Rivers state police command has said that organizers of the disrupted concert Teni performed in, didn’t apply for security.
Spokesperson of the state Police Command, Grace Iringe-Koko who addressed reporters on Wednesday January 5, said the organisers ought to have applied to the Commissioner of Police for security.
Koko also insisted that no police officer fired a gunshot during the event. The statement read;
“No police officer from Rivers State Police Command fired any gunshot that day. Normally if they have such an event, they are supposed to write an application to the Commissioner of Police.
“Then the Commissioner of Police will direct the Area Commander covering that Degema axis, while the Degema Area Commander will also assign it to the Divisional Police Officer over there at Buguma that will cover that event.
“But there was no application of such. The DPO did not have any knowledge of it. Perhaps the DPO might know they have an event and say maybe his men should just stroll around on patrol. But there was no application of such to cover that event.”
