“Issues like this should not be tolerated and I call on the security agencies to swing into action and arrest the perpetrators of this dastardly act to serve as a deterrent to others; we have another important elections coming up on the 11th of March and we cannot allow thugs run amok and disenfranchise our people” , the Senator-Elect said.

He thanked Ekpenyong for coming to his assistance and urged security agencies to beef up security around the area to forestall future occurrences.
