Abia State Government has received intelligence reports on suspicious movements of strange persons and plots to incite the populace in Abia with the aim of destabilizing the polity.
Law enforcement agencies in the state have been placed on red alert and ordered to apprehend any person or group involved in such dastardly plot. We wish to specifically warn market leaders to be wary of suspicious movements within and around markets in the state.
Times are tough already due to the Coronavirus pandemic and we will not welcome any attempt to create scenarios that can precipitate more economic hardship on our people.
Service commanders in the state are to meet the Executive Governor, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu, for briefing this evening.
