Rivers Police Storm PHC Estate, Arrests Alleged Police Officers, Thugs In Land Grabbing, ‘Matching Ground’ Business

The Rivers State Police command on Wednesday morning arrested about four alleged Policemen at Cedar Wood estate off SARS road, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area who are into business of land grabbing and collecting illegal levy from land developers in the area

Our correspondent who monitored the incident disclosed that Police Officers with over 15 patrol vans drawn from different tactical unit of the command raided a building where the Policemen normally camped inside the estate.

Our correspondent cited four officers and a Hilux vehicle being taken away by the men of tactical unit who came for the arrest.

Speaking to our reporter, a resident of the area disclosed that the arrest followed series of petitions by residents of the area to the Commissioner of Police, CP Eboka Friday and the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba on the illegal activities of the alleged Policemen and thugs who works with them.

The resident explained that the modus of operandi is that the officers and their collaborators, thugs normally come to site where land owner are developing their land, asked them to pay money ranging from 100,000 above and if the person refused to pay, the land developer will be beaten up and his/her fence brought down.

Another resident say in some cases, the Officers and their thugs take over the property of the landlord and sell to another person.

The residents decried the suffering they have gone through the hands of the officers.
The residents thanked the Commissioner of Police for the arrest of the officers while urging him to ensure they are disciplined in a accordance to the law.

The spokesperson for the Rivers State Police command, DSP Grace Iringe Koko was yet to respond to text messages sent to our reporter as at press time.
