Our heart goes out to the victims and their families of this heinous crime which has violated to the innocence of our state.

I Appeal for calm, support and cooperation of our people as security men comb through every nook and cranny of the Uyanga forest.

We are a peace-loving people and as such will not allow criminality of any hue, to find the fertile ground anywhere in our state.
We have made a request to the federal government to draft more troops to the Uyanga forest as well as the deployment of a Tucano aircraft.

Additionally,we have activated the Homeland security outfits and have engaged local hunters to assist in a private para-military capacity.

The state will also purchase more gunboats and patrol vehicle to protect our waterways and our highways just as we have activated the automatic security system on the entrance into calabar.

We once again appeal for calm as we take the battle to bandits.
