He added that there have been many security challenges in the state in recent times and thanked the security agencies for rising to the occasion.
Speaking during his visit to Abia state to see things for himself and also assess the security situation in the state after the recent army-IPOB clash, the IGP said: “Today, I confirm the promotion of the late police officer, Cyril Nwosu, who was yet to be confirmed as a substantive as a ASP.
“We have seen a lot of changes in Abia, the crises experienced in the state in the past few days are events that are not new, where some misguided elements tried to achieve their dreams in a wrong way.
“I believe Nigeria must be stronger, every part of Nigeria has its strength, if will we try to harness this strength together, we are going to make this country far better than we are now”.
The IGP further commended the Governor Ikpeazu for his role in dousing the tension, stressing that his timely imposition of a dusk to dawn curfew went a long way to bring peace and sanity within the state and its people.
Responding, the Abia Governor reaffirmed his commitment to ensure protection of lives and property of Nigerians living in the state irrespective of where they may come from so long as they reside in the state.
Ikpeazu maintained that Abia will continue to harbor and take all Nigerians residing in the state as brothers and thanked the Inspector General of police for responding to the needs of all parts of Nigeria.
