Top police sources have confirmed to www.calitown.com that the heavy police presence this morning at the Cross River State House of Assembly complex, is a proactive measure to prevent what could be a breakdown of law and order, on the heels of the Federal High Court, Abuja, judgement, sacking the Speaker of the Assembly and several other members of the House who defected to the All Progressives Congress, APC.
Further proof of the role of the police this morning at the complex, was provided by Irene Ugbo, a Chief Superintendent of Police and CRS police spokesperson. “There is no cause for alarm, we are just doing our duty of maintaining law and order. Nobody is being harassed, nobody will be harassed but we must keep the peace so that negative elements will not seize any opportunity to break the law”, she told www.calitown.com.
Human and vehicular traffic has built up on Leopard Town road, around the Governor’s Office and the Old Secretariat and adjoining streets.
Speaker of the House, Eteng Williams, was unavailable to speak to us as calls to his phone number were unattended to.
