The gov­ernment of Anambra State has expressed dismay over at a viral message insinuating insecurity in some parts of the state, assuring return­ees for Christmas to the state of safety.

In a statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Christian Aburime, the Governor Solduo-led government said its ‘atten­tion has been drawn to a viral message by an anon­ymous writer, insinuating insecurity in some parts of the state during the yule­tide period.

‘In the message, the author listed some roads and junctions which he/ she warned returnees and visitors to the state to avoid for fear of attacks by gun­men’.

The government de­scribed the information as mischievous, misleading, and untrue.

It said the governor, Prof. Chukwuma Charles Soludo, is assuring of ade­quate security in the state during the yuletide and beyond.

According to the state­ment, some of the mea­sures already in place to make Anambra a hot zone for criminal elements include the use of check­points, patrol and response teams to cover various routes in the state, using a combined team of Anam­bra State Vigilante and se­curity forces from conven­tional security agencies.

Also, it said the state is also leveraging technology to make it possible for peo­ple to make distress calls and share messages, videos and otherwise of incidents that will enhance security response and services.

It said toll-free 112 call centre line is available 24/7 as well as the police phone numbers – 07039194332 and 08039334002 , while also providing Anambra State government emergency call lines.
