NCD Metropolitan Superintendent, Silva Sika this morning has condemned the actions of the opportunists who took to the streets causing havoc yesterday, stating that police will not hesitate to deal with them accordingly and within the confines of the law.
Sika while making his statement outlined that while the situation at hand is delicate, there are some out there that would like to take advantage of the aggrieved tribe members that took to the streets attacking people and members of the police force.
He warned that people should refrain from such activities or face the consequences.
“There are opportunist that have gone ahead to take this advantage of this situation and have a vested interest and gone ahead to social media and posting a lot of things to create chaos and problem in the city.”
A large number of unknown assailants believed to be from the same tribe as the young man found dead earlier this week at Gordons, took to Boroko and Gordons, running riot and attacking anyone commuting during that time.
Met Supt Sika further advised that people should not issue threats to the police and give time and space for the rule of law to take its cause.
