The Abia State Government has said that it has uncovered plots by yet to be identified hoodlums to attack some key locations within the state soon.
This was revealed in a press statement released on Friday by the State Commissioner of Information, Chief John Okiyi Kalu.
According to the statement, the government has already mobilized the security agencies in the state to impede the planned attacks and also bring those concerned to justice.
The Abia government has also imposed curfew hours from 8 pm to 6 am, urging residents to follow the directive and to remain vigilant.
“Parents and guardians are also strongly advised to ensure that their children and wards are securely at home and not in any way associated with the hoodlums some of whom are said to be coming from outside the state.
“Law-abiding citizens are encouraged to go about their normal duties but ensure they return home before 6 pm 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 statement read.
