He also used the opportunity to charge all Divisional Police Officers, DPOs in the State to work closely with all registered and recoganised community vigilantes for optimum supervision and security ethics galvanization.
He said “This laudable and proactive gesture; championed by the Isiekenesi Progressives Assembly, IPA and other Diaspora sister bodies; is coming less than a week after the State government charged traditional rulers on Community policing to complement the State government’s efforts to combat insecurity is very commendable and worthy of emulation, therefore on behalf of the Nigeria Police Force Imo State Command, I accept to work with and supervise the activities of the Isiekenesi vigilante outfit”
