The governor of Enugu State, Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, appealed to officers and men of the Nigeria Police Force in the state to return to their duty posts.
Ugwuanyi made the appeal on Wednesday when he paid a condolence visit to the command over the loss of lives, injuries sustained and destruction of property during the #EndSARS protests hijacked by hoodlums.
In a statement issued by his Senior Special Assistant, Louis Amoke, the governor described the mayhem unleashed by hoodlums as “an unusual and challenging period for the Police Force”, which was a needless ill-wind that didn’t blow anyone any good.
“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.

The governor also added, “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.”
