There is panic in Anambra State, following unconfirmed reports that some hoodlums are again planning to attack security facilities in the state.
Sources said it was the reason the police command had blocked the road leading to Amawbia roundabout through Zik’s avenue.
Although the area was blocked during the era of “unknown gunmen”, the police command opened it in the morning to allow residents move to destinations.
However, as a result of an alarm raised on Tuesday, the area was blocked again from the Correctional Centre at Amawbia to the Police Headquarters, making it difficult for residents.
Contacted, police spokesman Ikenga Tochukwu told The Nation that there was no such thing “to the best of my knowledge.”
He added: “But we have been getting security report on how to improve security in the state and we have been working on it
“The areas blocked have been like that for some time now and the command has been meeting to reopen the places.
“We have not received any security report that some people want to attack facilities in Anambra State.
“The command has stabilised security in the state and nobody is thinking towards that direction at the moment. Discard such rumours.”
The Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) said yesterday that the pro-Biafra group had no intention to attack any facility in the state.
This was disclosed to The Nation through a statement by the Media and Publicity Secretary of the group, Emma Powerful.
According to him, “IPOB-ESN has no plan to attack any place in Anambra State or any other state in the whole of the Southeast.
“IPOB is a peaceful movement and an organisation. Anybody linking IPOB and ESN to this purported attack is not sincere to Anambra people.”
