The Abia State Government says it has uncovered plots by those it termed “desperate politicians”, to abduct judicial officers in the state.
The State Governor, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu, who made the allegation in a terse statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Enyinnaya Appolos on Sunday, warned those behind the unholy plot to desist from it for their own good.
He said, “We call on security agencies in the state to increase surveillance and protection services around all the judicial officers in the state. We wish to warn those involved in this plot to desist from their nefarious activities as the government will not hesitate to apply the full weight of the law against them.
“We also call on Abians to be vigilant and report any suspicious movement around them to the security”.
