Soludo Vows To End Insecurity In Anambra

The Anambra State Governor, Charles Soludo, has vowed that the insecurity situation in the state will soon be a thing of the past.

The governor, during a special church service as part of activities to mark this year’s Independence anniversary celebration at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Awka on Sunday, stated that he is working hard to address the issue.

Soludo, noted that the state government, as part of committed to ensuring security, has deployed security personnel to strategic locations across the state.

He added that greater efforts are being made to improve intelligence gathering and sharing.

“My government is committed to ensuring the safety and security of all. We are working hard to address the security challenges in the state, and we are confident that we will overcome them soon,” he said.

The governor also cautioned Nigerians to be wary of purveyors of fake news.

Soludo said some people have been taking advantage of the current security situation in Nigeria to spread fake news and misinformation.

Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police in Ogun State, Abiodun Alamutu, has declared that individuals engaging in cult killings in Sagamu are neither students nor members of a political party.

This is coming a few days after the Department of State Services (DSS) arrested a member of the Ogun State House of Assembly from Sagamu 1 Constituency, Damilare Bello, in connection with the cult killings that claimed many lives in Sagamu last weekend.

The ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) and the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) have since been trading blame over who is responsible for the recurring cult clashes in Sagamu.

The Commissioner of Police spoke during a radio programme on OGBC 2, Abeokuta, on Sunday.

He said, “We have devised various ways to stem the tide. Unfortunately, it re-erupted last week in Sagamu. I want to admit that this set of vicious and depraved persons are neither students nor partisans.”

He explained that normalcy has been restored in Sagamu, adding, “We want to put in a structure that would keep them (cultists) at bay for a reasonable number of years and possibly deter other youths from joining their fold.”

Alamutu disclosed that the command is working with the judiciary to ensure cases of cultism are dealt with expeditiously because it has become a serious challenge to society.
