by AnaedoOnline

To bring back the security and peace that once existed in the state, the Abia State government has vowed to search through all forests in the state and flush out all criminal elements causing unrest in the state.

Anaedoonline.ng reports that the State Governor, Mr. Okezie Ikpeazu, stated this today while speaking during an interview at the Government House, Umuahia, the state capital.

Ikpeazu noted that the exercise is necessary for others to sustain the existing peace in the state. The governor noted that the primary duty of the state’s security outfit, Ebube Agu is to ensure that there is no hideout for criminals in the state. Responding to whether Ebube Agu would be armed, the Governor said his administration would do the needful when the need arises.

Ikpeazu’s statement read: “In the first place, there is no gainsaying that the forest will be combed and searched, that is the primary duty of the Ebubeagu. Our strategy is not what I will want to share here for two reasons, One, I will want us to sit in that Roundtable and I would not want to pre-empt them until after next week we will now have a clearer picture of operational details.


“But we are going to get into the forest and flush out anybody that is not supposed to be there. Whether they are going to be armed or not? We will do the needful; we will do what we need to do. We will respond with equivalent force to the challenge we meet.

“So when the time comes, when the challenge arises, we will rise to the challenges and we will do the needful to make sure our people are protected”.
