ANAMBRA State Governor, Willie Obiano has commended the Nigerian Navy and sister agencies for their prompt response in sending crack team during the last attack on security personnel by hoodlums.

  Receiving the Chief of Naval Staff, Rear Admiral Awwal Zubairu Gambo, at the Governor’s Lodge, Onitsha, the governor expressed confidence on the capabilities of the Naval men to contain any onslaught of criminal elements in the state.

  The Chief of Naval Staff in his reaction said the Navy is determined to partner with other security agencies in restoring peace in Anambra State, while noting that the federal government under President Muhammadu Buhari had charged all Service Chiefs to work collectively to end the challenge of insecurity across the nation.

  “I am here on an operational visit to Onitsha outpost. I wouldn’t have been here, but for expediency due to the two separate incidents that happened a few weeks ago, which has led to the death of some of our men, even though the attack was not only limited to my men.

  “We are here to assure our officers that had been here since 2010, to redouble their efforts at being alert in their duty posts because of potent threats from a certain group, the Eastern Security Network – an outfit being sponsored by an outlawed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB).”

  Continuing, “we are working in collaboration with the other security agencies to ensure lasting peace, which the state has been enjoying for a long time now.

  It is in the directive of President Buhari to work with other Service Chiefs to ensure arrest of the challenge of insecurity in Nigeria and restore peace across the nation,” the Naval boss said.

  He commended Governor Obiano for the support he had extended to the security agencies, assuring him of maximum support.
