Government says it has been alerted of plan of disgruntled to carry out violent protest in Umuahia, over the purportedly demolition of shanties at the Umuchieze Cattle market, Umunneochi .
A release signed by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy Dr. Eze Chikamnayo says it is curious and condemnable that this politically motivated disruption of public peace is being organized by the same people who harboured some criminals in shanties fo monetary benefit at the expense of the lives and property of innocent citizens.
The release notes that their decision to whip up sentiments and create choas is meant to further worsen the security situation in Umunneochi Local Government Area instead of joining hands with Government and security agencies in the onerous task of ridding the clime of the menace of criminals and kidnappers.
It therefore, warns that on no account should anyone engage in such nefarious act that threatens the prevailing atmosphere of peace in the State especially at this time.
The release also reminds, Traditional Rulers and Presidents General from Umuchieze and the entire Umunneochi Local Government Area of their responsibility to maintain peace in their domains and advise their subjects not to be misled by self-serving unscrupulous persons taking laws in to their hands.
