Youths of Ndokwa East, under the umbrella of Ndokwa East Community Youth Council (NECYC), have condemned, in very strong terms, recent attacks on police formations across the country, especially the burning down of the Ashaka police station by unidentified hoodlums on Sunday.
The youths, in a statement issued on their behalf by the President General of NECYC, Comrade Prince Bright Enuesike and Secretary, Comrade Ekene Odunuwe, said the situation had become increasingly worrisome as it was a clear signal to impending breakdown of law and order in the society due to the effect it would have on the morale of police personnel.
NECYC instructed all Presidents and leaders of community youth bodies under its watch to mobilize and assist local and national security apparatuses in curbing crime and violence in order to strengthen security and further guarantee the safety of lives and property of the people.
The group urged the police not to be discouraged and called for investigation into the Ashaka attack with a view to fishing out the perpetrators.
The Acting Spokesperson of the Delta State Police Command, DSP Bright Edafe, had, in a press release on Sunday, confirmed the attack on the police station by unidentified gunmen numbering over 20.
He said the hoodlums blew up the station with Improvised Explosive Device, IEDS, but that no life was lost and no arm was taken.
