We are in like manner saddened by the spate of the trending insecurity in our

intensifying more stringent proactive measures in cubing the excesses of this
men of the underworld, by ensuring that the police are swiftly responsive to
emergency calls or situations such as this, with full alertness, and are
conversant with likely escape routes in every city terrain.

We herein humbly but sternly urge the security operatives in the state and the
Nigeria police force under the leadership of the Inspector General of police
to wade into this matter by bringing to book all the assailants, perpetrators
and their sponsors and all those in connection with this heinous and ungodly
act without exception.

We herein also want to admonish the general public not to undermine their
civic responsibility of providing the police and other security agencies useful
