The Special Assistant to Ebonyi State Governor on security in Ohaukwu Local Government Area, Ogbonna Oge Tobias has confirmed the arrest of suspected attackers, killers of a female security personnel at Ngbo Court community.

DAILY POST reports that unknown gunmen in their numbers a few days ago attacked a local security outfit at Ngbo Court community, which resulted in the murder of a female security personnel, while another sustained serious bullet injuries.

Speaking to newsmen in Abakaliki, the Special Assistant to the governor, Tobias condemned in totality the invasion/attack of the local security outfit at Ngbo Court by the gunmen, “we are not happy about that incident. I don’t know the reason why the gunmen should attack the security men.

“That attack resulted in the killings of a female security personnel and another sustained bullet injuries. The gunmen also carted away Motorcycles belonging to the outfit. As you can see, we are on the ground and sniffing, making sure that insecurity comes to an end in Ohaukwu LGA.

“We have arrested some suspects and the investigation is ongoing, and our promise to our people is that they should be calm, that we are going to see the end of it, “There has been peace and our people have been sleeping with their two eyes closed. And we are very sad about those killings.

Tobias, however, applauded the efforts of the governor in ensuring that there is peace and order in the various communities of the state.

He advocated the enactment of a law by the state House of Assembly, to empower vigilantes and other local security officers to operate with small guns to challenge the gunmen each time they invade their outfits.

“We urge the government to back our local vigilantes. You see, since the disbandment of Ebube-agu, has made local security men, through the state house of assembly, not to be using arms. And you know, these bad boys do come with sophisticated weapons.

“If the state House of Assembly can come up with a law, a situation where the local vigilantes should be empowered to use at least pump action guns. So that whenever these bad boys come to attack, they (vigilantes) will be able to engage them. By so doing, the bad boys will stop killing the security men” he stated
