Killers of security operatives in Rivers state have been arrested
Suspected killers of security operatives in Rivers state have been arrested.
This was disclosed by the Governor of Rivers state, Nyesom Wike while speaking during a broadcast on Saturday.
According to Nyesom Wike, the security measures put in place to stop the killing of security personnel have yielded positive results.
The governor also announced the relaxation of the curfew in Obio-Akpor and Port Harcourt LGAs as well as Port Harcourt International Airport.
“Thank heavens, those responsible for the premeditated ambushes and murders of security personnel in the state have been apprehended and are now facing the bitter venom of our laws as none that is proven to be criminally liable will escape the fury and crushing impact of justice,” Wike said.
“We wish to reassure every citizen and resident that we are able, willing and ready to act directly and decisively, and at any time, with the full weight of our government to forestall every security threat to our State from any person, group or quarters.
“Consequently, the current nighttime curfew in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor local government areas will now be effective from 8.30 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. from Sunday 16th May 2021, while the starting and closing time-frame of 7.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. still continues to apply to the prevailing curfew in the rest of the 21 Local Government Areas of the State until further notice.
“The nation’s security agencies are on ground to strictly enforce the state-wide curfew as reviewed and arrest and prosecute any intransigent person or group that may fail to comply.”
