The Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma flagged off ‘Golden Dawn’, a military exercise aimed at tackling ipob in the state.

In the ceremony which took place at 34 Artillery Brigade Forward Operation Base at Orlu, Imo State, the Governor called on the Army to ensure that criminal elements are brought to justice.

Uzodinma also called on other security service to “continue to consolidate on the gains so far made in curbing the activities of criminals who are hell bent on causing pain and hardship on the people adding that exercises such as this will greatly destabilize and bring to a halt the activities of hoodlums, kidnappers, cultists among other criminal elements.”

‘It is a well known fact that security of lives and properties are one of the obligations of the Government while it is an established understanding that security is everyone’s business. It is on the above premise that it becomes pertinent for everyone to join hands with the Government for a secured society where peace reigns.’
