Service Commanders from the Army, Navy, MOPOL and the Air Force have visited Akpabuyo and Bakassi local government areas of Cross River State to have a first-hand knowledge of the situation on ground.

This is to further buttress the fact that the local government areas are peaceful.

Leading a convoy of the military and paramilitary to both councils in a show of force operation, Police Commissioner, Jimoh Ozi-Obeh disclosed to newsmen that no part of the state has been overtaken by any militant group.

He sued for calm on the part of residents reassuring them that all security agencies in the state remain committed to their safety as there is no cause for alarm.

Meanwhile, some residents who came out at the busy bitch Market in Bakassi to welcome the convoy said that they have had no reason to flee to Cameroon or live in panic.

There had been rumours making the rounds that the militant group, Bakassi Strike Force has taken over the control of Akpabuyo and Bakassi local government areas of the state.

This, the Cross River State Commissioner of Police, Jimoh Ozi-Obeh debunked in a chat with Channels Television on Sunday. (Channels TV)
