He also stated that despite the brutality of the cultists, the Rivers State Police Command is ready to do great damage in retaliation.

The commission also sent out a stern warning to the murder perpetrators in the state, informing them that his command would no longer tolerate their actions.

“The DPOs must secure their areas and they must be ready to work even at night,” Adebanjo said.
