While condemning the act, the RISAA boss said investigation is on-going to ascertain if the incident was a sabotage or negligence on the part of the advertising company.

“All necessary steps have been taken to ensure that this does not happen anymore to serve as a deterrent to any other organisation or company that does advertisement business in Rivers state,” he assured.

“As you can see this structure is shut down and is now under our custody.”
