The Abia State Government says it has uncovered plots by yet to be identified hoodlums to attack some key locations within the state soon.
This was revealed in a press statement by the State Commissioner of Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu and made available to DAILY POST on Friday.
The Government also disclosed that it has fully mobilized security agencies in the state and placed them on high alert to thwart the planned attack and bring those concerned to justice swiftly.
The State Government advised members of the public to be extra vigilant, ensure they are at home before the curfew hours of 8pm to 6am as well as monitor the activities of their neighbours.
According to the Government, “parents and guardians are also strongly advised to ensure that their children and wards are securely at home and not in any way associated with the hoodlums some of whom are said to be coming from outside the state.
“Law-abiding citizens are encouraged to go about their normal duties but ensure they return home before 6pm to avoid the rush associated with movement before the onset of curfew time.
“While we remain confident that the security architecture within the state is robust enough to prevent the planned attack and/or bring those involved in the plot swiftly to justice, the State Government led by Dr Okezie Ikpeazu will not spare any resource in ensuring the protection of law-abiding citizens”.
