While thanking security personnel for securing lives and property, the chairman promised to do all within his power, with available resources, to maintain peace and security in the area.

“It is on this note that I, Hon. Alabo Hanson A. Karika, the Chairman of Brass Local Government Area hereby launch the emblem appeal fund on behalf of myself, my family, and the Council.

“I equally use this opportunity to appeal to all to also support me, and the Nigerian Legion by generously donating to the emblem appeal fund, in doing so we are giving practical encouragement and support to the heroes living and the dependants of our fallen heroes.

“In this way, we bring to reality the words in our national anthem ‘The labours of our heroes past shall never be in vain.'”

According to him, there has been relative peace in the area due to government efforts and the synergy between the political class, security agencies as well as the traditional institution.
