Governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike has described Saturday night’s attack on security operatives as barbaric and dastardly act.
Recall that unknown gunmen attacked security personnel along Omagwa/Isiokpo/Elele Owerri Road in Ikwerre LGA of the State, killing five of the operatives.
Wike in a statement on Sunday by his special assistant on Media, Kevin Ebiri said there is no justification for such a heinous and condemnable attack targeted against innocent security personnel on legitimate duty of protecting life and property in the State.
“The Government of Rivers State is saddened by the unwarranted callous attack on security personnel. We offer our sympathies to the relatives of those who lost their lives in the attack.
“We condemn this heinous act, share the grief of the security agencies and convey our sincere condolences.”
The governor, who charged the security agencies to be vigilant, affirmed that the Government and people of Rivers State stands in solidarity with security agencies at this difficult times of this unwarranted and mindless violence.
Governor Wike, has therefore demanded that the perpetrators of the attack must be fished out and brought to justice.
