“Yours sincerely is seriously worried about this inhuman development in our society therefore; it has become pertinent to call on Edo State Government to establish Neighbourhood Security Agency to tackle the trend of insecurity.

“On 31 March, 2017, the beloved wife of Hon. Vincent Uwadiae, Mrs. Tina Uwadiae was kidnapped with her two children.

“On 30 September 2017, popular DJ MOG was robbed and shut. Mr. Andy Ehanire was kidnapped as if that was not enough, Amb. Osayomore Joseph also kidnapped and the wife shut, Prof. Paul Otasowie was killed. This is just to mention but few”, he said.

He however called on the state and the federal governments to formulate direction to rescue and prevent criminal behaviour and also withstand the terrorizing dispositions of the criminal elements that have made the state unbearable for the citizens.

“The security situation in our dear state is gradually unfriendly and worrisome hence my sincere desire to draw state government and world generally attention to it and formulate direction to rescue and prevent criminal behaviour and also withstand the terrorizing dispositions of the men of the underworld to continuously molest, harass and intimidate the law abiding citizens.

“We can no longer sleep with our two eyes closed. I hereby condemned the activities of criminal elements and their behaviours to undermine the security of law abiding citizens”, he said
