Governor Udom Emmanuel of the Akwa Ibom State has made a donation of N60M to the families of the security officers slain by gunmen in the state.
On Monday, May 11, he made the donation while paying a condolence visit to the command headquarters. He expressed sadness over their demise while condemning the killings.
Governor Udom urged the security forces to be on deck and and stand against the challenge.
“As a government, we condemn these senseless attacks and killing of security operatives in our state. I urge the command to rise to the occasion of containing the challenge.”
Meanwhile, the Governor was last in the news after he restated the commitment of his administration to combat drug abuse as he partners with the National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA.
According to him, his administration is strongly in support of campaigns against abuse of illicit drugs in the state and the country in general. NLEA boss, Mrs. Obot Bassey paid him a courtesy visit where they deliberated on matters concerning drug abuse.
He said: “I know these days, criminality has crept into almost all strata of the society. In the secondary schools these days you see young children getting involved, even up to University. Some of us did not know those things. You could only spell those things, we never saw it with our eyes. “We just discovered that there is no single criminal that you arrest, give him 24 hours he will become a normal human being and will start talking differently. But once he’s under the influence of the drugs he is completely a different human being. “We have taken the message, the message is that our people should get involved in this campaign, we can actually help minimize this in the society”.
