Imo State Governor Hope Uzodinma urged security agencies to apply international best practices in their rules of engagement throughout the Southeast.
Uzodinma made the call while reporting the joint security operation codenamed “Exercise Golden Dawn” and was contained in a statement released by the state government.
The Golden Dawn exercise was introduced to address the growing insecurity in the Southeast.
However, the governor urged Southeastern residents to join security officers in fighting insecurity in the region.
The statement reads: “His Excellency the distinguished Senator Hope Uzodinma has halted the joint operation of our security agencies, codenamed“ Exercise Golden Dawn ”to combat growing insecurity in the Southeast region.
“It is a well-known fact that the security of lives and property is one of the government’s obligations, while it is well established that security is everyone’s business. It is on the above premise that it becomes pertinent for all to join hands with the government for a secure society where peace reigns.
“This Golden Dawn exercise, which has the command of the State of Imo in Orlu, would be operated in all the states of the south-east to prevent the collapse of law and order ensuring the safety of all, especially with the holidays approaching. .
“It is no longer a novelty that in recent times the populations of the South-East have experienced insurrections due to numerous factors. However, with the collaboration of all, the security agencies would have arrested the situation and brought back to normal in the country.
“While halting the operation, His Excellency Governor Hope Uzodinma instructed the security agencies to apply international best practices in complying with the rules of engagement in fulfilling their duties.”
