Imo Attack: President Buhari Condemns Insurgency

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the deadly insurgent attack that took place at the Police Command Headquarters and the Correctional Facility in Owerri, Imo State, on Monday.

The President called it an act of terrorism.

President Buhari praised the initial response by security guards and security forces for preventing greater loss of life and the destruction of public property.

He therefore, directs security and intelligence agencies in the state and the geo-political zone to fully mobilise and go after the terrorists, apprehend them and get them punished under the full weight of the law.

President Buhari also called for the best efforts to be made to re-arrest fleeing prison detainees, many of whom are believed to be deadly criminals.

He then appealed to members of the public to assist the law enforcement agencies with any relevant information that could lead to the apprehension of these criminals who perpetrated this despicable act.

President Buhari urged members of the public to be vigilant “as all of us have a stake in preserving our way of life from disruption by terrorists and anarchists’ while the Federal Government would use every available tool at its disposal to confront and terminate this bare-faced anarchy. ”
