To tackle the rising spate of insecurity in Nigeria and the Southeast, Nnewi Community in Anambra state, has launched the Nnewi Vigilante Service who were recently trained by the Nigeria Police Force, to combat crime and ensure safety and security of the local communities.

During the inauguration of the Anambra Vigilantes Group Volunteers from Nnewi, some new Innoson patrol vans were donated to the security outfit to aid the smooth execution of their duties.

The event which took place on 25th April at Igwe Nnewi Palace, also saw the inauguration of the Nnewi Security Committee headed by Chief Sir Patrick Ubajiaka.

Handing over the new Innoson patrol vans to the new constables, the Traditional Ruler of Nnewi, His Royal Highness, Igwe Dr. Kenneth Orizu (III), said that the patrol vans were donated through the contributions of Nnewi sons and daughters, to aid the new constables to stem and forestall any possible break down of law and order.

He encouraged the constables to be dedicated in their duties, especially in fishing out criminal elements in the town, urging them to maintain a good relationship with the locals to enable them to discharge their duties properly.

Also speaking, the Chief Executive Officer of Ibeto Group, Cletus Mmadubugwu Ibeto warned that Nnewi Security Outfit wasn’t established to control traffic, to serve as escorts, or to confiscate motorcycles, but to bring security closer to the people.

He revealed that the security outfit has the support of prominent Nnewi sons and daughters, noting that more support will be given to the outfit to make them effective.

In his address, the Governor of Anambra State, Willie Obiano who was represented by Chief Rommy Ezeonwuka urged the newly inaugurated AVG personnel to be diligent and tactful in their operations advising all local governments that are yet to key in into the ongoing reformation of the vigilante to emulate Nnewi community and reform their AVG for a better and improved security system across the state.
