The Abia State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu, has charged Umunneochi people to stamp out strange elements who have no business in their forests and have become security threats to the people.

The governor stated this while inaugurating a Special Security Committee for Umunneochi Local Government Area at the Government House, Umuahia, on Thursday.

Ikpeazu directed the committee to take over all ungoverned spaces in Umunneochi and set up systems that would lead to the apprehension of all elements who had become a nuisance to the people.

He assured that the state government will provide all that is needed to make their job successful and announced immediate provision of a patrol vehicle and motorcycles to serve as enablers to their assignment.

Ikpeazu said he will support the Committee until the story of security changes for the better in the area and further charged the Committee to take decisive action to flush out all criminals in the area as the land belongs to the people of Umunneochi.
