His words, “Today I am proud to tell you that our working round the clock has yielded another fruit, recently you will agree with me there is a slight increase in robbery in the state”.
Continuing, Hogan said: “For us to prove that we have security agencies in the state is to work round the clock, you will also agree with me that the MCC area of Calabar has been under raid by robbers but today luck ran out of two that have been gunned down”.
