The series of attacks launched by unknown gunmen in Imo state has raised so much tension to the extent that so many Nigerians have started reacting towards it.
Nevertheless, Imo State Police Command yesterday confirmed the killing of two traditional rulers in the Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State.
Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Mike Abattam confirmed the killings which occurred at about 2: 32 pm.
According to Vanguard Newspaper, Unknown Gunmen came invaded the Njaba Local Government Area of Imo state with their vehicles and motorcycles, stormed a meeting of traditional rulers, and shot two of them.
However, so many Nigerians are anxious about knowing the necessary things the Imo State Government should do to remedy the incident.
Here are 2 things that the Imo state government should do to remedy the Incident
- Firstly, the attack is bad and every culprit should be punished. Meanwhile, Imo State Government led by Governor Hope Uzodinma should pay a condolence visit to the families of the traditional rulers. After that, he should seek federal government assistance. The assistance will help the federal government to deploy security operatives to the affected community to protect lives and properties in the community.
Secondly, The government should endeavor to set up a committee that will look into the reason why the traditional rulers held a stakeholders meeting before the incident occurred.
Thirdly, The government should make arrangements for emergency lines so that Nigerians can use them to call the Police in case of emergency.
Lastly, I urge everyone to help the Federal Government in the fight against insecurity by reporting any suspicious movement to the Nigerian police force.
It is also important that the gunmen behind the killings do not go unpunished. This would serve as a warning to other criminal elements who may be nursing the idea of attacking traditional office holders for one reason or the other. The government and relevant authorities should do everything within their powers, to identify the culprits behind the recent killings of the two traditional rulers in Njaba, Imo state, and ensure that they are punished accordingly.
