Akwa Ibom State which was confidently referred to as a very peaceful state by the executive governor of the State His Excellency Udom Emmanuel has over the months become a war zone .

In recent weeks , Essien Udim, Ikot Ekpene and Obot Akara Local Government Area has been in the news for the wrong reasons ,which include gruesome killings of police officers, setting ablaze of police vehicles , stations and houses.

The unruly act which is been pepetrieted by some unscrupulous elements in the aforementioned Local Gvernment Areas has led to the lost of lives of some police officers ,Soldiers and civilians who are victim of circumstances. 

The perpetrators have so far succeeded in gunning down an Officer of the Nigerian Police on night duty at the Police Station , Nto Nsek , two police officers killed and burnt with their vehicles set ablaze at ikpe Annang junction ,officers of the Nigerian custom and vehicle set ablaze at Nsasak-Afaha , Essien Udim police station at NTO NSEK and vehicle set ablaze ,Soldiers killed at Ikot Umoesssien Army Base , Officers of the Nigerian police killed at NTO NSEK and vehicle set ablaze ,an Assistant Superintendent of Police killed and burnt inside his house at Ikot Afang ,vehicle and motorcycle set ablaze. Ikot Akpan Village Head's house set ablaze ,More than 15 soldiers and police officers killed at Uwa Junction ,3 Army Hilux van set ablaze too and random shooting and killing especially motorists and pregnant women along Ikot Ekpene Aba Road .

However,despite the commissioner of police Akwa Ibom State Andrew Amiengheme condemning the killing of the Assistant Superintendent of police Benedict Okoh Ajide and the Akwa Ibom State ban on the use of motorcycle and tricycles Aka Keke Napep from 6pm to 7am , the attacks has not stopped but rather increased drastically. 

The question on the lips every Akwa ibomite is , what is the chief security of the state doing about all this killings and what is the position of the Governor of the state?

It is unfortunate that the police up till date has claimed that the reason for the attacks are unknown and has continued to promise the indegenes of the State that all measures are been put I place to curb the situation on ground has urged the citizens to aid them in the investigation process by providing any valuable information. 

Moreso this killing is a clear evidence that the is need for a rebranding of the Akwa Ibom State Security Unit. This is because they have shown a great level of incompetence since the beginning of this crisis .They have not been able to curtail the situation in the state neither have they been able to bring the culprits to book which has left everyone fuming and also living in fear.

Akwa Ibom State Security Unit need to do more

The government can't afford to remain inept and rudderless in this matter as it concern lives and properties which they swore to protect.

The Governor Udom led administration must not be political in handling a matter as delicate as this as it has become so bloody and has seen the lives of people wasted for no good reasons.

It has become crystal clear that if nothing is done fast to arrest the situation, more lives will be lost and that will drag the good name of Akwa Ibom State to the mud. The government of the state must act fast.
