The Anambra State Police Command has blocked roads leading to the Command’s headquarters, Amawbia, following  the recent increasing insecurity and burning of police facilities in some parts of South East Nigeria,

The road blockade is said to be part of measures to secure government facilities in the area from being destroyed by hoodlums.

The roads were those leading to Nibo, Mbaukwu and Umuawulu communities.

Anambra Police Command Public Relations Officer, DSP Tochukwu Ikenga, told a correspondent of Anambra Broadcasting Corporation  (ABS) that these are times for everyone and urged the  people of the state, especially regular users of the roads to cooperate with the police.

He noted that the blockade and other measures are what the police are using to control and screen individuals who use the roads with the aim of protecting national infrastructures around the locations.

However, the Manager Trig Point Hotel, Nibo, Mrs. Theresa Igube, disclosed that the blockade has negatively affected their business to the extent that they are thinking of downsizing their workforce because of low patronage.

She said they had barely recovered from the effect of COVID 19 lockdown, and appealed to the government to save businesses in the area.

The General Manager Vertex View Hotel, Nibo, Mr Blessing Udeme, noted that siting of the hotel in Anambra State was as a result of Akulue ulo call by Governor Obiano and regretted that the hotel may shut down anytime soon because of low patronage caused by the road blockade.

Others who spoke to the ABS, Messers Envangelist Ejike Nwandu, Mrs. Anuli Okonkwo, Mrs. Mmutaka Ezeofor, Chinedu Aforka, and Mrs. Winifred Mbachi all regretted that the blockade has  seriously affected their means of livelihood.
