Meanwhile, a security analyst Stanley Nsofor is asking the new Commissioner of Police Olatunji Disu to take his hands off partisan politics if he must deliver the goods for the people of Rivers State. He warned that keeping an eye on partisan politics will lead to his failure. Stanley Nsofor urges the new CP to concentrate on his major task of securing the State. He further said that another approach that the CP can use to bring down the crime rate in Rivers State is through the mopping up of arms from unauthorized persons. He revealed that there are so many arms in the hands of some state actors and that is why they can perpetuate evil. He said those arms should be collected from them either by amnesty or by head gun approach. Adding that if this is done, the crime rate will be reduced.
