Arrest and punish terrorists who attacked govt facilities in Imo, Buhari orders

President Muhammadu Buhari has ordered relevant agencies of the federal government to end what he called “anarchy” in Imo State.

President Buhari, in a statement Monday by his spokesman, Garba Shehu, condemned what he regarded as the “deadly insurgent attack” that took place on the Police Command Headquarters and the Correctional Facility in Owerri, Imo State, on Monday, calling it an act of terrorism.

The President also ordered security and intelligence agencies in the state and the geo-political zone to fully mobilise and go after the terrorists, apprehend them and get them punished under the full weight of the law.

President Buhari then appealed to members of the public to assist the law enforcement agencies with any relevant information that could lead to the apprehension of these criminals who perpetrated this despicable act.

He also urged members of the public to be vigilant as all of us have a stake in preserving our way of life from disruption by terrorists and anarchists while the Federal Government will use every available tool at its disposal to confront and terminate this bare-faced anarchy.

He also called for the best efforts to be made to rearrest fleeing prison detainees, many of whom are believed to be deadly criminals.

The President hailed the initial response by security guards and security forces for preventing greater loss of life and the destruction of public property.
