“Pathetically one Mr.Yerin Jowel on a radio station on Tuesday ranting uncontrollably to the expend of saying that the Federal Govt should reaward the surveillance job to ocean marine because they are comfortable with it.”
“Though It is never surprise to us and never sounds strange because we know him and his reasons for saying so.”
“It will interest the federal govt and the reading public to know that the said Yerin and his cohorts are agents of the contractors,which they pay peanuts to always speak for them.”
“The federal government should also be informed that most of the persons handling the surveillance job do not have touch with the communities because members of the communities have loss trust on them.”
“We’re therefore using this medium to call on Mr.President and all the security agencies to act fast on the petitions we sent as it will help to curtail the excessess of the said contractors and bring peace to our communities.”
“We’re therefore stating it clearly that we shall live no stone unturned and will employ all legal means to ensure that we put a total end to injustice and deprivation the said surveillance contractors are meting on our communities.”
