A statement signed by Muhammed Labbo and Cassidy Madueke, the group’s Chairman and Secretary, respectively, in Abuja, called on politicians to learn to conduct themselves within the ambit of the law.

According to the statement, the Federal Government should act swiftly to arrest the unfortunate situation to forestall total breakdown of law and order in the state.

The statement said: "Security agencies should rise up to the task and fish out those behind the recent killings in Rivers.

"They should prosecute them to serve as deterrent to those who are bent on throwing the state into anarchy.

"We appeal to all political parties and politicians in Rivers to conduct themselves and their activities within the ambit of the law.

"We also condemn the recent provocative statements by Gov. Nyesom Wike and advise him to desist from making further reckless statements,’’ the statement.

It said that the statements were capable of emboldening his party members and supporters to unleash violence on opposition supporters and innocent citizens of the state.
