The level of insecurity in the South-Eastern part of the country is becoming something else. This year alone, many prominent men in the region have been attacked by unknown gunmen.

In this article, we'll be looking at two times the houses of prominent men in the South-East were burnt down this year, and what the government should do.

1. The house Chief O.K Ugba

On 1st June 2021, the house of Chief O.K Ugba in his hometown, Amangu Ohafia, Abia State, was burnt down by some unknown gunmen believed to be IPOB members.

According to reports from several sources, the building was razed down by suspected ESN members over claims that the solar street lights installed in the community have cameras that monitor their activities.

The government should consider deploying more soldiers to the South-Eastern part of the country and empowering local vigilante groups in the region against criminals responsible for all the attacks. The activities of criminals in the region seem to be rising every day, empowering local vigilante groups will go a long way in stopping these criminals from attacking people.

Apart from burning the houses of prominent men, many people in the region have been killed by unknown gunmen and it is something that needs the iron fist of the government. The region might turn into a place of mass destruction if nothing is done now.
