Police Spokesman, Rivers Command, Nnamdi Omoni, who disclosed this Monday night recalled that “The Commissioner of Police, CP Joseph Mukan had on assumption of duty in Rivers promised to address all cases of infractions and unprofessional conduct of the Officers and men of the Command.

“The dismissal of the officers today is a demonstration of his transparency and commitment to entrench discipline in the Command while appealing to the public to continue to have faith in the Police by assisting us with useful information as his doors are open, much as he welcomes constructive criticisms.”
