I want to assure you that the Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, is collaborating well with our security agencies to not only stamp out crime and criminality, but to also prevent its occurrence anywhere in the State. The recent procurement of patrol vehicles and distribution of same to relevant security agencies, is a testimony to this fact. We also have in place, adequate legislations to tackle the germane issues you have raised here.”
