…Says Gov Oborevwori focused on enhanced peace, security to boost investors inflow

Within the last one year of governor Sheriff Oborevwori’s administration, Delta State Government, the State Command of the Nigerian Police and other security agencies recorded significant progress in the area of enhanced security by flushing out a reasonable number of criminal elements from Asaba, the state capital, and across the state.

Director General of Delta State Orientation and Communications Bureau, Dr Latimore Oghenesivbe, gave the hint during a radio interview on Tuesday, saying that government will continue to provide the necessary support to the police and other security agencies, so as to further enhance their operational capabilities.

He said local vigilantes and hunters operations within their localities and communities have been activated across the 25 local government areas of the state, to effectively complement conventional security operatives, while assuring farmers and the travelling public that the state governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, will continue to give priority attention to a safe and secured Delta.

Dr Oghenesivbe further stated that Delta State is not listed, and will not be listed as one of the red zones of banditry and kidnapping in Nigeria, pointing out that apart from few reported cases of security breaches in some communities, and occasionally along the East West Road, Delta State remain one of the safest state for investment in Nigeria.

He appealed to members of the opposition political parties and their proxies in the social media space to desist from raising false alarm over nonexistent security breaches, as can be seen from alleged cases of rapid kidnapping in some communities, and along the East West Road without disclosing the identities of victims.

“Delta State is very safe for Investments. The state governor, Rt Hon Sheriff Oborevwori, is committed to consistently protect life and property in line with his constitutional mandate .

“The state government has performed creditably well in providing logistics support and equipment to boost the operations of security agencies in the state, and will do more to secure Delta.

“At the moment, our local bushes and forests are being searched discreetly, and government is deploying result oriented strategies in this regard. Gradually and systematically, criminal elements and bandits shall be flushed out, Delta will be too hot for them to thrive.

“Delta State is a choice destination for Nigerians, from across the country, because of her economic potentials. We are hospitable people, however, the state government will not accommodate unrepentant criminal elements.

“Gov Sheriff Oborevwori will continue to do the needful to partner security agencies, local vigilantes and traditional hunters to patrol our forests, roads and identified red spots from time to time,” Oghenesivbe assured.
