Security personnel have been deployed in Ama Awusa, a settlement dominated by northerners in Owerri, Imo State to guard against the breakdown of law and order.

The deployment was occasioned by strings of attacks on some northerners in the South-East.

Sulaiman Ibrahim Sulaiman, Senior Special Assistant to Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State on Gender and Vulnerable Persons (men), in an interview with Daily Trust on Friday said that adequate security had been provided to prevent further attacks.

Sulaiman, the Garkwa Hausa (Shield of Hausa community), said the people had been sensitised on the need to live in peace with their neighbours.

According to him, the people are not contemplating carrying out a reprisal, especially on the recent killing of seven traders as they have taken it as an act of God.

He said, “We have taken everything as the will of Allah. To Him, we come and to Him, we shall return. Some of us have been here for decades. Even our grandparents were here over 150 years ago. So we see ourselves as indigenes of the state and so there is no need to fight or create recriminations between us.”

Sulaiman urged those in the North threatening attack on Igbo interests in the North not to succumb to the will of politicians who are not happy when there is peace in the country.
