A police officer in front of the Government House, Port Harcourt, fired gunshots in the air to disperse members of the Rivers State #COVID19 Taskforce who were protesting non-payment of eight months’ salary arrears.

Our Correspondent reports that the policeman despite pleas from the protesters said he got the authority from the State Police Command to disperse them. The protesters said they are stranded and have not been able to take care of their families.
