The All Progressives Congress, APC, has urged the Governor of the South-South states to urgently convene a meeting of stakeholders from the region to address the growing threats to the security of the region.

APC noted that the attacks in Rivers and Akwa Ibom states have shown that unless something urgent is done to engage stakeholders, the entire region may be sufficiently threatened.

Rivers State APC spokesman Chief Ogbonna Nwuke in a statement in Port Harcourt said the call has become necessary to prevent destabilization of the oil region.

Nwuke regretted that external forces were attacking the region, noting that it would be convenient for the region’s leaders to meet to seek internal solutions.

He said: “One stitch in time they say saves nine. We hope that South-South governors will convene a broad stakeholder meeting in the region to address South-South security threats.

“It is urgent; it is necessary, and we believe that now is the time to bring South-South people together to find solutions to external attacks.”

“This is the third time that an attack has been carried out on Rivers soil by people whose identities are unknown. As we speak, at least 21 security officers have died since the attacks began. “

He sympathized with the families of security personnel killed in the state, urging the people of Rivers to be vigilant and appealing to those who want to turn Rivers State into a battleground to desist.

He said: “As we pray for the repose of their souls, we also pray that the Good Lord will grant the families who left behind the strength to endure irreparable loss.

“However, we are concerned that those who may be behind these plots are beginning to create fear among our people. These people, whoever they are, are gradually expanding the frontiers of terror. “

He advised the public to support the police with useful information leading to the arrest of the criminal group targeting security formations, noting that what is happening goes beyond party lines and beyond politics.

“The security agents have met this time to fight back. Two people believed to be part of the assault squad that attacked formations in Rivers State were reportedly killed, according to the official version released by police.

“While we expect the Rivers State government and law enforcement agencies to fulfill their obligations in terms of protecting the individuals and institutions of the State, we call on all law-abiding citizens to support the authorities. by exchanging information, “he said. saying.
