Enugu State governor, Ifenanyi Ugwuanyi has appealed to police officers in the state to return to their duty posts.
Ugwuanyi made the appeal when he visited the command to assess the level of destruction of lives and property during the EndSARS protests hijacked by hoodlums.
In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant, Mr Louis Amoke, the governor pleaded with the police officers to return to their duty post.
“In our sensitivity to the mood and pains of the society under our watch, the state government has set up an Administrative Panel of Inquiry to determine the loss of lives and other damages.
“We have also taken time to inspect the various degrees and nature of damage arising from the hijacked protests.
“The self-evident low morale of the Police Force occasioned by the fallout of the #EndSARS protests has, in our judgment, increased the likelihood of crime in the state.
“I, therefore, passionately implore you to fully renew your commitment to the provision of security of lives and property in the state, as was the case before the protests.”Photo Credit: Twitter
