The Pipeline and Products Marketing Company (PPMC) has threatened to shut down Warri depot.
A statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer in Delta State, Andrew Aniamaka quoted the Commissioner of Police, Mr Zanna Ibrahim as calling on marketers and all persons aggrieved over the postponement of the election of the Independent Marketers Association of Nigeria (IPMAN) Warri Depot not to take the laws into their own hands.
The Police Commissioner’s warning followed intelligence report that certain persons have threatened to shut down operations at PPMC Warri on Sunday over the failure to conduct election last Friday, and to drive home their demand for a date to be fixed for the election.
Ibrahim, while noting that the postponement had become necessary in view of the fact that one of the factions to the election did not partake in the screening exercise, called on all the parties to exercise restraint, particularly since there is a pending suit at the Federal High Court, Warri, filed by one of the factions to the election.
The Police boss reiterated his call for restraint and peace as security agencies would deal decisively with any person or group of persons who caused damage to any critical infrastructure or breach of public peace.(News Express)
