“An account controlled by the Ikokwu 5 and RIVCSO will be publicized for this purpose. The campaign has moved from noise and protest in Port Harcourt to the courts, national assembly and protest in Abuja to force the Inspector General of Police,IGP, to prosecute SP Benson Adetuyi, the former Commander of the infamous E-Crack Squad. All of these can only achieved with resources and tact.”
