Security Challenges Are Not As Much As Where We Started From – Chief of Defence Staff

The country’s security risks are decreasing, according to the Chief of Defence Staff, Gen. Lucky Irabor.

Irabor made the remark during a church ceremony commemorating Armed Forces Remembrance Day this year. According to the CDS, the country’s present security concerns are not as severe as they were when they took office.

He stated,

 “I would like to specially commend members of the armed forces, especially the veterans who laid the foundation on which we are building upon to bring peace and security to every part of the country.

“There are challenges but the challenges are not as much as where we started from. That gives hope for everyone as we go into the year.

“There is ample opportunity to escalate the actions that brought the peace that we now enjoy and also to take it to another level where there would be no need for anyone to live in fear in any part of the country.”

In other news, Governor Nyesom Wike has issued a warrant for 19 people accused of running illicit refineries in Rivers.

On Sunday, January 9, Wike promised to expose other illegal refiners’ accomplices in a state-wide broadcast.

The Rivers State Governor also ordered the Rivers State Head of Service to investigate and perhaps recommend the prosecution of a Director in the Rivers State Civil Service for assisting the operation of illicit refineries in the state.

Wike also directed that individuals apprehended for unlawful trading and violating the motorbike ban in Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt, Rivers State’s two metropolitan Local Government Areas, be prosecuted immediately.

He reiterated the restriction on motorcycles in Obio/Akpor and Port Harcourt, as well as the prohibition on traders using improvised structures and umbrellas in G.R.A phases one and two.
