The Rivers State Police Command
yesterday announced a ban on all political rallies in the state, saying
the measure came as a result of increasing political tension in the
state.

In a statement in Port Harcourt, police
command spokesman Ahmad K. Muhammad said all public activities involving
rallies “under any coloration or name” would not be allowed to take
place.

“The Rivers State Police Command wishes to inform members of
the public that as a result of increasing political tension in the
state, the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Police Command, has
banned all political rallies in the state under whatever coloration or
name,” the statement said.
“Accordingly, all public activities
involving rallies of Grassroots Development Initiative (GDI), Save
Rivers Movement (SRM), Rivers Leadership Advancement Foundation
(RIVLEAF) and whatever other names, are hereby banned.

“Rivers State
Police Command will not, I repeat, will not provide security for any
group in whatever guise. Party membership drive is allowed strictly as
stipulated in Electoral Act 2010 as amended and INEC regulations,
please.”

The police ban on rallies came in the wake of several clashes between them and supporters of Governor Rotimi Amaechi.


The
command came under criticism for alleged bias by allowing the Nyesom
Wike-backed GDI to hold rallies while stopping the groups supporting
Amaechi.
