“So we expect everybody to respect it and not take laws into their hands and allow peace to continue as it is.

“Sincerely, you know our officers have been out for the past three days. I just finished addressing them and I thank them for the good job they have done.

“They have been out since 4 a.m., and they just came back. We are not taking it lightly, we are ready to go.

“Our officers have been on a show of force and we have had additional men given to us from the Headquarters.

“This is just to assure members of the public that we are ready to do our jobs of protecting lives and properties.

“We have warned anybody who would want to take laws into their hands.

“I want to use this opportunity to talk to parents to call their children to order.

“Talk to them so that their children will not be used as cannon folds in this crisis.

“Everything that has to do with government property and every human being in this community would be protected,” CP Disu said.
