“What happened last month is unfortunate, but let me tell you, we have re-strategised, and we are coming out like a smoking gun” Obiano said.
“We are not going to take prisoners. The nine people who attacked Prof Soludo are in our net now. We are going to eliminate them. We will go after the others.” “We are not going to take prisoners any longer. A special squad has already been put together, and they are already working everywhere in the state.” He added.
