‘Kidnapping is decreasing in Calabar’-NNS Boss


Commodore Salihu Jibril, the Commander of the Nigeria Navy Ship Victory in Calabar, says kidnapping and other crime are decreasing in the Cross River State capital and its environs.

Although Jibril did not disclose figures, he said recent statistics indicated that the rate of kidnapping had reduced.
He said this on Saturday at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar, shortly after the third quarter routine road march for all military and paramilitary formations in the state.
The 15-kilometre road march along major streets in Calabar witnessed a large turnout of officers and men from the Nigerian Army, Nigerian Navy, Nigerian Air Force, Nigeria Police Force, Department of State Services, Nigeria Immigration Service, Nigeria Prisons and Federal Road Safety Corps, among others.
Jibril, who spoke to the Media after the exercise, said the march was meant to enhance working relationships among security agencies.
He said, “This is a march organised at the instance of the defence headquarters for all security agencies. This will enhance the working relationship among the services so that when personnel find themselves working together, it will be much easier. It will also help them to keep fit. A sound body is also a sound mind.
“Although there is still crime, I do not think it is on the increase in Calabar. If you take kidnapping for instance; from the statistics I have, I that think it is decreasing.”
He also said the march would send signal to criminally-minded groups and individuals that security agencies were battle ready at any time, adding that participation in the quarterly exercise was on the increase.
“This road march is also meant to send out the word to all and sundry that we are ready and willing to tackle all forms of crime and to ensure that Cross River State is generally safe.

“We will continue to ensure the safety of lives and property,” he said.
