APC, PDP bicker over killings of policemen in Akwa Ibom

The ruling People’s Democratic Party and All Progressives Congress, have traded over words of the worsening security situation in Akwa Ibom State.

In the last couple of months, no fewer than five police stations have been ravaged and well over 20 policemen killed in Essien Udim, Ika, Ini and Abak local government areas in Akwa Ibom State by gunmen suspected to be members of Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB) and their militia wing, Eastern Security Network (ESN).

APC noted that the gunmen were deliberately planning to weaken the defense mechanism of the state with a view to overrunning it by targeting the security agencies.
