Police deny rift with Civil Defence

08 September 2014, 14:34

Lagos - The Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, on Sunday said there was no rift between the Police and the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).

Ojukwu, an Acting Commissioner of Police, said that the police and the NSCDC were members of the same family, working for one purpose.

He dismissed reports that some policemen attacked NSCDC operatives by their headquarters in Abuja as untrue.

"The Police and the Civil Defence are one family. Our relationship is that of a brother and sister of the same family. We don’t have any problem with them.

"All the negative stories going round town about different attacks are not true,’’ he said.

According to him, the police is still investigating the alleged attempt by a police inspector to fire at the Commandant General of the NSCDC, Dr Ade Abolurin in Lagos.

On August 22, NSCDC alleged that a police inspector attempted to fire at Abolurin in Ikorodu, Lagos.

The Corps, on Friday, also alleged that about 10 policemen launched an attack on its men in front of the NSCDC headquarters in Abuja.
