“The senator in his response assured them that there are ongoing efforts behind the scene at finding a political solution to the problem and also promised to relay their message to the federal government with regards to the need to treat the issue as vital.

“The senator at this juncture pleaded that the federal government finds a political solution to this. It is our firm belief that if this is done, the present insecurity in Anambra state will come to an abrupt end as the politically sponsored bandits killing people under this guise will have no further excuse at their disposal.”
