Herdsmen, Kidnappers Have Taken Over Edo Forests – Oba of Benin

The Benin Royal father, Omo N’ Oba N’ Edo Uku Akpolokpolo, Oba Ewuare II, has raised the alarm that criminal elements, including bandits and herdsmen, are building camps in forests within his kingdom.
The Oba, who disclosed this when he met with Enigie in Benin kingdom in Benin on Wednesday, called on all Benin people to be more vigilant in their communities.
Oba Square II directed the Enigie to nominate credible persons from the various villages in the kingdom to be part of the Security Surveillance Team soon to be set up by the Edo State Government.
The Benin monarch, disclosed that the government has resolved to set up the Security Surveillance Team to help identify criminals and their hideouts throughout the state.
Chief Press Secretary to the Oba, Comrade Desmond Agbama, in a press statement, stated that the Oba told the Enigie that investigations had revealed that herdsmen and kidnappers, as well as other sets of criminals, have established camps in the forests in the various villages in Edo State.
He stressed the need for the Enigie and their people to provide information that would help security agencies dislodge such criminal camps in the forests.
The Oba said those to be nominated by the Enigie would be thoroughly screened to ascertain their integrity and uprightness in carrying out the function and warned the Enigie not to usurp their powers once nominated.
He therefore charged those to be nominated to do their work diligently and truthfully and report any criminal or person with questionable character to the Enigie who will in turn forward same to the relevant security agencies for necessary action.
