“I want to urge politicians and all Deltans to be calm and patient with the police presently investigating the matter to come up with their findings.

“We should also conduct ourselves in a manner that will not heat up the polity especially now that political activities are on the increase,” the statement quoted the governor as saying.

It also assured residents in the state on safety of lives and property, stating that the state government was on top of the security situation.
