Omoni, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, said the police would “go underground” as well as intensify intelligence gathering to arrest notorious criminals in Rivers.
He appealed to the public to assist the police with meaningful information that could lead to the arrest of criminals in their communities.
“The public should be security conscious and at alert on what is going on in their environment,” Omoni said.
