A statement released by the State Police Public Relations Officer, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, noted that “the Commissioner, while reiterating commitment to meticulously investigate and bring the perpetrators of the alleged murder of the Traditional Ruler and the ensuing acts of violence to book, has called on residents of the Community to remain calm and eschew acts capable of further inciting violence in the area while the investigation lasts. He warns that anyone found wanting will be made to face the full weight of the law.”
