Abe1The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar has ordered a thorough probe into the alleged shooting of the senator representing Rivers South East senatorial district, Magnus Abe by the police in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, last Sunday.

The IG had directed a special team of investigators from the Force CID, Abuja, headed by Commissioner of Police, Idris Farouk, to visit the scene of the incident and interview all the actors, including the organizers of the event; the Save Rivers Movement, police officers and other key witnesses, with a view to obtaining a full and unbiased account of the incident that could aid ongoing investigations.

While the Rivers Police Command has since denied shooting the senator or using maximum force to disperse the rally, the State Government maintained that rubber bullets and teargas canisters were fired.

A statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba on Wednesday in Abuja, said Mr. Abubakar promised to ensure fairness and justice to all.

“The IG calls on the citizens of the state to cooperate with the investigative team, maintain calm and shun all inflammatory or presumptuous statements. He further urged the good people of Rivers State to continue to respect the laws of the land while going about their normal businesses”, it said.
