Akwa Ibom State Government has described as untrue reports that “during the illegal invasion by the agents of the State Security Service to the guest wing of the Governor’s Lodge, two days ago, caches of ammunition and undisclosed amount of foreign currency were found”.
A statement by Ekerete Udoh, CPS to Governor Udom Emmanuel, on Saturday, said ‘the reports were nothing but a lie concocted by people who wish to form a narrative that bears no reality to what is on ground in the peaceful and serene state of Akwa Ibom”.
It added: “The illegal invasion of the Governor’s Guest Wing has already been condemned by all well-meaning Nigerians and it sad that people could throw rationality and decency to the winds by publishing such a blatant lie.
Let me state here that Governor Udom Emmanuel will not be distracted by the machinations of the opposition or its agents. His 100 days have been packed by superlative performance and the good people of Akwa Ibom State who voted for him massively last April 11, are solidly behind him”.
