Abia Govt Raises Alarm Over Plans By Hoodlums To Attack State
Abia State government has raised an alarm over plans by hoodlums to attack key locations in the state.
The State Commissioner for information, John Kalu, who made this known in a statement on Friday, urged parents to ensure and advise their children not to get involved in the activities of the hoodlums.
The statement read: “We wish to advise members of the public to be extra vigilant, ensure they are at home before the curfew hours of 8:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. as well as monitor the activities of their neighbours.
“Parents and guardians are also strongly advised to ensure that their children and wards are securely at home and not in anyway associated with the hoodlums some of whom are said to be coming from outside the state.
“Law-abiding citizens are encouraged to go about their normal duties but ensure they return home before 6:00 p.m. to avoid the rush associated with movement before the onset of curfew time.
“While we remain confident that the security architecture within the state is robust enough to prevent the planned attack and/or bring those involved in the plot swiftly to justice, the state government led by Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, will not spare any resource in ensuring the protection of law- abiding citizens.”
