To end militancy in oil-producing local government areas, the Imo State Government has said it will host a security summit in the last week of October.

Walter Duru, who is the media aide to the Deputy Governor, Gerald Irona, told our correspondent on Sunday his principal disclosed the plan when the Old Boys Association of Priscilla Memorial Grammar School, Oguta visited him.

He said, “A security summit aimed at reviewing the security architecture of the two oil-producing local government areas of Ohaji/Egbema and Oguta of Imo State is underway.

 

“Deputy Governor of Imo State, Gerald Irona, disclosed this while receiving a delegation of the Old Boys Association of Priscilla Memorial Grammar School, Oguta, who paid him a courtesy visit at his Oguta residence.

“The deputy governor said the summit, scheduled to hold in the last week of October is targeted at ensuring that the area is crime-free.”

He quoted the deputy governor as saying “Before the end of the month of October, we will have a Security Summit in Ohaji/Egbema/Oguta Local Government Areas of the state. We have tried to clean up Oguta axis, but considering the peculiarities of the two local government areas, there is need for critical stakeholders to sit down to discuss issues around security in the area.
