As the nationwide protests continue to spread against the operations of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, in the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, the member representing the people of Ughelli Constituency II in the Delta State House of Assembly, Hon. Eric Oharisi, has condemned the killing of a policeman in the area.

The lawmaker described the attack on the police as barbaric.

He condoled with the families of the deceased policeman and that of the youth who sustained injuries during the face-off with operatives of the “Operation Safe Delta” last Saturday.

In a chat with newsmen, Hon. Oharisi appealed to the police authorities to release all those arrested during the protest in Ughelli.

Hon. Oharisi urged the protesters to sheathe their swords and allow peace to reign in Ughelli kingdom.

He also warned the protesters to stop taking laws into their hands, pointing out that he had waded into the disturbances in Ughelli with a view to calming down nerves.

While noting that the situation has been brought under control, Oharisi urged the youths to go about their legitimate businesses peacefully.

He stressed that the relevant security agencies and stakeholders have moved into the matter for a lasting solution to the problem.
