The Governor of Ebonyi State, Engr David Umahi, has imposed a dusk to dawn curfew on Effium community with immediate effect as part of efforts to restore peace to the area.
He gave the order through his Deputy, Dr Kelechi Igwe, while on assessment visit to the community. Umahi announced that the military and police have been fully deployed to man all exit and entry points, including forests and bush paths, to enforce the order.
“Therefore, miscreants and hoodlums, including mercenaries who are hiding in the forest and bushes, are advised to vacate the community immediately in their own interest as security agents have been directed to rout them out.
“Also, those who are in the habit of raising false alarm to distract and divert attention of security agents are by this announcement advised to desist from doing that as such person(s) will be tracked, arrested and prosecuted as one of those promoting the crisis,” the Governor said.
He assured the people of Effium community at home and in the Diaspora that normalcy will soon be restored to the area.
