Update: Rivers State Is Peaceful, Safe -Gov Fubara

The Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara, has assured citizens that the state is peaceful and safe despite the recent security concern over the administration of local government areas.

He stated this during a visit to Omuma Local Government Area where two security operatives were killed in the political crisis.

The governor, who was there to inspect the progress of work on the 14.6 km Omodu-Eberi road project, said the state is not under siege contrary to perceptions formed from reports of protests and the police takeover of council secretariats.

During the visit, the governor was welcomed by excited residents led by the Caretaker Committee Chairman, Promise Reginald.

The governor’s assurance comes on the heels of a directive from the Inspector General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, for the continuation of the police barricade on local government secretariats in Rivers State to prevent the breakdown of law and order.
