Amaechi Admit Failure To Provide Security

The governor of Rivers State Chibuike Amaechi who is the state chief security officer has decried his failure on security of lives and properties of its citizenry

Amaechi stated this in a church service at St. Barnabas Anglican Church, Elekahia on Sunday  when he addressed the congregation on the abduction of the Arch. Bishop of the Anglican Communion Most Rt. Rev. Ignatus Kattey.

Kattey as stated was on Saturday September 7, 2013 at Aleto in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State kidnapped by unknown gunmen and later abandoned his wife.

However, the Police Commissioner of the state, Mr. Mbu Joseph Mbu has recently addressed newsmen in his office that the crime rate was declining in the state.

The Police Commissioner used the medium to summarize achievement made so far by the police.

Mbu told newsmen that 15 kidnappers were killed by the police in combat, 29 charged to court, 9 kidnapped victims rescued in the month of August, as he paraded over 50 suspects.

Also outlined to the press statement were seven AK47, 1 pump action, 10 locally made pistols, 3 locally made guns, 170 ammunition 7.2min, 21 ammunition 9mm, and 59 cartridges as well as 5 magazines, 20 vehicles, 2 matchets, 17 mobile phones, 3laptops, 1 cutter, 1 outboard engine 75HP and cash N736,660.

Mr. Mbu added that those who lost their vehicle through stealing despite the distance of where it happened should come to Port Harcourt to check for identification and collection.

He further advised the general public to support the police by giving useful  information of crime and criminals to the police for appropriate action as the police cannot eradicate crime alone. ###
