The Anambra State Commissioner for Homeland Affairs, Chief Chikodi Anarah, has said that the state government is gradually winning the war against gunmen and other criminal activities distorting the peace of the state.
He said the government will not rest in the fight until peace is fully restored in the eight most affected local government areas of the state.
The commissioner said this while defending the 2022 budget estimate of the ministry before the Anambra State House of Assembly committee on police affairs and Security Matters, at the House of Assembly complex in Awka.
In his defence, Anarah while praising the gallant commitment and achievement of security agencies in the state said that Gov. Soludo has also restructured, reinvigorated and equipped the Anambra Vigilante Group for the challenges of the moment.
He then called on residents not to panic but rather report any suspicious persons around their abodes, churches and offices to any security outfit close to them for prompt action.
He also appealed to traditional rulers not to abode strangers with questionable characters in their domain.
