As part of the measures  to check criminal activities in Anambra State, especially Onitsha, Gov. Peter Obi wants the army barracks at Onitsha fenced. He says it is the only army barracks that he knew that is not fenced in Nigeria.

At a meeting with the minister of defence, Prince Adetokumbo Kayode (SAN), at the Defence Headquarters, Abuja, Obi said that the barracks was one of the security challenges Anambra State had. According to him,  because of the markets around the barracks, some criminals and armed robbers, once being pursued, always run into the market.and once they do this, it becomes difficult for security agencies to access the place.

In his own remarks, Kayode commended Obi for his concern for the good of his state. He also announced that the president, Dr. Goodluck Jonathan, had approved the immediate fencing of the barracks, consequent upon his letters and representations on the issue
