Anambra safe, secured with improved technology, others throughout Christmas -Soludo


By Okechukwu Onuegbu

Anambra State governor, Professor Chukwuma Soludo, Monday, assured residents, returnees and intending visitors that the State would remain safe and secured with technological devices and other measures throughout the Yuletide.

Soludo, who stated this in a statement signed by his Press Secretary, Mr Christian Aburime, also dismissed a viral message circulating in the state, which warned  Christmas returnees to avoid certain roads as they have been taken over by criminals.

According to the governor, during the yuletide, security would also mount checkpoints and patrols, using a combined team of local vigilantes and others, technology and putting in place hitch-free call mechanisms, to ensure people report criminals timely enough for action.

“The state is leveraging technology to make it possible for people to make distress calls and share messages, videos and otherwise, of incidents that will enhance security response and services. The toll free 112 call centre line is available 24/7 as well as the Police phone numbers. Well-meaning citizens should make calls to the lines for security or related matters," he added.

On the viral message, statement said: “The Governor remains focused on making Anambra State the safest state in Nigeria and no misleading information or mischievous write ups will stop him from achieving this. In line with this resolve, the Governor urges the good people of Anambra, residents and visitors to ignore any unfounded alarm meant to infuse fear in them or discourage them from visiting the state. These are idle engagements which the government has all that it takes to deal with.”
