He reasoned that if nothing is done urgently to re-assure them of their security, a severe setback would have been afflicted on them without intent.

He therefore called on the Inspector General of Police, the State Security Service, the governors of the states within the zone as the chief security officers in their states and others to rise to the challenge.

In a related development, the Progressive People’s Alliance (PPA) gubernatorial candidate in the state, Iyom Uche Lilian Ekwunife has promised the indigenes of positive change in the state.
