The Executive Chairman of Khana Local Government, Dr. Thomas Bariere has expressed concern over Thursday evening attack in Okwale Community of Nyo-Khana Kingdom by suspected cultists which led to destruction of many properties in the area.
The visibly angry Chairman, who expressed regret at the development, said if left unchecked, the relative peace being enjoyed in Khana LGA would be seriously threatened.
Dr. Thomas, who was accompanied in the visit by security agents and other top government officials, urged citizens to be proactive and ensure that crimes and criminality did not thrive in their localities.
The Council boss frowned at the hypocritical nature of some persons that claim to support the government in the day while aiding criminals with information to unleash terror on their own people.
He said that security agencies cannot defeat crime and criminality alone without the support of the locals and therefore charged the people to be on alert at all times so as not to allow our hitherto peaceful LGA become rampant.
The Khana council boss further offered the sum of One Million Naira (1,000,000) as reward for anyone with useful information that could lead to the arrest of any known cultist in the community.
