Bayelsa State Governor, Seriake Dickson, has called on the Federal Government to intervene in the alleged corruption matter between the police and Senator Isa Misau.
Both parties have been trading words over the acceptance of gratification from corporate organizations in exchange for security.
In a statement on Tuesday by the Governor’s Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, he stated that the two warring parties must sheath their sword and embrace peace.
He also appealed to the Federal government to swing into the matter before the case is blown beyond proportion.
“Those of us who have passed through the force have a duty to work with the police to make it strong and better. Those of us who have been in and out of uniform owe the organization the support that it desires from
people who have had the privilege to serve the police.
“On no account should we denigrate the police for what we owe the police support to enable it to overcome the multifarious problems confronting the force which in my opinion is a critical institution of state.”
