Okonkwo tasks security agencies on restoration of confidence

AWKA—Prominent  Senator of the  South East, Senator Annie Okonkwo from Anambra Central, has called on all  security agencies in the country to evolve a strategy aimed at restoring security confidence to  South Easterners, as they prepare for the yuletide  annual home return.

Senator Okonkwo, who made this call in  Abuja while receiving a  delegation of  eminent   Igbo sons  resident in  FCT, who came on  a solidarity visit, noted that,  it had become a matter for grave national concern, that a hitherto adventurous race as the Igbos, 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 and limbs.

Senator Okonkwo   who emphasised that the cultural bonding, which these festivities  offer his people  bear direct  impetus on developmental initiatives in the region, adding that  if nothing was done urgently to re-assure them of their security and safety, a  severe setback would have been afflicted on them without intent.

He called on the Inspector General of Police, the State Security  Service,  the Governors of the zone as the chief security officers  in their states, and complemented   by authorised  local vigilante groups to rise to the challenge  of  kidnappings, armed robberies, and  wicked assassins that prowl  the states unimpeded.
