“In addition, Rivers State government has promised to rebuild all burnt police stations in Oyigbo and vowed to ensure that the terrorist organisation no longer exists in Rivers State.
“The state government will support the police to make sure that all IPOB members who masterminded the killing of the policemen and soldiers, as well as the wanton destruction of police stations in Oyigbo are apprehended to face the full wrath of the law.
“IPOB masterminded the killing of our gallant officers of the Nigerian Police and Army. We want to state clearly that Rivers State government will support you to make sure that any of the perpetrators of this hideous crime does not go free.
“Enough is enough. You cannot continue to kill our policemen who have not done anything; who have not committed any crime.”
