“With this staggering number of casualties, no responsible government would want to allow the criminal elements to continue wrecking havoc.
“It will amaze you that over 80% of security personnel killed within two months of the crisis are from the eastern part of the country.
“We, therefore, urge members of the public to assist the security agents by providing them with vital information. This will go a long way in curtailing the high rate of insecurity in the zone.”
