By Marlikberry,

Abia State Governor Okezie Ikpeazu has urged heads of security agencies to arrest killer-herdsmen in the state.

A statement by Commissioner for Information, John Okiyi-Kalu, condemned the recent destruction of farmlands by cows grazing openly in violation of extant laws.

It also condemned the activities of criminal herdsmen suspected to have masterminded the recent kidnap around Abia North.

According to the statement, Ikpeazu has directed security agents to bring to justice all those involved in the criminal activities.

It reads: “Government has activated all relevant components of the state security architecture to ensure the safety of lives and property of citizens, residents and visitors.

We, therefore, call on the people to go about their legitimate businesses without fear as the government is on top of the situation and will spare nothing in protecting them… All we want is peace in our land my people
