“The Command wishes to first of all set the record straight by stating that the operatives involved are not personnel of Federal SARS, Delta State, but Operatives of Zone ‘5’ Tactical Squad, based in Asaba, Delta State”.

While advising the victims to remain calm and repose confidence in the police to do justice in the matter, “the Command enjoins the public not to be quick in distrusting the police as the police hierarchy at all levels has always demonstrated the willingness and capacity to bring erring personnel to justice”, the release added.
