The Inspector-General of Police, Ag.IGP Ibrahim K. Idris, on 1st July, 2016, conducted on-the-spot assessment and evaluation of security situation in some flash points in the creeks of Delta State.

In recent times, some riverine communities in the Niger-Delta region of Nigeria witnessed renewed militancy occasioned by pipeline and oil installations vandalization, thereby causing environmental and security challenges.

During a courtesy call on the Governor of Delta State, Senator Ifeanyi Okowa, IGP Idris said that one of the strategies to tackle crimes in the country will be the formation of Eminent Persons Forum in collaboration with State Governments and various communities. The Eminent Persons Forum will be engaged in conflict resolution arbitration.

The Governor congratulated the IGP on his well deserved appointment and promised to cooperate and assist the IGP in the task of crime management.

The IGP who was accompanied on the visit by the Commissioner of Police in charge Police Mobile Force, Commissioner of Police in charge Border Patrol, Heads of Operational and Tactical Teams as well as the Commissioner of Police, Delta State conducted aerial surveillance/patrol of some riverine communities, which include Ugborodo, Madawo, Oparaza and Camp Five.
