The new measure, the governor said, would lead to demolition of some residential buildings and structures close to oil pipes to protect the lives of innocent residents.


His words: “We just finished our regular security meeting and I am reiterating our assurance to residents that all security operatives in the state are well motivated to ensure security of lives and property. We have reviewed the current the security situation in the state. This has helped us to further re-energise our strategy that will make our state safe and secure for lives and businesses.
