House of Rep Mandates Security Agencies to Address Incidence of Kidnappings Around Waterways of Cross River State

   The House of Representatives today mandated security agencies to address the incidence of kidnappings and other security challenges around the waterways of Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River State

 

The resolution followed the adoption of a motion moved by Hon. Alex Egbona, (APC, Cross River) where the lawmaker alleged that, the increased criminal activities by syndicates who specialize in kidnapping and other forms of militancy around the waterways in Yakurr Local Government Area of Cross River State has caused more harm than good in the Local Government. Our correspondent Nathan Williams reports that the lawmaker notes that those criminals have forced law-abiding residents of those coastal and riverine communities to flee their homes for fear of being abducted or killed.

 

The House therefore urged the Inspector General of Police to deploy troops and beef up security to put an end to criminal activities in Abi/Yakurr constituency in order to forestall further loss of lives and properties and also mandate the Committee on Police Affairs to ensure compliance.
