Wike disclosed this on Monday when participants of the Naval Warfare College Course Four paid him a courtesy visit at Government House, Port Harcourt.

He appealed to security agencies to ensure that those who sabotage the government’s effort to eliminate bunkering are brought to justice.

“We are also procuring more gunboats for the Navy to fight pipeline vandalism and oil bunkering in the State.

“The issue of security should not be politicised as crime and criminality is not synonymous to a particular state.

“No Country or State can say that they do not have insecurity. Here in the State because we are working in synergy with security agencies, insecurity has reduced.

“Let me appeal that the efforts you put in to apprehend those who attack your personnel should also be applied to prosecute those who affect our economy,” he said.

Governor Wike noted that bunkering which affects the socio-economic development of the country negatively, should not be allowed to thrive.

KanyiDaily had also reported that Governor Wike presented 15 Toyota Land Cruiser Prado jeeps to lawmakers representing the state at the National Assembly and urged them to defend the interest of the state in the discharge of their duties.
