Police in Rivers have debunked rumour that a divisional police officer (DPO) was beheaded in Oyigbo Local Government Area by hoodlums.
Rivers police spokesman Nnamdi Omoni confirmed to newsmen on Friday that the rumour was false.
“The DPO is alive, he is with me (here),” Mr Omoni said.
It was gathered that soldiers have also been deployed to the area, Eleme and oil mill junction on Aba Road.
Omoni said he has heard of violence in Oyigbo, but that he was yet to get a report from the area.
