Obi asked security services to take quick measures to address the country’s growing insecurity and crime in his tweet. He also lauded the efforts of the South Eastern governors in combatting criminal activity in the region, and he advocated for more strategic and intelligence-driven ways to ease citizens’ suffering.

Obi also emphasized the troubling scenario in Plateau State’s Mangu Local Government Area, where several lives and assets had been lost with little pushback from security forces.

According to Obi, the interruption of commercial and social activities in the South East region as a result of the sit-at-home directives is a criminal act that necessitates immediate action and assistance from security authorities and the general people.
