Government of Anambra state has condemned the attack by unknown assailants at Awkuzu, yesterday, Monday, 26th April, 2021.
Governor Willie Obiano who stated this during a statewide broadcast at Aguleri, Anambra East Council Area, commiserated with the grieving families.
According to the Governor, the immediate curfew which was ordered immediately in Igbariam, Awkuzu, Nteje, Umunya, Umuleri and Aguleri communities, was a means of curtailing the security challenges in those areas in particular and the state at large.
Governor Obiano appealed to Ndi Anambra to be calm and go about their businesses without fear, assuring that the criminals will be brought to justice.
While appreciating Ndi Anambra for their continued support, the Governor urged those in the affected communities to comply with the curfew directive, assuring that the challenges will be surmounted very soon.
