Aduba, a former Commissioner of Police said if Miyetti Allah went ahead to establish vigilante operation in the state and by extension, in any part of Southeast zone, the committee would institute legal action to halt them. The special assistant, who spoke on Monday in Onitsha,  said they would not resort to violence or fire for fire approach but should use constitutional means to halt the trend.

His words, “Miyetti Allah should go to their own home to set up vigilante because we can’t allow that here in Igbo land. They can also go to other African countries to establish their colony.

He further explained that his committee has started training and re-training of vigilante operatives in the state, stressing that various communities in the state should dispatch volunteers to be sponsored by them.
