Protesters plan to attack Anambra on Monday – Obiano


The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano says that he has security information that hoodlums plan to further attack the state on Monday.

Obiano who addressed Anambra people during a visit to him by DIG Celestine Okoye, AIG zone 13, Danmallam Mohammed and Anambra State Police Commissioner, John Abang said the state will no longer tolerate the destruction of infrastructure in the state.

He called on the youths of various communities to stand up and protect public infrastructure, adding that most of those engaging in destruction are from neighbouring states.

Part of his speech reads, “The curfew in Anambra State has been eased and now commences from 6 pm to 6 am daily. This is to enable our people to gradually get back to their normal lives after the unrests recorded in some parts of the state these past days.

“Intelligence at our disposal shows that those that have been causing trouble these past days in the state are from neighbouring states. We will not allow them to destroy our infrastructure, including police stations and other government facilities, some of which we built through self-help and community efforts.

“Enough is enough” Obiano said, and warned those who still plan to cause trouble in the state to desist or face the consequences.

The governor praised the courageous efforts of some youth groups who have organised themselves to begin the clean up of Anambra State.

“I call on residents of Anambra State to join in cleaning their neighbourhoods including drainages. The state Ministry of Environment, ASWAMA and Anambra State Clear Drainage and Forest Preservation Agency (ACDFA) have been directed to lead this effort across the state with immediate effect.”
