Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike has taken the bull by its horn and he has done one good thing that Hope Uzodinma of Imo State should adopt in order to curtail the lingering security challenges in Imo State and its environs.
Of course it is widely known that Imo State has been the epicenter of insecurity these days. There have been a series of serious attacks on the security personnel and their institutions in the past weeks with wanton killings of police officers. Specifically, Owerri, the state capital of Imo has been hot and a no-go for travellers.
Not only that Hope Uzodinma himself is a victim of the attacks because over the last weekend, his home and other properties were set ablaze by some gunmen. In the process at least two security personnel lost their lives. Likewise, Rivers State has had some taste in the crisis. Hence, Wike took some bold step.
The Rivers State Governor and his Government have decisively decided to impose a curfew in all the local government areas of the state. Rivers has 23 local councils and the said curfew cuts across all the areas. It is aimed at nipping the crisis in the bud.
After the weekly State Executive Council meeting, it was resolved that a curfew would be imposed starting from 10pm to 6am. That means there would be no vehicular or human movement Within that period of time.
Hope Uzodinma should apply this method as well. So far, most of the attacks are carried out at nights. It is possible to arrest the gunmen when there is curfew because every suspicious move would be challenged immediately. In a nutshell, Mr. Hope Uzodinma should use the strategy and impose a curfew on Imo State.
