Foremost PDP governorship aspirant in Edo state, Engr Gideon Ikhine, has showered praises on commander and members of the Neighborhood Watch (Vigilante) in Edo Central Senatorial District. This followed the series of successful foiling of the attempts to smuggle some people from the northern parts of the country into Edo state despite the interstate lockdown occasioned by the outbreak of the Coronavirus virus.
It would be recalled that the president, had imposed an interstate travel ban as a measure to curtain the spread of the virus. Surprisingly however, there has been an influx of northerners hidden inside trucks and trailers into Edo state.
The Neighborhood Watch has been intercepting a number of trucks and trailers where people are hidden to smuggle them into the state under the watch of security operatives.
Engr Gideon Ikhine commended the commander and members of the Neighborhood Watch in Edo Central for not compromising the security of lives in the state. He reinstated his commitment to ensuring that the security of the people in the state is not in anyway jeopardize
Engr Gideon Ikhine called on the Edo state government to encourage the Neighborhood Watch all around the border towns of Edo state to be on the watch out for any security breach concerning the spread of the Coronavirus.
