“Law abiding citizens are encouraged to go about their normal duties but ensure they return home before 6pm to avoid the rush associated with movement before the onset of curfew time.

“While we remain confident that the security architecture within the state is robust enough to prevent the planned attack and/or bring those involved in the plot swiftly to justice, the state government led by Dr Okezie Ikpeazu will not spare any resource in ensuring the protection of law abiding citizens.”

The insecurity situation in the South-East has been on the rise with recent attacks on prison and Police formations in Imo and Ebonyi States.

This led to accusations and counter-accusations by the IPOB and DSS over the cause of the chaos with the former accusing the security agency of instigating the crisis in order to blame them.
