Redouble your effort and be more alert – Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo


The Chief of Naval Staff (CNS), Vice Admiral Awwal Gambo, has requested his officials and men in Anambra State to be on caution and increase their work in the war against criminal components endeavoring to shorten the current peace in the state.

Naval commander Gambo gave the mandate following the new attacks on security personnel and formations in the state during which four naval officials were killed.

Tending to newsmen yesterday not long after a meeting with Gov Willie Obiano at the Governor’s Lodge, Onitsha, the naval chief said they were working in conjunction with other security agencies to guarantee enduring peace in the state.

He said, “I’m here on operational visit to Onitsha Naval Outpost. We wouldn’t have been here but for expediency following the two separate incidents we had last week that led to the loss of some of our men and two weapons.

“Even though the attacks were not limited to our men, because I understand that the correctional service team conveying a suspect to the court was also attacked.

“I’m here to reassure our staff at the naval outpost who have been here since 2010 to redouble their effort and to be more alert based on the potent threats we’re observing from the Eastern Security Network, the security arm of IPOB.”

Earlier, Gov Obiano appreciated the CNS for the prompt response following the recent ugly developments in the state.
