He said the deputy governor was joined at the meeting by other top government officials, including the Senator representing Edo Central, Clifford Ordia; and the Speaker, Edo State House of Assembly, Marcus Onobun, where he called for calm among residents of Igueben Local Government Area, urged members of the public to provide useful information that will aid rescue efforts by security agencies.

He stated that Shaibu informed the people of what the government is doing to give a morale boost to troops on the ground and also review the security strategy, warning the people of the consequences of harbouring terrorists in their domain.

He said he urged monarchs within the area to sit up because if the government found out that they let out their facilities to be used by the kidnappers, such facilities will be seized.
