by Victor Ndubuisi

Following escalating security concerns in the state, Anambra State’s executive governor, Charles Chukwuma Soludo, has issued a directive to landlords, according to report.

In an effort to rid the state of terrorism and all sorts of criminal activity, Soludo ordered all landlords to participate in a campaign he dubbed “Operation Know Your Tenant.”

He ordered landlords to keep proper records of their renters going forward, and he warned them to promptly report any tenants suspected of being involved in illegal activity or having links to any criminal organization.

In a statement issued through his Press Secretary, Mr. Christian Aburime, the governor stated that no portion of Anambra State, whether a home, bush, or forest, should be used as camps for criminals.


He warned that anyone with a gun in a camp should be considered a criminal and vowed that government and the people would work with security agencies to flush them out.

He said: “The state government shall, pursuant to its powers under the Land Use Act, revoke and acquire any land found to be harbouring these criminals, for public purpose.

“Henceforth, every community is required to provide information on any part of their land occupied by these criminals as camps. If the community fails to do so, the government will take over such land.

“Similarly, any buildings found to be harbouring kidnappers and murderers in the state will, as provided by Criminal Code (Amendment No.3) Law 2013, be forfeited to the government.

“Various ranges of bounties have been placed on criminals in the state. These are some of the sincere measures to ensure that peace returns in the state”.


Soludo stated that his government is already taking measures to end criminality in the state, adding that most of the steps already taken are yielding satisfactory results with more successes anticipated.

He assured of the readiness of the government to uproot any form of criminality in the state and encouraged the people to go about their lawful duties as their security is the number one priority of the government.

He described the May 20 killing of Mrs. Harira Jibril and her four children by unidentified assailants as “barbaric and unacceptable” and vowed to fish out the perpetrators and ensure they were dealt with according to law.
