Police send strong message to troublemakers ahead of Buhari's visit to Imo
Meanwhile, the police had warned troublemakers to stay away from Imo or risk the wrath of security operatives.
The spokesman of the state's police command, Mike Abattam, issued the strong warning on Wednesday, September 8.
Legit.ng noted that that Abattam's warning follows the purported sit-at-home order issued by the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) ahead of the president’s visit.
The police, however, warned that its operatives and those of other sister agencies would be on the ground to deal with mischief-makers during and after the president’s visit.
“The security arrangements are perfect; the arrangements are maximum. As usual, we prepared to secure lives and property of the people of the state.
"We have informed troublemakers to vacate the state because we will deal ruthlessly with anybody who disturbs the peace of the state tomorrow (today) and going forward.”
