APRIL 15, 2016

By Ugochukwu Alaribe ABA—The increasing state of insecurity in Aba, Abia State, took a new dimension on Wednesday night when Governor Okezie Ikpeazu’s convoy was attacked in an encounter with armed robbers, who were robbing commuters along Aba-Owerri Road. This is even as a yet-to-be identified victim was kidnapped at Immaculate Junction, while another is being feared dead after he was hit by stray bullet.

Vanguard gathered that the incident took place near Immaculate Junction along the ever busy Aba-Owerri Road, while the governor was coming back to Aba from Umuahia at 8p.m. Though no life was lost, sources said that the security details attached to the governor fired sporadic shots, which scared the robbers away.

Sources told Vanguard that the gunmen were robbing a suspected Lagos bound bus, when a pilot security van without siren and amber light approached the area. On sighting the security vehicle, the gunmen were said to have opened fire without knowing that it was the governor’s convoy.

According to a security operative in the city, who pleaded anonymity, “the robbers did not know that it was the governor. They thought that it could be the Army or police, but when they discovered it was the governor’s convoy with its full complement of security details, they took to their heels. “I do not think it was the governor that the hoodlums wanted to attack.

It is just that the governor’s convoy that was returning from work without the usual siren and the revolving amber light, ran into them.” Contacted, spokesman of Abia State Police Command, DSP Ezekiel Onyeke, confirmed the incident, but debunked reports that the gunmen attacked the governor’s convoy. Onyeke added that he was yet to be fully briefed by the Chief Security Officer to the governor over the incident.

Our leaders don't take the security of lives and properties serious. This is what the people face almost everyday.

when they are caught, it's either they come from Anambra, Imo, Enugu, Ebonyi or Ohafia axis and operating in Aba to damage the reputation of Aba people.Early this year, a kidnapping gang was caught, their information indicated that they came from Ebonyi, Imo and Anambra.Last week, the king pin of a kidnapping group was caught in his base in Ohafia but he specializes in kidnapping Aba residents

I am an Ikpeazu supporters but the truth is that the level of insecurity in the state is taking a serious dimension lately. Ikpeazu should sit up and do something fast before the situation erases his modest developmental gains so far. Abia state security is going to the dogs!

The Governor was not attacked. His convoy met a rubbery operation on the road and his security detail had to engage the rubbers in gun battle and the rubbers fled. Nobody was killed and the attack was not targeted at the Governor.

Honestly, this is delightful news. Let them feel the heat, if they fail to provide security for their state, they are at risk too.

I am not suprised though, Abia state is one of the most insecure state in Nigeria. Kidnapping, armed robbery, cultism, money, rituals and all other criminal vices is prevalent in the state. I remember when Osisikankwu, the dreaded kidnapper was still running amok all over the state. Even Nnamdi Kanu is also from Abia.

As an Igbo girl, it is painful to note that Igboland is the most unsafe region Nigeria after the NorthEast. The growing level of insecurity in the SouthEast is worrisome. Our Governors need to do something ASAP.

Mr. Governor pls take action very quickly may be u might not be that fortunate next time. My advice is to buy more cars and give the armed securities more ammunition to combact crime as quickly as possible. When you were voted in, among the things you said to protect was lives and properties. From the foregoing it seems you cant even guarantee your safety not to talk about the Abians that live in the state. So therefore mr Governor, please call the commissioner of police in your state to order it might be worse next time. Add security of lives to your agenda if you dont have it before.

This is serious. The level of insecurity in the East is on the high side.

Assuming it was a civilian, that person na goner. I just hope he would learn from this and increase the security in his state

We Nigerians have decided to stand solidly
behind Buhari despite the proposed antics
by wailers.
Paris wasn't built in a day so its out of place
to assume the manifestation of the party's
manifesto in the twinkle of an eye.
Though superfluous stories may be cooked
up by reprobate minds to mystify
unsuspeting citizens,but we have decided
that NEVER AGAIN shall we fall prey to their
Gimmicks.

They just shot inthe air to scare the robbers away rather than go on the offensive and gun down the perps..


Now the robbers live to rob another day.
