The Governor, represented by his Chief of Staff, Olorogun David Edevbie assured that government would continue to put in place measures to tackle the security challenges facing the state stressing that “What happened to late Miss Elozino Ogege last year is so unfortunate and heartbreaking, which tells us that all is not well in our society. This is why we are doing everything possible as a government to improve security in the state and ensure that security challenges are effectively tackled”.
