Adamu Mohammed, Inspector General of Police
Rivers State Security Council has commended the Nigeria Police for arresting the prime suspect of the ritual  killings targeted at young women in parts of the state.
Addressing journalists at the Government House Port Harcourt after an emergency meeting of the Rivers State Security Council presided over by Rivers State Governor,  Nyesom Ezenwo Wike on Friday,  Secretary to the Rivers State Government, Dr Tammy  Danagogo said that the meeting  was impressed by the successes recorded by the Police in the last few days,  especially the arrest  of three suspects.
The Secretary to the Rivers State Government said that the meeting commended the painstaking efforts of the Nigeria Police and other security agencies,  which have led to improved security across the state.
“The Rivers State Government has absolute confidence in the ability of the Police and other security agencies to tackle the challenge posed by these killers who target young women “, Dr. Danagogo said.
He said that given the confession by the prime suspect of the  killings,  he has operated successfully in Lagos and Imo States and evaded arrest, but was apprehended in Rivers State because of the alertness of the Police in the state.
“The Police and other security agencies in Rivers State are on top of their game because of the support that they  receive from the Rivers State Government under the leadership of Governor Wike.
“These successes show that the support given to security outfits like the Operation Sting and other covert security initiatives is yielding positive results “, he said.
Dr Danagogo urged members of the public  to remain vigilant and support  the security agencies with credible information  to fish out other accomplices of the suspected criminals.
He said that the Rivers State Security Council advised young women and other residents not to let down their guards despite the arrest of the prime suspect.
He informed  that the Rivers State Governor directed all the security agencies to step up security alertness across the state, assuring  that the administration will continue to provide logistical and financial support  for all operations  to protect Rivers people.
