Bayside shanties perceived to be harboring criminal elements in Calabar, the Cross River State capital, were Tuesday raided and destroyed in a renewed war against insecurity in the state.

This comes less than a week after the inauguration of the “Operation Show of Force” by governor, Ben Ayade last Friday, a codename for the onslaught by the state government to curb the rising level of insecurity.

The State Security Adviser, Mr. Jude Ngaji, while addressing journalists shortly after one of the bayside shanties located at Obufa Esuk community behind the University of Calabar, where a lecturer, his wife and child were abducted recently, said all ingress and egress routes were manned by security operatives to checkmate the activities of “the bad guys”.

Jude said that, “The governor made it very clear, he said no more hiding place for criminals. First of all, you have seen it clearly, this is where the lecturers were taken out from and we saw a deliberate conspiracy between these fishermen and those kidnappers.

“We have taken out the major route (and) that is how we intend to carry out the fight to these guys. This just started, we have other places (and) we will continue to hit these places, so there will be no hiding place for the bad guys”.
