Ms. Iringe-Koko said the crisis had led to a ban on the activities of the PCRC executive.
The Commissioner of Police in Rivers, Tunde Ogunsakin, has ordered the dissolution of the executive of the Police Community Relations Committee, PCRC, in the state.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Grace Iringe-Koko, told journalists in Port Harcourt on Tuesday that the action was taken because of the endless crisis rocking the committee.
She said the commissioner had ordered that a caretaker committee be set up to oversee the activities of the committee and prepare grounds for the election and inauguration of a new executive.
“The commissioner of police, Rivers state command, has noticed with grave concern that the lingering crisis bothering on alleged maladministration, mismanagement, embezzlement, tenure elongation, rocking the PCRC Rivers state command chapter is seemingly endless,’’ she said.
Ms. Iringe-Koko said the crisis had led to a ban on the activities of the PCRC executive, adding that the ban did not lead to a peaceful resolution of the crisis.
“Knowing that PCRC is an integral part of the police, we, therefore, enjoin and encourage members to put up extra sacrifices in partnering with the police to make peace a permanent feature in Rivers State,” she said.
