Senator representing Abia South, Enyinnaya Abaribe on Wednesday condemned the current trend of attacks on Police formation across the South-East.
This is even as Abaribe, who doubles as the Senate Minority leader asked the Federal Government to be more sincere in handling the security affairs of the country.
Reacting to the recent attacks in Imo State, Abaribe said if Nigeria is to be saved from implosion, then the government must become more nationalistic.
His statement was contained in a press release by his Media Adviser, Uchenna Awom.
”Time has come for sincerity and nationalistic approach by government to address the myriad of problems besetting the country, especially insecurity and poor management of the country’s diversity.
“The time for a knee-jerk approach and fixated mindset in the investigation of criminal attacks by the security agencies has gone. It is not enough to be driven by a certain mindset, which has the tendency of foreclosing other probable leads and motives during investigations of very serious crimes like the ones we are currently experiencing.
“This time calls for deeper introspection and painstaking investigation by the relevant security agencies so that we nip these dangerous dimensions in the bud if the country must be rescued from falling off the cliff,” Senator Abaribe said.
The senator while condoling with the police and other security agencies that have come under attack in recent times, called for a thorough investigation into the rising wave of attack on police formations across the country, especially the ones that happened in Imo State.
Abacityblog.com had on Monday reported of the recent attack on Imo prison, whereby some unknown gunmen invaded the prison, burnt Police vehicle and free thousands of inmates.
Abaribe who condemned the surge of violence in the South East, particularly the attack on the Correctional Centre in Owerri, Ebonyi and Enugu states – urged the security agencies to dig in and unravel the motives behind the incessant attacks and apprehend the criminal elements to face the full weight of the law.
