A team of policemen have arrived Okrika and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Areas of Rivers State in search of illegal arms and ammunition from hoodlums.
The policemen, who arrived on Tuesday, said they were in the state to conduct a stop and search operation in the areas among other security objectives.

Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 6 Calabar, Tunde Ogunsakin, told newsmen at a press conference in Port Harcourt, that the force was ready to clampdown on anybody found with illegal weapons.

Ogunsakin said he heard information that illegal weapons were going round in Okrika and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Areas.
He said: “Part of the measures we have put in place is stop and search point in strategic areas in Okrika and Ogu/Bolo Local Government Areas. We are looking for arms and ammunition that are in very wrong hands. So, we are carrying out this search in peace. We heard information that these things (arms) are going on and people are taking them around.

“I can tell you that the police is on top of the situation. We will clampdown on those who are with illegal arms,” Ogunsakin said.
While meeting with relevant stakeholders in the areas, Ogunsakin said the essence was to ensure that all live in peace in their communities.

“What we did this morning was to call all the stakeholders which include: religious leaders, political party members, all the elders of Ogu/Bolo and Okrika. They all came here this morning and we discussed on how to ensure that the communities live in peace among themselves as well as to carry out their politicking in a peaceful manner,” he added.
