“Thanks to police intelligence, we have uncovered plans by members of IPOB and Eastern Security Network (ESN) to hijack civil protests on June 12,” he said.

“We advise Imo people to steer clear because some of those conveners have ulterior motives.

“We will not tolerate any attempt by hoodlums to destabilise the state, and anybody or group that insists on disrupting the fragile peace in the state will meet his/her waterloo.”

He urged residents of the state to support efforts by the police and other security agencies to restore peace and create an enabling environment for commercial and business activities to thrive.

“We call on Imo residents to join hands with us to fully restore the peaceful atmosphere for which the state is known, so that businesses can thrive again and normal life restored,’’ he said.
