Edo Govt Debunks Reports Of ISWAP Attack

Says Fleeing Bandits Resorting To Fuerilla Tactics

The Edo State Government has refuted claims that it was ISWAP that carried out the attack by fleeing bandits at Ibillo-Igarra Road Junction, where they burnt a Wabaizigan patrol vehicle on September 22, 2022 after a thorough investigation by the state security outfits involving the Police, Nigerian Army, Edo State Vigilante Network and Nigeria Civil Defence Corp.

“There is no evidence of ISWAP or its operatives in Edo State,” a statement signed by Chris Osa Nehikhare, Hon. Commissioner for Communication and Orientation, said.

“Government assures that it will continue to provide support to the security agencies in the state to tackle crime and criminality and also enhance patrols of the state’s borders to make the state most uncomfortable for the decimated bandits.

“The Edo State government restates its commitment to the safety of lives and property in the state and to the sustenance of a safe environment for citizens to go about their lawful businesses,” the statement added.
