Also stopped are all task forces operating under any guise in the suburb areas in Imo state are equally affected and banned by the government.
Similarly, the government has stopped the sale of emblems across the nooks and crannies of Imo by those who either masquerade as task forces or consultants.
Consequently, those who would want to test the will of government will have themselves to blame as plans to constitute a security outfit that will go after recalcitrant persons will soon be unveiled.
