The Delta State Police Command has debunked reports making round that a “6-6 curfew has been declared in Okpanam with effect from today to enable security agencies carry out their job”.

A statement by the police signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, DSP Bright Edafe, said the rumour “is not only laughable but completely ridiculous and a lie put up by some mischievous persons to cause confusion among residents of the community.”

According to the statement, “the Commissioner of Police Delta State, CP Ari Muhammed Ali, FCIA, PSC+ is assuring members of the public, particularly residents of Okpanam community that they should go about their lawful business(es) without fear as the Command is not only able and willing, but also committed to the protection life and property in the State.”
