The Nigeria Police Force has said that the deployment of police officers to Bayelsa State has already started paying off.
The Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, stated this in an interview on Channels TV’s Politics Today.
Speaking on the recent protest in Bayelsa State, Adejobi said the situation has already been handled.
Naija News recalls that on Friday, Police officers dispersed some women who stormed the command headquarters in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, demanding the removal of the Commissioner of Police, Tolani Alausa.
The women accused the Commissioner of bias.
However, Adejobi said that there is no cause for alarm.
He said, “I am sure that the DIG in charge of election in Bayelsa State has reacted to that. There was a protest in Bayelsa, but I don’t know much about it. Every Nigerian read it in the news, and the DIG had reacted to that. So, there is no cause for alarm. Everybody has the right to protest.
