SESSPN hails arrest of criminal gang that attacked bullion van in Ebonyi State


THE South East South South Professionals of Nigeria, SESSPN, says that the security of lives and property in South East, South-South, and indeed Nigeria, stands immensely boosted by the prompt arrest of the criminal gang that attacked a bullion van in Ebonyi state.

In a statement by Collins Steve Ugwu, publicity secretary of SESSPN, commended the Nigerian Police for the prompt arrest of the criminal gang that attacked a bullion van in Ebonyi state, shortly after the news of their grave operation that claimed four lives of their personnel and ignited public apprehension.

According to Ugwu, the smart precision with which the police responded to this painful horror in criminal audacity, is indeed positive prosperity of intelligence that we wish to see as normal because it builds hope for the public, courage for their men, and deals a damaging blow to the desperately growing criminal community.

“Most importantly, the recovery of such a “warehouse-size” of weapons and ammunition must propel their investigations to decisively unearth where and how, such a huge cache as possible, and to arrest the frightening images that such is ever possible on retail at a prize. They owe it to their men who lost their lives, and those who should not be more victims to a reprehensible morale-sapping callousness under their watch.

Meanwhile, the association has also commended the Nigerian Bar Association, NBA, newly elected executives headed by Olumide Anthony Akpata. “We sincerely charge them to see the higher merit of their winning in quickly bringing to bear on their august body, a robust public advocacy redesign that compels a swift recovery of their voice and stature in the affairs of this nation, especially at this trying times’’.

“Their abiding professional faith is obligated to defend the rule of law with vigor, champion the integrity of the judiciary to dispense justice that builds, heals and binds, as they strive to restore cohesion in their ranks with despatch.

“As they settle to script much-desired new dawn, their choice of focus, strategies, and actions demand clarity of alliance with the people through rhetorics that must inspire, and actions that resonate with their disappearing fundamental rights to good governance, justice, and security,” the statement added.
