Abuja - Delta State Governor, Emmanuel Uduaghan, has called on citizens to know their neighbours as a way of tackling the current security challenges in the country.
The Governor made the call at a meeting with traditional rulers and local government council chairmen in the state.
According to him, knowing one's neighbour entailed knowing the person's source of income, place of work among others.
He observed that the security situation in the country required extra vigilance by the people, urging them to also promptly report any suspicious movement to security operatives.
“We must be vigilant, we must know your neighbour’s programme, we must ensure that our state is safe and peaceful,” the Governor said.
He noted that the immigration services were handling the removal of people who entered the state illegally.
“Identifying and deporting people who do not have genuine businesses in the state, especially foreigners who are in the state illegally is a continuous exercise being done by immigration.”
