From Princely Onyenwe
Arondizuogu area in Imo State was heated by the intelligent surveillance that led to the attack on the camp of unknown Hoodlums.
Gun men have continously launched attack at various locations and at various intervals in Imo state and its neighbouring states.
Few hours ago, security Forces in the state through a co-ordinated intelligence report bursted the camp of the unknown gunmen at Akokwa, Arondizuogu after a long gun duel which resulted to the death of some of the criminals and others arrested.
These criminal elements have been known to be behind several attacks in the state such as the killing of police men in Mbaise, Aba Branch in Ehime Mbano, burning down of police stations, attack and attempted kidnapping of former Governor Ikedi Ohakim, abduction of Miss. P.P. Johnson, a female soldier in Okigwe and recently the attack in Akokwa that left many dead.
It is obvious that these daredevil gunmen have been perpetuating their evil plans unabated until yesterday when their camp was bursted by security agencies. This is another assurance that our security operatives are leaving no stone unturned in the fight against banditry and other related activities.
While it has become obvious that the activities of these non state actors are politically motivated, aimed at destabilizing Orlu zone and some parts of the state as well as to frustrate the efforts of the state government in security management, the administration of Governor Hope Uzodinma is committed through security agencies in the state to wipe them out and restore peace to the areas affected.
This recent triumph by our security agencies is one out of many operations going on in some of these localities especially in some of their hideouts and with the concerted efforts of the state government and locals, these criminals will continue to meet their waterloo as insecurity will be a thing of the past.
The governor in his quest to bringing a lasting solution to this menace in the state and in the entire South East has requested from the President, an advanced technology in the fight against insecurity which has been graciously approved by President Muhammadu Buhari and will help to fight terrorism and banditry to an end.
Ndi Imo should brace up with hope that the end is near, the threats to our peace and livelihood will soon become a thing of the past and ensure reports and intelligence are promptly communicated to our security agencies as it will go a long way in the fight against these faceless criminals and support the efforts of the state government in ensuring that we have a peaceful and secured Imo state that we can be proud of anytime.
However, this fast response by the joint security intelligence patrol has helped to relieve the people of the area as demonstrated by their reaction as reported by 9News Nigeria (Owerri)
Recall that Governor Uzodinma through a broadcaster late last year, made the promise to shut down criminal activities in the state.
And by this act it is the prayer of every Imolite for the government to continue in this tempo to deal with Hoodlums cum “unknown” Gun men to save Imo State.
