Police refutes publications Describing Umunze as  Headquarters of ESN

By Uzo Ugwunze

Anambra State Police Command has refuted publications purporting that Umunze community at Orumba South Local Government Area, Anambra State is the current stronghold and headquarters of Eastern Security Network (ESN) and dreaded by the Nigerian police force.

According to the press release signed by the Police Public Relations Officer, Anambra State command, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga and made available to newsmen, "Attention of Anambra State Police Command has been drawn to a story making the rounds on social media claiming that Umunze is the Headquarters of ESN and that the Police regard the town as a "No-Go-Area" while sympathising with the kidnap victim who was allegedly held for four days in the area, it is important to let the public know that the claims attributed to the man is false and baseless".

"The public will recall that the Police-led Forward Operating Base in Aguata just last month smashed the insurgents Camp at Ogbunka near Umunze, rescuing three kidnapped victims including a Priest; recovering nine stolen Vehicles and three Pump Action Guns and arresting three of the criminals. So how can anyone claim the Police describe Umunze as a no-go area?

"The Divisional Police Headquarters in Umunze is functioning at full capacity and the Police continue to discharge its responsibilities to the people in the area".

'Police is however aware of insurgent activities to the south of Umunze in a neighbouring  State and collaborative effort is ongoing to root them out of the place".

"The Commissioner of Police, CP Aderemi Adeoye, wishes to assure the good people of the State that their safety remains the most important priority of the Police Command and this is permanent', it stated.
