LAGOS DECEMBER 4TH (NEWSRANGERS)-The Cross River State Governor, Sen. Ben Ayade has just launched “Operations Akpakwu” to contain the rapid growth of crime in the State.

The State in recent times has become a safe haven for kidnapping and other crimes.

Personnel are drawn from the Army, Navy, Air Force and Civil Defence.
To enhance operations, the Governor handed over 100 patrol vehicles, ten power bikes and drones.

Speaking at the event, Ayade who was flanked by all the Service Commanders in the State, vowed to return the State, particularly Calabar, to the paradise it once was.

He said though statistics indicate that the State remains one of the safest in the country, he decried recent incidents of criminality, especially kidnappings in the State.

“Cross River State statistically remains the safest State in Nigeria, however as a State we are used to the culture of zero kidnapping, zero cultism and zero robbery.

“In recent past, there has been an increase in the number of crime within the Niger Delta and the country as a whole arising from the difficulty orchestrated by #EndSARS as well as COVID-19 which brought a general poverty and general hardship upon the entire world”, the Governor said.

According to him, “the instruction is very clear from Abuja, you must deal decisively with any form of criminality, you must deal decisively with any form of banditry, gangsterism, kidnapping of any form.

“Let this therefore be a strong message to every Cross Riverian and non indigenes alike, that as far as you are resident in Cross River State, today is the end of that criminality.
