On Sunday, the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Zone 5, Shola David, has warned hoodlums to stay off the streets of Edo and Delta States.
David, briefing journalists before a strategic security meeting in Benin, assured residents of the State to go about their legitimate businesses without fear.
He also urged the media to do accurate reportage of the incidents to help check cases of fake news, saying it was aggravating the crisis.
He stressed that the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, had directed the police to occupy all their areas of operation to provide security.
“The IGP, however, warned troublemakers not to test the collective will of the nation by coming out to cause any further breakdown of law and order", he added.
