He said that one of the suspects, Nwadiuko, is also on the wanted list of the Rivers State police command. Saying “My command is working on ascertaining the level of damages his activities did in the state before handing him over to Rivers State,” Ladodo applauded the state governor, Emeka Ihedioha, for his zealous and committed attitude towards ensuring adequate security in the state, emphasising that the introduction of the ‘Operation Iron Gate’ by the government has yielded enormous results. 

According to him, the command has made several arrests and reduced crime and criminality in the state which is as a result of the cooperation and support from the governor and state government. Ladodo also said, “Before the coming of this administration, there were a lot of security challenges ranging from political crisis and crimes but I am telling you authoritatively that Imo is now calm. Ever since Governor Emeka Ihedioha came in, I know the interest and efforts he has put in place towards securing Imo.” 

Meanwhile, in a related development, Ihedioha has said that his administration has recorded impressive achievements in tackling security challenges in the state. Ihedioha stated this while receiving in audience the General Officer Commanding, (GOC) 82 Division, Gen. Lasisi Adeboye, and his entourage who were on a familiarisation visit to Government House, Owerri. 

The state governor said that the achievements in the area of security were aided by massive support of the citizens of the state and the healthy collaboration and synergy with various security agencies in the state. He assured that his administration would continue to partner and support efforts towards cleansing the state of all forms of crimes and criminality.
