    In an emergency State Executive Council meeting, the Akwa Ibom State Government has on Wednesday announced the ban on the use of siren by unauthorised persons in the state and directed law enforcement agents to apprehend defaulters.

    Briefing newsmen after the meeting, the State Commissioner of Information, Mr. Charles Udoh, said the move is to bring sanity and forestall the wrong usage of the sirens.

    He said the law authorised only the State Governor, his Deputy, Speaker of the state House of Assembly and fire fighting ambulances and trucks on emergencies to use sirens.

    “The council frowns at the indiscriminate use of sirens by people in the State, the law prescribes that only three people are permitted to use siren; these persons are His Excellency the Governor, Deputy Governor and the Speaker and fire fighting trucks on emergency assignments.

    “Every other person who uses siren in the state is doing so illegally and the council has also mandated the security agencies to apprehend anyone who violates this order and bring them to book. The idea is that we need to have a sane society; we need to have a society where there is law and order; we need to have a society where status is respected,” Udoh said.
