*FLASH: IMO STATE GOVERNMENT TO SET UP A COMMISSION OF INQUIRY TO X-RAY THE CAUSES AND MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS ON THE IZOMBE CARNAGE*

There is an adage that says: "A stich in time, saves nine". Dealing with an emergency situation earlier, will halt the situation from escalating or heighten commotion.
In addition, it is only when the cause of a problem is found out then, recommendations for resolution will follow suit.
Sequel to the carnage that took precedence in Izombe Clan in Oguta L.G.A last week Thursday, the Governor had been so keen to ameliorate the situation with a rapid response squad.
However, the Governor cannot relent in responding to insecurity in the State, be it caused by the military or by desperadoes who Sabotage the territorial integrity of our regions by counter-attack.

Our proactive Governor believes in dialogue as a means to mediate conflict, and not by arbitration.
Therefore, taking cognizance of the unfounded assault and clash between the Youths of Izombe and members of the Armed Forces dressed in khaki, the Chief Security Officer (CSO) of the State has vowed to take the bull by the horn. Thereby minimize the mixed reactions of the affected indigenes of Izombe who plyed helter-skelter in search for refuge, in their own fatherland.
What a taboo!

To that end, the people's oriented Governor urge the Youths of Izombians to sheath their sword, as he set up a panel of inquiry to access the causes of the incidence and proffer recommendations to nip in the bud the situation on ground.

Izombians should therefore maintain status quo, even as the Holy Bible says:

Proverbs 24:6 (NKJV) For by wise counsel you will wage your own war, And in a multitude of counselors there is safety.

Therefore, consultation is necessary, followed by sensitization before executing our campaign awareness. Hence, the Chief Security Officer of the State does not take laws into his hands, but will rather seek for justice through due process.
The reason why he intends to constitute a panel of inquiry, to investigate the happenstance that inundated Izombians, and then arrest the situation.
