'Operation Delta Hawk': Delta To Launch Security Outfit To Checkmate Herdsmen Crisis



Following the rising cases of herders-farmers clashes, kidnapping and other crimes, the  Delta State Government has disclosed plans to begin a security outfit to tackle insecurity in the state.

The Secretary to the State Government SSG, Mr Chiedu Ebie revealed that the proposed security outfit would be named “Operation Delta Hawk”. 

He added that, the State Governor, Ifeanyi Okowa was worried about cases of death and injuries resulting from the clashes and therefore, resolved to set up a security outfit to manage security challenges in the state.

The SSG said,

“This matter has been under the focus of the State Government since the inception of this administration and had informed the appointments and governance structure that has been created since then.”

“At the same time, we have been very active in the use of intelligence and a recent outcome of this application is the demolition and relocation of the Abraka Market which had turned into a meeting point and haven for criminally-minded persons.”

“We have also been quite active in engaging with herders and their host communities to ensure mutual trust and peaceful co-existence through the offices of some of the political appointees."
