As part of efforts to control the destruction of banks’ properties due to the scarcity of the new naira notes, the Bayelsa State Police Command has warned residents of the State to shun any form of violence and destruction of banks and Automated Teller Machines across the State.

The Commissioner of Police, Bayelsa State Command, Ben Nebolisa Okolo, ordered Divisional Police Officers and other security operatives to be observant and watch out for miscreants.

“Miscreants, under any guise, are hereby warned to desist from carrying out any unlawful assembly to unleash violence in the state, as the Command will not allow any person(s) or group of persons to truncate the relative peace being enjoyed in the State,” it read.

In a statement issued by the State’s Police Public Relations Officer, SP Asinim Butswat, said the plight of the masses is known as the Central Bank of Nigeria aims to improve circulation of the new note.

The statement added, “The command understands the plight of the masses and we are hopeful that the new measures introduced by the CBN will improve the circulation of the currency in the coming days.”

The police, therefore, appeal to residents of the State to be law-abiding.
