The Commissioner of Police, Akwa Ibom State, CP Olatoye Durosinmi has warned criminally minded youth in the state to renounce cultism, embrace peace and get freedom, or face the consequences in one week.
CP Durosinmi handed the advice when he led his No Election Violence campaign to Nsit Atai Local Government Area of the state on Friday.
The visit was also part of his familiarization tour to divisions and formations under his command and also to have an on-the-spot assessment of the recent cult clashes at the area.
CP Durosinmi while thanking the stakeholders, noted that peaceful elections and transition are sin-qua-non for the growth and development of the state adjudged as one of the most peaceful in the country.
He urged the youth and other stakeholders to ensure that the forthcoming elections in the state were devoid of violence before, during and after the elections.
The CP who was miffed by the recent cult clashes in Nsit Atai Local Government Area, gave a one-week ultimatum to those involved to “renounce, embrace peace and be freed or be ready to face the dire consequences of their actions thereafter.”
He said he is willing to work with the state government to grant amnesty to those who will truly desist from the dastardly act.
