A group, Igbos for a Progressive Nigeria (IPAN) has disclosed its plans to hold a protest against the incessant attacks on security personnel in the South East, warning hoodlums to flee the region.
Leader of the group, Comrade Lawrence Onuzulike dropped the hint when he led a delegation on a courtesy visit to the Anambra State Police Commissioner, Monday Bala Kuryas in his office in Awka.
Onuzulike who noted that security of lives and property had remained the main vision of the group, regretted the several attacks on uniform men who were diligently discharging their duties.
He said, “The society cannot operate without law and order and only police and other security agencies provide this order. Now they are not on the roads, hence the insecurity and lawlessness.
“We cannot fold our hands and watch our security men that give us protection die like fowls. We say enough is enough. We must do something. We urge community leaders to rise against this and assist the government in securing the state.
“IPAN believes in Nigeria. We believe in the present administration of President Buhari. We want to move Nigeria forward.”
While commending the Commissioner of Police for his tireless efforts in making sure Anambra remained the safest state, Onuzulike urged Governor Willie Obiano not to relent in providing security to the Police and other security agencies’ facilities.
Responding, CP Kuryas assured Police partnership with the group to further strengthen the security architecture in the state.
