The Eleme Local Government Area Executive, Chairman Hon. Obarilomate Ollor
in his effort to rid the area of criminal activities has demolished a criminal hideout in Eleme
known as “small shanty town”.
The criminal den was demolished yesterday under the supervision of Hon. Powers Okazu, the Supervisor for Environment, who stated that the Council Chairman’s directive will be executed accordingly with effective follow ups within the neigbouring communities to ensure no quarter in the LGA will be left out in the war against criminal elements terrorising the communities.
The criminal hideout which is situated beside Aleto Bridge, along the Eleme axis of the East-West road is largely occupied by homeless cart pushers, drug addicts, scavengers/collectors of non-perishable wastes and other deviants who attack motorists and passerbys at night with dangerous weapons.
Chief Ollor who described Aleto bridge as a major gateway into Eleme local government area and the entire Rivers-East senatorial district frowned at the nefarious activities of these deviants which do not only deface the serenity of the environment but also distorts its landscape and pollute the surrounding waterbody thus, threatening the safety and security of investors.
Chief Ollor reinstated his stance in making Eleme an investors safe haven and vowed to rid the place of every security threat.
The Council Boss further warned land owners who have converted their properties to an enclave to harbour criminals within Eleme to desist forthwith or have such properties confiscated in accordance with the law.Follow us on social media
