The Imo State Police Command has issued a warning to the hoodlums terrorizing the state, saying that the command is now out to deal ruthlessly with each and every one of them.
This is coming after an unsuccessful attack on the Imo state INEC headquarters, located along Port Harcourt road in Owerri, early on Monday morning; Thav Media reported that during the attack three of the assailants were killed.
When briefing reporters in Owerri on the attack’s outcome, Imo state Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Micheal Abattam, issued this warning.
He described the breakthrough made by the command as due to the high-level intelligence and preparation of the security agencies to repel such attacks in the state.
According to the police, “See something and say something has been our slogan. They attacked the INEC office with petrol bombs. We have also recovered some of the petrol bombs they used in the attack. Because what they did was throw petrol bombs at the INEC, offices.”
“The rate of damage like I said is minimal. We are on the ground. We can tell you what happened. The damage has to do with the effect of the dynamite. Dynamite goes down and the effect will go around. We have always repelled them. We are working assiduously to make sure that the election in Imo state will hold.”
“This is an eye-opener for whoever wants to come in and test our power. We are out for them and our intelligence is key,” police said.
