Akwa Ibom APC Congress: Police Assures Of Maximum Security



The Akwa Ibom State Police Command has assured of a hitch-free chapter congress of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on Saturday, saying, it will beef up security in the state.

Commissioner of Police in the state, Mr. Adeyemi Ogunjemilusi, said that the command has deployed its officers and operatives to the 31 local government headquarters of the state to ensure a peaceful congress. 

CP Ogunjemilusi who warned that the command would not condone any unlawful act in the state, advised anybody with criminal mind or intent to stay clear from the venues of the exercise or be ready to face the consequent.

“We are fully prepared to ensure that the coming APC Congress is peaceful. We have our men deployed to all parts of the local government headquarters where the congress will take place. I can assure you that with the level of maturity deployed by the leadership of the APC in the last congress in the state, I believe that the next one would be peaceful.

“Without the police, it is impossible to have freedom and liberty. If you look at the Nigeria police responsibility, it is to protect lives and property, to maintain law and order: these are the basic rudiments of democracy. We have to be professional; there is need for police to be neutral at all levels and at all times.

“The beauty of justice is that everyone should be equal before the law and that is what the Inspector General of Police is doing.
