Rivers Security Council lauds Police over David West’s arrest
Rivers State Security Council has commended the Police for arresting the prime suspect of the serial killings, targeted at young women in parts of the state.
Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Dr. Tammy Danagogo at the end of an emergency meeting of the council in Port Harcourt, yesterday, said the state was impressed by the arrest of three suspects within a week.
“The Rivers State Government has absolute confidence in the ability of the Police and other security agencies to tackle the challenge posed by these killers who target young women,” Danagogo said.
He said that given the confession by the prime suspect of the killings, he has operated successfully in Lagos and Imo states and evaded arrest, but was apprehended in Rivers State because of the alertness of the Police in the state.
“The Police and other security agencies in Rivers State are on top of their game because of the support that they receive from the Rivers State Government under the leadership of Governor Nyesom Wike.
“These successes show the support given to security outfits like the Operation Sting and other covet security initiatives is yielding positive results,” he said.
He urged members of the public to remain vigilant and support the security agencies with credible information to fish out other accomplices of the suspected criminals, adding that the Council advised young women and other residents not to let down their guards despite the arrest of the prime suspect.
He explained that Wike had directed all the security agencies to step up security alertness across the state, assuring that the administration will continue to provide logistical and financial support for all operations to protect Rivers people.
