Bayelsa State Governor, Mr. Henry Seriake Dickson, has expressed deep concern over the spate of kidnapping and criminality in parts of the State and restated his commitment to stem the unfortunate tide of events.
To this end, he has announced plans to unfold a comprehensive security framework to address the current trend of insecurity across the state.
Consequently, the governor warned that anybody found culpable will be dealt with in accordance with the criminal laws of the state and country.
A statement issued Tuesday in Yenagoa by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Daniel Iworiso-Markson, said while it wants to believe that there is no motive behind the growing spate of kidnappings and other acts of criminality, it was also stepping up efforts at ensuring the safety of lives and property of Bayelsans and other residents.
At a crucial meeting Tuesday in Government House, involving members of the State Security Council, the government called on youths not allow themselves to be used under whatever guise to perpetrate any crime, as no one will be spared when caught.
The statement enjoined the people of the State to go about their legitimate duties without any fear of molestation, as the various security agencies have been put on red alert to track down criminals and their cohorts.
