‘We did not withdraw police escorts from VIPs’ – Delta Police Command says


The Delta Police Command has denied reports that it had withdrawn policemen from escorting VIPs in the state.

Ag Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Bright Edafe, in a statement released to journalists in Warri, Delta State said;

“The attention of the Delta State Police Command has been drawn to a recent publication online which says ‘Police withdraw escort of VIPs to South-East and South-South”.

“The command, therefore, wishes to state that the Wireless Message quoted in the said publication was self-explanatory and that at no point in the said Wireless Message, did the command stop or withdraw Policemen from escorting VIPS to any of these two geographical zones as stated above.

“That the directive which was originated from the Department of Operations was meant as a guide for the officers and men of the department engaged in escort duties to always be at alert and not as misquoted or misconstrued.

“The cautionary message was only a step to guide the concerned officers on the need to be extra vigilant and ensure the safety of their lives and that of their principals against the backdrop of killings of Policemen and not to withdraw them”.
