By John Imade (AGENDAWATCHDOG ) – Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State has called on traditional rulers in the state to call their subjects involved in criminal acts to order as he was putting in place a solid security strategy to manage security in the state.
The governor gave the charge on Thursday during the inauguration of a security council at the grassroots level to proffer solutions to the state’s security challenges, calling on traditional rulers to help in the fight against insecurity, urging them to fish out criminals in their domains.
“I had advised that traditional rulers should warn these boys,” the governor added. “You should warn them because I am bringing a security strategy, known and unknown, to manage the security in Imo State.”
Governor Uzodinma told the security council to go beyond organising vigilante groups in the state to gathering intelligence.
“This council must now go home and get us the names of every criminal in their communities,” he said. “You must collect intelligence for us and security agencies to work.”
