The Command commended journalists for always reporting security situations in the state, saying it has made the work of personnel much easier.

Briefing journalists at Police headquarters, Amawbia, the Command spokesman, Tochukwu Ikenga, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) said that in the past one week the Command in conjunction with other security agencies have made inroads in crime bursting.
