OPERATION DELTA HAWK TO COMMENCE FULL OPERATION BEFORE DECEMBER ENDING
The Delta State Governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, has stated that the much anticipated Operation Delta Hawk (ODH) will commence full operation before December ending.
Governor Okowa stated this at a meeting with Traditional Rulers and Religious Leaders at the Unity Hall, Government House, Asaba.
According to Governor Okowa, the necessary equipment to make the outfit operational had been procured.
He explained that the process of establishing the security outfit took a while because he wanted to ensure that everything was in place, adding that the outfit would tackle kidnapping and other violent crimes, including farmers-herders clashes.
Governor Okowa stated further that the Operation Delta Hawk team will work closely with vigilante groups across the Wards and Communities and will help to tackle issues relating to kidnapping, farmers-herders clash and violent crimes.
Operation Delta Hawk is a security outfit owned by the Delta State Government to tackle the growing insecurity in the State including incessant attacks by suspected herdsmen on farmers.
