Vigilantes have been deployed to beef up security in all communities within Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
The Chairman of Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State, Adode Tete, has ordered for the deployment of the vigilantes.
This development was carried out to savage the negative impact of the #EndSARS protest as policemen continue to shun the directive to return to their duty posts.
According to sources,Tete deployed the vigilantes strategically in all the towns and clans of the area following a security meeting he held with the traditional rulers and president-generals of the various kingdoms in the locality.
Other key roles played by the president-generals of the seven kingdoms in the LGA are: the provision of patrol vehicles and other necessary logistics in addition to the council’s provisions “for the effective operations of the local vigilantes.”
Meanwhile, the local government council has resolved to grant the vigilantes periodic seminars and training, it was further gathered.
