Cross River State House Of Assembly has invited the Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG Zone 6, Mr. Adisa Baba Bolanta, Commissioner of Police Cross River State Command, Mr. Henry Fadairo, the State Director of the Department of State Security DSS, the Attorney General of Cross River State, Barrister Joe Abang and the Cross River State Security Adviser, Mr. Jude Ngaji to attend an Executive Session of the House on Monday 13th June 2016, to brief the House members on the security situation in Cross River State.

In a motion of urgent public importance initiated by the Leader of the House, Hon. Moses Ucheche representing Obanliku state Constituency, the House queried the spate of insecurity, crime and disorder resulting to increased kidnapping and armed robbery in the state capital and noted that the relevant government agencies are not performing their statutory and constitutional responsibility.

The invitation to the agencies will offer them the opportunity to offer public explanation to the House ahead of relevant legislative action.

CrossRiverWatch has reported repeatedly that insecurity has heightened in the state capital in recent months with rising numbers of kidnappings for ransom, brazen robberies and snatching of valuables without intervention from the security agencies.
