Okonkwo tasks IG, govs on security at Xmas

ABUJA—Prominent  Senator of the  South East, Senator Annie Okonkwo from Anambra Central, has called on the Inspector General of Police, the State Security  Service, the Governors of the zone as the chief security officers  in their states, to rise to the challenge of  the rampant kidnappings, armed robberies, and  wicked assassins that prowl  the states unimpeded.

He also tasked all the security agencies in the country to evolve strategies to restore security confidence in the South Easterners, as they prepare to travel back home for the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
Senator Okonkwo made this call in  Abuja while receiving a  delegation of  eminent Igbo sons  resident in there.

He noted that,  it had become a matter of grave national concern, that a hitherto adventurous race as the Igbo, are  deprived of the unique and  special joy the home coming for Christmas and  New Year offers,  because of  scary multiple  threats to their lives.

The Senator, however, charged the citizens of the zone in the country and in the Diaspora not to succumb to the, “blackmail  of this  condemnable  atrocities,”but urged them to sustain courage  in adversity, and return home en masse to be part of the  transformative developments  in their communities.

Senator Okonkwo   emphasised that the cultural bonding  which these festivities  offer his people  “bears direct  impetus on developmental initiatives in the region.”
