Gov. Obiano launches aerial battle against criminals

The Anambra State Governor, Chief Willie Obiano, says the state has employed the use of aerial surveillance as part of the tactics to combat criminal activities in the state.

Briefing journalists on the initiative on Tuesday, the state Commissioner for Information, Culture and Tourism, Dr. Uju Nwogu, said the governor had to procure a special police helicopter to carry out aerial surveillance of the entire state during the Yuletide.

Nwogu said the helicopter surveillance team would be "feeding intelligence gathered from the skies to the special police patrol cars on the ground in order to ensure a comprehensive coverage of the state."

She said the police authorities had to oblige the governor's request for the police aerial surveillance helicopter because of the governor's antecedent in crime fighting.

"We want to give Ndi Anambra a crime-free Christmas. With the Helicopter Squad in the air and the special patrol cars on the ground, Anambra shall continue to maintain its position as the safest state in Nigeria," the commissioner said.

Two weeks ago, Obiano had donated 25 special patrol cars to the state command of the Nigeria Police to enable them to sustain the fight against crimes in the state.

Similarly, the governor had temporarily opened two flyovers at Aroma and Amawbia junctions along the Awka/Onitsha highway in Awka, the state capital, to ease up traffic congestion usually experienced in the area during the Yuletide.

Performing the partial opening ceremony, Obiano said the bridge projects had reached 95 per cent completion.

He explained that after the festivities, the flyovers would be closed down to ensure a proper completion of work on them.
