Governor Nyesom Wike of Rivers State has said  “those responsible for the premeditated and brutal ambushes and murders of security personnel in the State have been apprehended and are now facing the bitter venom of our laws as none that is proven to be criminally liable will escape the fury and crushing impact of justice.”
Wike stated this on Saturday during a broadcast.
Commending  the people of the state , he said  “We wish to again thank you all for your kind support for all the measures we have undertaken so far to check the recent intermittent breaks to our security by the predetermined attacks on security checkpoints and the resultant killing of some security personnel on our own soil.
“We wish to further appreciate and commend you for your steadfastness in the midst of the socio-economic discomforts, dislocations and troubles caused by the proactive actions we have been constrained to enforce in response to the reprehensible assaults on our collective peace and security by the faceless terrorists.”
Wike then said  “Thank heavens, those responsible for the premeditated and brutal ambushes and murders of security personnel in the State have been apprehended and are now facing the bitter venom of our laws as none that is proven to be criminally liable will escape the fury and crushing impact of justice.”
He assured ” every citizen and resident that we are able, willing and ready to act directly and decisively, and at any time, with the full weight of our government to forestall every security threat to our State from any person, group or quarters.”
On the curfew introduced in the wake of the crisis, he said ” For now, after yet another review of the prevailing security situation and in particular, the effect of the curfew on our citizens, the State Security Council has decided to relax the curfew time a little for Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt Local Government Areas only.
“Consequently, the current night time curfew in Port Harcourt and Obio/Akpor Local Government Areas will now be effective from 8.30 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. from Sunday 16th May 2021, while the prevailing starting to closing time-frame of 7.00 p.m. to 6.00 a.m. still continues to apply to the curfew in the rest of the 21 Local Government Areas of the State until further notice.”
Governor Wike said “The nation’s security agencies are on ground to strictly enforce the State-wide curfew as reviewed and arrest and prosecute any intransigent person or group that may fail to comply.”
