Rivers – Amid the political unrest rampant in Rivers, the state police command, led by the commissioner, Tunji Disu, has warned politicians to seek a lawful means to address grievances rather than resort to verbal attacks capable of triggering violence.

The warning coincides with the feud prevalent between the camp of Nyesom Wike, the minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and that of Governor Siminalayi Fubara in the state, Daily Trust reports.
