"Just yesterday (Monday) in Logo local government, mobile policemen that were deployed to Logo to keep vigil to protect the people and the land; these militia came, exchanged fire with them, caught two of them and slaughtered them like goats - mobile policemen!" he said.
"The Force will not hesitate to deal decisively with trouble maker (s), any group (s) or individual for conduct likely to instigate the escalation of the crisis.
And of course threat and no action has resulted in this killing and I think that Mr. President will also do the needful to ensure something is done".
"The full weight of the law will be applied to anyone arrested for being responsible for the mayhem in the affected areas in the state", Moshood said. "Who is now safe?", Ortom asked. The security men should apprehend perpetrators and prosecute them.
