“We have created an opportunity for everybody to come to Calabar for the carnival and end 2016, but as you do so, take a look at the array of vehicles that are here. That tells you of the level of security, level of safety that you would enjoy once you come to Calabar. We actually have the Homeland Security Service. The Homeland Security Service is a team of young graduates trained in the scheme of security, protection of lives and property he added”.
The state security adviser, Mr. Jude Ngaji, described the event as epoch making in the annals of the state.
