He regretted that  Federal Government has continued to work deliberately to compromise  the security of the  State.

Governor Wike urged the people of the state to remain calm, but vigilant, adding that the evil machinations of the APC-Federal Government will not distract the state from delivering on its  constitutional responsibilities  to Rivers people.
