Background

In a recent meeting in Awka in February, during a meeting with the state’s traditional rulers and president-generals of communities, Governor, Prof. Chukwuma Soludo, alleged that some of the state vigilante operatives work hand-in-hand with criminals in the communities, hence sabotaging the government’s efforts to tackle insecurity.

Soludo accused the personnel of the state-based security outfit of entering into a covenant with some criminal elements, adding that the situation has made the criminals infiltrate the ranks of the security outfit.

Soludo said the development was why he had yet to sign the monthly payments of the vigilante operativest. He vowed to hold the traditional rulers and presidents-general accountable if the vigilante operatives in their communities misbehave. 

However, with the latest development, it appears community vigilante service is about to get a boost.
