 Police alleges attack on officers at Effium, Ezza - Ebonyi NIGERIAN-POLICE-FORCE125551

The Ebonyi State Commissioner of Police, CP Aliyu Garba, has alleged that some officers stationed in some areas in Effium/Ezza community were attacked.

Recall that Effium/Ezza community located in Ohaukwu Local Government Area has witnessed unrest since January 22, 2021, and have recorded killings of hundreds of people and destruction of properties worth millions of naira.

Press gathered that security operatives including soldiers, police and other security agencies were said to have been deployed to the area to restore peace and order.

Meanwhile, Garba has alleged that its officers that were deployed to the area were attacked by warlords operating in the area.

CP Garba, in a statement signed and forwarded to Press by the command’s spokesperson, DSP Loveth Odah, said the command will not tolerate any further attacks on its officers.

The statement reads in part: “The attention of the Ebonyi State Police Command has been drawn to the unfortunate attack on the security personnel posted to Effium for peacekeeping in the crisis-torn communities precisely at Inikiri Bernard and Effium Urban on 23/08/2021.

“The attackers destroyed their camps, setting ablaze their personal effects and one motorcycle allocated to them for domestic use.”

The commissioner warned against further incursion and called on stakeholders to caution their youths.

He however lamented that the incident by suspected Effium/Ezza fighters is unwarranted as the security agencies have always maintained a high level of professionalism by remaining neutral since the inception of the crisis.

CP Garba noted that if the officers had not deployed restraints, the story would have been different.

“I warn that the command and other security agencies would not tolerate any further incursion nor attack whatsoever from any of the warring tribes. The highly disciplined officers are there to restore peace and would continue doing that to the best of their ability,” he said.
