Speaking on Tuesday, the Governor said such decision is taken by the State Security Council.

He said, “I don’t take decisions alone in the fight against . All decisions are taken by the State Security Council and they are for the overall interest of Rivers people.

You know people applaud government decisions when it suits them but when it does not favour them they say it is politically motivated.
