Ogba Zoo attack: We are on top of security situation says Obaseki
In reacting to the Ogba Zoo attack, Governor Obaseki has assured the Edo people and Nigerians that his administration is on top of the security situation in the state.
Obaseki gave the assurance after an emergency meeting with security agencies at the Government House in Benin City.
He condemned the horrific killings of 3 policemen and abducted Chief Executive of “Ogba Zoological Garden and Nature Park”, Andy Osa Enahire, on Sunday in Benin City.
In his statement “Our hearts are with the families of the slain police officers and we promise to deploy all the resources at our disposal to ensure Mr Ehanire returns to his family in the shortest time possible, and unhurt, …”
“When the Edo State Government received intelligence report on the kidnap of Mr. Osa Ehanire, we immediately contacted the relevant security agencies to do all within their powers to secure his release.”
Recall that a statement was published immediate after the incidence on Sunday and it reads;
The management of Ogba Zoo and Nature Park in Benin closed to a rude shock this evening as their proprietor and brother of Senator Daisy Ehanire Danjuma, Mr Andy Danjuma was violently kidnapped.
Sen Daisy Danjuma’s brother was kidnapped in Benin City and two policemen attached to him are feared dead from gun exchange from the kidnappers.
As at press time, the kidnappers are said to be yet to establish contact with the families or the Police.
Benin City is another wild place in Edo State where crime rate is extremely high. The government should really pay attention to security in this area.
