The State Government had earlier announced that it had uncovered plots by yet to be properly identified hoodlums to attack some key locations within the state.
The State Government also said security agencies in the state have been fully mobilized and placed on high alert to thwart the planned attack and bring those concerned to justice swiftly.
Recall that the attack on Police Stations and killing of security operatives have been on the increase recently in the South East of Nigeria.
Not fewer than 12 attacks have been carried out by the unknown gunmen in some of the states in the east in the last three months.
