The Chairperson, Susan Serekara Nwikhana made this known during a courtesy visit to the state Commissioner of Police at his office in Port Harcourt.
Serekara appealed to the Police Commissioner to fish out such hideouts and bring perpetrators to book by checking suspected vehicles properly to enthrone a crime free society.
She commended the police for their efforts in reducing the crime rate in the state, saying women and girls are most vulnerable in the kidnapping and killings in the state.
She frowned at the situation where the police always opts for settlement of rape cases out of court which portends danger to the victim and advocated for stiffer penalties against culprits.
The NAWOJ Chairperson while calling for mutual understanding with the police, enjoined the command to treat matters concerning women and girls seriously.
She appealed to the Commissioner for the creation of a special desk specifically to handle gender based issues that affect women and girls.
“We commend you sir for your approach in fighting crime in Rivers State, we appeal sir that you set up a special team that will be responsible to handle gender issues especially issues that concerns women and girls. This will help for speedy responds in terms of investigation and court presses”, she said.
Responding the Commissioner of Police CP Friday Eboka assured that the command will clamped down on those involved in selling human parts.
“We are seriously working in ensuring that those involved in selling human parts and other related crimes are brought to book.”
He expresses happiness that the association acknowledged the reduction in kidnapping and some crimes in the state, assuring of his administration’s determination to provide quality service to the people.
He urged everyone to assist by providing relevant information.
