The Assistant Inspector-General of Police in charge of Zone 9, AIG Echeng Echeng has ordered police personnel in Imo state to neutralize any elements enforcing the sit at home directive. Echeng gave the order during a visit to Imo state police command in Owerri. The AIG said the police would apply a stringent approach to fight insurgency, terrorism and other criminal activities within the zone.
According to his words; “I will continuously ensure that we take the fight to those who do not want peace. There is nothing anybody can do without security. The economy of the state will not be affected by a group of miscreants who think they have control,” he stated.
Echeng who advised Imo residents and residents in all the south eastern states to go about their normal businesses, reiterated the readiness of his men to sustain peace and provide adequate security for the people of Imo, Abia, Anambra, Enugu and Ebonyi states respectively.
According to his words; “We will continue to partner with other security agencies in the state to ensure that those planning to enforce the sit at home order are surely dealt with. Imo people and other people in the southeastern Nigeria deserve better than what they are getting now. They deserve peace, adequate security, economic growth and stability; and this we assure them,” Echeng stated.
