The visit was in reaction to the vandalization of some police facilities in Anambra Central Senatorial District during the End SARS protest which was unfortunately hijacked by hoodlums who derailed from the genuine intention of the protest against police brutality to cause unrest and vandalize public properties.

During the visit, Senator Ekwunife who was received by the Divisional Police Officer, Remijuice Ekure expressed her displeasure over the destruction of properties and loss of lives recorded during the riots that followed the protest. She condemned the actions of those involved in the unfortunate incident.

Speaking she said, “We are here to inspect the extent of damage done in this police facility to enable us partner with the various stakeholders to ensure that we render whatever support that is necessary to encourage the police in the discharge of their duties.

“We are all deeply saddened by the twist of events which led to this nationwide destruction of properties and loss of lives and it is my belief that with the current efforts being made by government to reform the police, these sad events will not reoccur”.
