Anambra Governor Chukwuma Soludo has said the attackers and killers of Senator Ifeanyi Ubah’s convoy and aides have been arrested by the security operatives.
The Nation Newspaper gathered that; Though he didn’t disclose the number arrested, he vowed that gunmen perpetrating such acts in Anambra State would not go unpunished.
He claimed that when he took office, the state’s security situation was extremely precarious, with the gunmen having established over 15 camps as bases of operations.
In Awka, Soludo gave a speech over the weekend on a radio station run by the government.
As he put it, “Light and darkness cannot coexist together, so I was tough in my commitment to find a solution.
Some of the offenders who attacked Sen. Ifeanyi Ubah have been detained, but a detailed update will be provided.
“The others who attacked military troops and vigilantes can run but they can’t hide. It’s just a matter of time. We are getting closer to catching them every day.
Anambra needs to stay secure and tranquil! If these offenders decide to cease committing crimes, we are willing to assist them. We will support and strengthen them.
Communities have a lot of duties to carry out. Any young person who becomes wealthy quickly should be questioned and looked into to find out how he did it.
“Crime won’t fully disappear in three or six months. We will prevail, but it will take time.”
There is nowhere to hide, thus these crooks’ days are numbered.
Soludo raised the alarm about the flood that was destroying Anambra by stating that 30% of the land had been eroded and the majority of the roads were breaking in half.
Seven LGAs in the state are mostly underwater. There is flooding on hundreds of thousands of houses, properties, and farms.
There are thousands of displaced individuals. From their houses, they fled to camps and family.
“Preserving lives is our top priority. We want to make sure that those living in camps are fed, have access to medications, and have solar power for lighting.”
We will continue to care for them after this flood recedes because many of them will restart their lives.
This happens every year, so we’ll be ready for it the following year. We shall provide modern speed boats to ease means of transportation for residents in the riverine areas.
Boats and canoes are no longer secured. There was a boat accident that resulted in fatalities.
We’ve also started having serious discussions with the Federal Government. We will no longer put up with Cameroon opening their dams and letting these floods to wreck havoc.
Why doesn’t Nigeria still construct dams? In the 1980s, Cameroon erected theirs, but we didn’t. To prevent flooding when Cameroon opens its dam, we must construct up to four dams, according to the governor.
