Kalu stated that “the directive was necessitated by the security reports received from multiple sources and the need to continue to protect innocent citizens and residents of Abia”.

The statement urged se­curity agencies in the state to ensure strict enforce­ment and compliance with the directive by residents of the two cities.

It stated that only per­sons on essential services with proper identification were exempted from the curfew.

“We urge traditional rulers, men of the State Homeland Security Team and Community Vigilance Services to monitor move­ment of persons within their respective domains,” Kalu added.

He also admonished them to take necessary measures to protect peo­ple’s lives and property.

The commissioner ad­vised “law abiding citizens to go about their normal duties, outside the curfew period, without fear of mo­lestation”.

According to him, the se­curity architecture of the state is robust enough to guarantee their safety.
