Governor Wike wondered why the security agencies cannot replicate the professionalism they displayed in Osun State, in Rivers State.

“I wonder if these security agencies will be committed to Rivers State, the way they were  in Osun State.  Nobody has come out in Osun State to accuse security agencies of being openly involved. Why can’t they do that in Rivers State “, Governor Wike said.
