The Press statement reads thus;

The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has noted with deep concern the mass arrests of citizens around the Ndiegoro area of Aba by officers of the Nigeria Police, as a result of the alleged killing of some policemen around the area.

 

The Governor condemns in its totality, any act of hostility against any security agent anywhere in Abia State, let alone the killing of a police officer under any guise whatsoever. The peace and security we all enjoy here and which has set Abia State apart as an oasis of peace is largely attributable to the gallantry and commitment of the officers of the different security agencies in the State.

It is therefore preposterous and unacceptable that the same officers who strive day and night for our safety will receive any form of hostility from the citizens.

 

The Governor assures that government will work with the Police in the State to fish out the perpetrators of that heinous act and ensure that they face the law as appropriate.

 

Governor Ikpeazu however assures innocent citizens in the area that his administration is already in talks with all the Service Commanders of the different Security agencies in the State with a view to bringing the situation under control, and ensure that peace and tranquility returns to the area. Innocent citizens must be protected at all costs. That is the position of the Law.

 

All innocent citizens are hereby urged to remain calm and go about their businesses without fear, let nor hindrance.
