The 34 Artillery Brigade of the Nigerian Army,  Obinze  Imo State and the Nigerian Police Imo State Command  have   jointly called on the general public to discountenance the report in the the social media platforms  indicating that there was gun duel between the personnel of the Nigerian Army and the Nigerian Police in Owerri the state capital
The joint official statement describes as  malicious , false  and fabricated  and  the handwork of criminals who intend to create confusion and give an impression of  lack of synergy amongst the security agencies in the State.
According to the statement jointly signed  by  the Police  spokes man in the state  CSP Micheal  Abattam  and the Army  PRO  Captain Joseph Baba Akubo, the law enforcement and security agencies in the  State will continue to synergise and bring to book all criminals and halt their activities in the State.
The statement further said, ” no  stone will be left unturned in ensuring that law abiding citizens live in a conducive environment and carry out their daily routine without fear or intimidation by miscreants who have constituted themselves into nuisance and bent on causing instability in the state”
”  we therefore call on all law abiding citizens to ignore the illegal monday sit at home call by the proscribed and irredentist Indigenous People of Biafra IPOB and its affiliate criminal group Eastern Security Network ESN whose members have continuously used falsehood and threat on law abiding citizens”
” all  security agencies in the state will continue to discharge their Constitutional mandate and ensure lives and properties are well protected” the statement further added
