Banigo seeks community cooperation to fight criminality


By; Chuks Melford, Port Harcourt.
Rivers State Deputy Governor Dr. Ipalibo Harry Banigo has called on the people of the State, irrespective of their party inclinations to join hands with the State Governor, Chief (Barr) Nyesom Wike in tracking down criminal elements and cultists in the state.
According to Dr. Banigo, every peace loving Rivers citizen should unite   and offer useful tips to security agencies to fight the level of crime wave in the state rather than trade blames, pointing out that security is a collective responsibility.
In a Statement through her Press Secretary, Paul Damgbor, the Deputy Governor said the opposition party should not misrepresent the position of Governor Wike in seeking the support of the military to tackle kidnapping and cult activities in some parts of the State, stressing that the demand by an opposition party for military presence and participation for political reasons  is  anti democratic.
Dr. Banigo expressed surprise that while the Governor was working hard to encourage security agents to stem the tide of criminality and cult related crime in the State, some politicians are still in the unholy habit of playing politics with security issues.
