according to the Police Public Relations Officer, Rivers State Police Command, DSP Nnamdi Omoni.
Also, the Rivers State APC has condemned the killing and called on Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike to continue to work with the security agencies to ensure the successful lockdown of the state borders to avoid needless waste of life like that of the innocent policewoman.
