Responding on behalf of the Nigerian Army, the Coordinator Nigerian Army Aviation Major General Johnson Olawumi thanked Governor Abubakar for constantly supporting the security network in the state. He promised that the patrol motorcycles will be put to good use and all criminal elements will be flushed out of the state.
