Wike explained that the establishment of a task force to man the borders became necessary because of the likelihood of sabotage from federal security agencies.

This decision is coming following the clash between the Rivers Governor, Federal Government of Nigeria and oil companies in the State, which led to the redeployment of the State Commissioner of Police.
