°As Police deny curfew in Okpanam
The Delta State Police Command has debunked the rumours making the rounds that a 6-6 curfew has been decleared in Okpanam with effect from July 27,to enable security agencies carry out their job.
According to Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe,” this is not only laughable,but completely rediculous and a lie put up by some mischievous persons to cause confusion among residents of the community.
“The Command wishes to emphatically state that there is no curfew decleared in Okpanam community, and as a matter of fact, Okpanam community is calm and two suspects have been arrested in connection with the incident that led to the death of three Policemen in the early hours of Sunday and the Command is closing in on the other members of the gang.
” Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, is assuring members of the public, particularly residents of Okpanam community, that they should go about their lawful business(es) without fear as the Command is not only able and willing, but also committed to the protection of life and property in the State”.
