According to the governor, this necessitated the need for those who have repented and want to be reintegrated into the society to take advantage of the amnesty by quitting their nefarious acts and surrendering their arms.
“The state is more determined now than before to clear all bandits and to achieve this, the expected equipment and additional recruitment of more Ebube-Agu personnel, working in collaboration with the security agencies in the state, will be used to clear all the waterways and rid the state of bandits, including crude-oil thieves.
“All the waterways are under surveillance with the delivery of new Naval Equipment to the Naval Base in Oguta,” he said.
Governor Uzodimma disclosed that the state would be hosting the annual Nigerian Army Day Celebration from June 30 to July 6, adding that no fewer than 10,000 personnel drawn from the army, navy, air force, and police among others would be in attendance.
These security operations, he stated, would be led by the chiefs of army staff, naval chief, and air staff, as well as the Inspector General of Police.
