The Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, on Monday visited Port Harcourt, Rivers State capital, without visiting the state Governor, Rotimi Amaechi.
Abubakar was in the state to inaugurate 100 Prado Sports Utility Vans donated to the nine Niger Delta state Police commands by the Niger Delta Development Commission.
The IGP also did not address officers and men of the command, who waited for several hours to hear from their boss.
The state Deputy Commissioner of Police, Operations, Mr. Joshak Habila, addressed officers and men of the Police. He thanked them for coming out enmasse.
It was at that pointed that security operatives, especially those in their ceremonial uniforms, who had waited to mount a guard of honour, left in disappointment.
Also, journalists, who waited anxiously to get Abubakar’s views on the crisis rocking the state and the controversy surrounding the decision of the state Police Commissioner, Mr. Joseph Mbu, to ban rallies, left in disappointment.
