Mbah Places N10m Bounty On Killers Of Two Police Officers

Governor Peter Mbah of Enugu state has set a N10 million bounty on the gunmen who killed two police officers and three members of the neighbourhood watch on May 7 during a crisis in Iggah village, Uzo-Uwani LGA.

Speaking to the press following a security council meeting at the government house on Saturday, May 11, Mbah stated that the state would pursue the perpetrators with every resource at its disposal.

The Enugu state governor stated that available information pointed to personnel from the Eastern Security Network (ESN), and he also advised members of the public to keep an eye out for the criminals and exhibits and report them to security services.

He said; “We just rounded off our security council meeting where we discussed, among other things, about the gruesome killing of our policemen, men of the Enugu state police command, by criminals suspected to be members of the ESN.

“Let me say this. This bestial and cold-blooded action cannot be condoned in Enugu state. I have given my directives to the security agencies that there must be no hiding place for these criminals in Enugu state. We must use everything necessary to hunt down, arrest, and bring to justice the perpetrators of this heinous crime.

“We have also placed a bounty of N10 million as a reward to anyone, who would have any useful information that will lead to the arrest of these criminals. So, I enjoin members of the public to, please, come forward, or call the police and other security agencies with any useful information that could lead to the arrest of these criminals.

“We do not have room to accommodate these people, these vagabonds, and these miscreants in our state. We are going to do everything necessary to ensure that the ultimate sacrifice made by our valiant policemen does not go in vain.”

Mbah also stated that the government would provide the necessary assistance to grieving families.

He added; “Let me just also add that those who murder our policemen or indeed any member of our security agencies may assume that they have triumphed in their evil acts. Let me inform them that we are going to come after them with everything we have.

“We are going to deploy all the necessary technology, all the necessary forces within our powers to track them, capture them and defeat them. Enugu State and indeed with the support of the security agencies, we are going to make life uncomfortable for those who do not want to live in a decent society.”

A Gentle Reminder: Every obstacle is a stepping stone, every morning; a chance to go again, and those little steps take you closer to your dream.
