Rivers State Governor, Nyesom Wike has called for the change of service chiefs to allow for fresh ideas and strategy in tackling the threats to internal security in the country.
Wike made this call on Friday in Port Harcourt during the wreath-laying and parade ceremony to mark the 2021 Armed Forces Remembrance Day.
The governor hailed the efforts made so far by the country’s security chiefs in the battle against insurgents.
He, however, noted that despite full military engagement with Boko Haram and killer bandits, the threats appear to be overwhelming the country’s security agencies.
He expressed that Boko Haram, bandits, and killer herdsmen have continued to overrun communities, randomly killing and abducting helpless people.
He further added that these insurgents have also destroyed private and public property with relative ease.
He expressed that it is time for the Federal Government to take decisive action and end such a menace.
