He said that the meeting attended by all the security chiefs, agreed on areas where more efforts were required to ensure law and order.

“We all know what has been happening in the state, the killings, burning of houses and looting of houses that were vacated by the locals.

‘’Those arrested who were engaged in looting when the locals fled their houses are under our custody, as soon as the investigation is through, they would be charged to court, we are still on it,’’ he said .

On the newly inuagurated local government transition committee chairmen, he said that Divisional Police Officers have been directed to ensure a smooth process.
