Ayade charges security agents to halt spate of violence in Calabar

Gov. Ben Ayade of Cross River has charged security agencies in the state to take legitimate actions to halt the spate of arson and carnage witnessed in some parts of Calabar.

 

The governor gave the charge in a statement on Sunday in Calabar by his Special Adviser, Media and Publicity, Mr Christian Ita.

 

Ayade enjoined the security agents to carry out house-to-house searches for looted property and arrest anyone involved in the looting of both public and private property in the state.

 

The governor, who said that he understood the pains of the people, however, underscored the need to protect the collective commonwealth of the people.

 

He added that the commonwealth of the people had come under threat by some persons who were desperately trying to discredit the peaceful disposition of the citizens of Cross River.

 

Ayade urged the security agencies to take legitimate actions to ensure the restoration of peace in the state, especially as the government was already working towards meeting the demands of the genuine #EndSARS protesters.

 

The governor also called on the citizens to rise up and defend their land from criminal elements that were bent on destroying the image of the state.
