The unknown gunmen perpetrating violence in the southeast region of the country has again struck a police station in Imo state. The hoodlums made use of petrol bombs to cause the destruction of the critical security facility. This latest tactic signifies how dangerous, cruel and heartless the criminals have become.
Security operatives are important members of the public that dedicate their lives to serve their country. There are mischievous people who share misinformation and falsehood, especially across social media platforms with regard to the operation of the security forces in some parts of the country. This is utterly disrespectful.
Before the deployment of the Special Tactical Command in the southeastern region of the country, people in the region suffered from violent behaviours of hoodlums and unknown gunmen. For instance, members of the proscribed Eastern Security Network (ESN) have imposed a Sit-At-Home order which disrupted businesses and affected the economic growth and stability of the region.
