In the wake of increasing insecurity in the South East Nigeria, and the recent Kidnap of a student of Abia State University (ABSU), the state Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has ordered the beefing up of security around the University’s vicinity and in other parts of the state.
The action, according to the governor, was meant to reinforce the security of lives and property in the state and stem the spate of kidnappings happening in the state.
Governor Ikpeazu disclosed this recently during while commenting on the release of the recently abducted student of Abia State University, Uturu (ABSU), along the Okigwe-Uturu Road.
It will be recalled that he student was abducted by hoodlums, along with other passengers in a Sienna Van between 7.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m. on their way to Uturu.
In his comment via his official Twitter handle@GovernorIkpeazu, the governor expressed joy over the release of the student, vowing that those involved in the student’s kidnap would not be brought to justice.
“I spoke with her (the student) and her mother minutes ago and want to thank God, our security agents and the management of ABSU for a job well done.
“Our administration has since taken measures to strengthen the security around the area where the incident happened and even beyond to ensure the security of lives and property.
“Security of lives and property remains my number one assignment as governor and it is one duty I will never take lightly,’’ Ikpeazu tweeted.
