Governors of south-south states have announced their plan to set up to a regional security outfit.
This announcement was made by the governors in Asaba, Delta State, on Thursday, while discussing ways to curb insecurity across the oil-rich region.
The governors also resolved to revive the Bayelsa, Rivers, Akwa Ibom, Cross Rivers, Edo and Delta (BRACED) commission, “which will handle the formation of the local security outfit”.
This decision follows the establishment of Amotekun security outfit in the south-west region amid insecurity and terrorism in the country.
