In the last few days, the Edo State Government has observed the activities of some hoodlums who have resorted to causing mayhem, unleashing terror on the citizenry and undermining efforts to maintain peace and order in the State.
The State Government has taken actions to quell the violence and irresponsible acts even as suspects have been apprehended and taken into custody.
We stress without equivocation that no matter the campaign of terror, resort to violence and evil ploy to blackmail and tarnish the image of government, the State will stop at nothing and spare no expense in fishing out any perpetrator of these criminal activities.
The State Government therefore advises parents and guardians to restrain their children and wards from engaging in actions that imperil the lives of others, which is intended to create a sense of insecurity in the State. No one will be spared, and we will ensure that the long arm of the Law catches up with anyone found culpable in these dastardly acts.
The public should be rest assured that the government will continue to live up to its duty of protecting the lives and property of the citizenry. We urge everyone to go about their lawful businesses in peace.
