Abaribe seeks probe into Imo violent attacks

IPOB's attack on Ekweremadu, warning to Igbo leaders - Kanu - Vanguard News

The Senate Minority Leader, Enyinnaya Abaribe on Wednesday, demanded a thorough investigation into the rising wave of attack on police formations across the country, especially the ones that happened recently in Imo State.

Abaribe condemned the frightening surge of violence in the South-East, particularly the attack on the Correctional Centre in Owerri, Ebonyi and Enugu states.

A statement by his media aide, Uche Awom, in Abuja, urged the security agencies to unravel the motives behind the incessant attacks and apprehend the criminal elements to face the full weight of the law.

The Minority Leader said the attack on security agencies, particularly on the police, which was the first line of civil defence, was unacceptable and stands condemned.

Abaribe further expressed worry that the country is fast sliding into total anarchy and cautioned that time has come when the federal government should rise up and address the poor security situation in the country.

“The time for knee jerk approach and fixated mindset in investigation of criminal attacks by the security agencies has gone. It is not enough to be driven by a certain mindset, which has the tendency of foreclosing other probable leads and motives during investigations of very serious crimes like the ones we are currently experiencing.

“This time calls for deeper introspection and painstaking investigation by the relevant security agencies so that we nip these dangerous dimension in the bud if the country must be rescued from falling off the cliff,” Abaribe said.
