Saddened by the attack on Police B Division and INEC Headquarters in Awka, the Governor of Anambra State, Chief Willie Obiano, last Monday, paid an unscheduled visit to the two scenes for an on-the-spot assessment.

Speaking immediately on arrival at the two scenes, Gov. Obiano regretted what he described as minor damages caused by the attack, saying that he was consoled by the bravery of the security personnel.

According to him, their gallantry repelled the attackers, ensured no sensitive material was torched at the INEC Office and most importantly, no personnel’s life was lost.

‘My administration will continue to provide all the support needed by the security agencies to destroy all hoodlums and continue to keep our Anambra safe,’ Obiano assured.
