Chief Aduba also noted that AVG is on red alert in the one hundred and eighty one communities in the state since the lockdown, participating in round the clock patrol and fully collaborating with the Task Force on COVID 19, consisting of the Nigeria Police and Army among others.
He further stated that the traditional ruler of Ufuma, Igwe Chika Uchime and the President General of the community, Sir Basil Onwunze, have categorically confirmed that cattle rearers did not invade their community, and have equally vehemently distanced themselves and the entire community from the false alarm.
The Chairman of Anambra State Vigilante Supervisory Committee also expressed gratitude to Governor Willie Obiano for footing the bills of some operatives of his outfit who recently underwent strategic
forensic and special security training in Abuja.
He equally assured Ndi Anambra of effective service delivery within the state as well as beckon on the need for citizens to give them first hand information about suspicious movements and warned rumour mongers and mischief makers against causing unnecessary tension in the state when all efforts should be geared towards combating COVID 19 pandemic disease in the state.
