He said power crazed politicians were ripping the laws of the country apart.
Sekum also warned the business community to brace for the worst indicating political trends were indicative of a Police state in the making. He said:
“This developing trend is indicative of a police state in the making and is a serious threat to public safety and properties."Mr Sekum said no one is above the law and the police force must perform their constitutional duties without political influence.
He also called for the leaders and Police Commissioner to work within the dictates of the constitution.
