The Nigerian Army says it has deployed troops to halt reported violence in some local government areas in Rivers.

Col. Aminu Iliyasu, Spokesman for Nigerian Army 6 Division, Port Harcourt, confirmed the deployment to the News Agency of (NAN) in Port Harcourt on Saturday.

Two persons were feared dead at Ogu in Ogu-Bolo Local Government Area while shootings were heard in Abonema town, Akuku Toru Local Government Area of the state.

Iliyasu said: “We are hearing that there are some skirmishes but we have not yet fully confirmed the situation.

“However, in order not to escalate the situation, our team has already been moved to the area to make sure that everything within the area is calm.

“We also did this to ensure that people go about and cast their votes without any form of molestation,” he said.

Iliyasu said the role of the army in the election was secondary and was only supporting the police and other security agencies.

He said the army would only act on the invitation of the police.

“So, if there is any emergency that would warrant our involvement, the police or any security agencies will alert the closest army team to calm fraying nerves,” he said.

Buhari reacts as Police discover torture center in his village 20191008 173707

President Muhammadu Buhari has commended the Police Force for the discovery of a child-theft racket in Kano State and fake correctional centers in Kaduna and Katsina states.

DAILY POST recalls that the Police last Monday discovered another torture centre meant to be a reformation place for children with character deformation in Daura, Katsina State.

The Police raided the centre following a riot by the inmates over excessive abuses.

Reacting to the discovery, Buhari in a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, on Saturday, urged the police to sustain these good efforts across the country.
He noted that such arrests were in line with his commitment to human rights and dignity of the citizens regardless of their age, religion and ethnicity.

Buhari said he would not support criminality under any guise, including the abduction of children and selling them off illegally.

He maintained that no responsible democratic government would tolerate the existence of the torture chambers and physical abuses of inmates in the name of rehabilitation of the victims.
He, therefore, lauded the efforts of the police in exposing these human rights abuses by individuals and criminal groups.

Buhari expressed optimism that these efforts would be sustained to check illegal activities of this nature.
The President appealed to members of the general public to remain vigilant and assist security agencies in crime prevention and control by reporting the existence of criminal activities around their communities.

He said: ”The sharing of human intelligence is everybody’s responsibility in order to make our society safe and this government is ever committed to supporting the police to be more effective in the performance of its duties through proper funding and motivation of its personnel.”
