Mr. Christian Ikechuku when quizzed if they would choose to leave the town or otherwise, he explained that the shops of their members remained closed since Friday as they await for the advice of the Municipal and Regional Security Council.
“That’s the reason why we’re still at home. Since Friday till now, we’re still at home trying to put things in place. Even today, we had a meeting with our Regional Minister and the DCE (MCE) and after the meeting they also promised that they are going to invite all the security heads for them to look into the matter and after that they’ll now call us back. So we’ll now sit back and wait for them to call us. Until after they call us, whatever they tell us, we’ll now take it from there. That’s when we’ll know whether we can stay or not. But for now, we can’t say anything.”
Mr. Ikechukwu Commended the Police for Giving them protection during the period of attacks.
