Cross River State governor, Senator Ben Ayade, yesterday, reassured investors of the peaceful and calm nature of the state, intimating that the feat would not be compromised for business to thrive.

Ayade stated this at the Ikang water front in Bakassi Local Government Area, as part of proactive measures to check criminal activities, shortly after inspecting the reconnaissance operation embarked on by officers and men of the joint military task force in the area.

He maintained that with the advent of his signature projects including the construction of the seaport, there was need to clean up some black spots through the presence and combat readiness of the joint military task force.

“The Nigeria military, as you can see, is very strong, and the military operation is combat ready to flush out criminals that may want to use any of our communities as hideouts”, the governor said, adding: “I am impressed, the community is excited and the bad boys are running away from Calabar.”

Governor Ayade who was accompanied by his deputy, Professor Ivara Esu, affirmed that “Cross River can never be a safe haven for criminals. It was for this reason that we recently inaugurated Operation Skolombo, geared towards positioning the state as a no hiding place for criminals.”

Ayade also disclosed that through the operations, about 14 militia camps have been dislodged, adding that the exercise would be sustained to enable investors take advantage of the serene environment so created in the state to invest without fear or intimidation.

Also present at the operation were State Security Adviser (SSA) to the governor, Mr. Jude Ngaji, service chiefs in the state drawn from the army, air force, navy, and police, among others.

Highlights of the operation were the display of military gun boats and aircraft on the water ways, as well as the chanting of victory songs by the joint military task force operating in the area.
