Rivers State governor, Nyesom Wike, has declared that no sane government would fold its arms and remain indifferent towards the unprecedented security threats orchestrated by non-State actors.

Governor Wike stated this when the Chief of Defence Staff, General Lucky Irabor and other top military officers paid him a courtesy call at the Government House in Port Harcourt.

The governor, who charged the Chief of Defence Staff to reduce the level of insurgency in the country, cited terrorism as one of the biggest existential threats to the country.

He advised the Army chief to bring his experience to bear as he has been brought in “to see how you can solve the security problems of this country.

“For us as a government, we have no choice but to support the security agencies, particularly, the Army now that we have terrorists’ activities in this country. I believe you will make us proud by ensuring you reduce the level of insurgency.”

Earlier, General Irabor commended Wike and the government of Rivers State for supporting the Army and other security agencies.
