“It’s unfortunate that security is still an all low.

“People now celebrate new yam festival, we hosted the Cardinal and the Bishops in Nigeria, the fashion expo, and so on and so forth. And some weeks back the international community, Ambassadors and other development partners were here in Anambra and were taken round the State. These things won’t disappear over night. But we are putting in our best to make Anambra safe and secure.

Referring to the criminals, Governor Soludo said, “They are calling them unknown gun men. No, they are plain criminals who hide under the cloak of agitation. Because Anambra happen to be home to many rich men, the criminality has turned out to be a lucrative criminality and promoting idolatry. We have been catching quite a number of them and 100 percent of those we caught are Igbos.

According to the Governor; “When we started, we found out that many of the criminals were not from Anambra, but when we continued, we discovered that a number of them that have been initiated and indoctrinated, are from Anambra. Thank God that our people are now coming up. That’s how we are picking the criminals.

The Governor who sounded a note of warning that anybody in the bush or camp is considered a criminal, reiterated that these criminals come from homes, and they have parents and relations.
