Abia State Governor’s Commitment to Security and Lokpanta Market Transformation

Abia State Governor Addresses Nnamdi Kanu’s Incarceration

Abia State Governor, Alex Otti, recently spoke out about the continued incarceration of Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Governor Otti clarified that President Bola Tinubu’s administration should not be held responsible for Kanu’s detention.

Speaking during a media parley in Umuahia, the state capital, Otti revealed that his administration is diligently working behind the scenes to secure Kanu’s release through an alternative approach.

However, he emphasized that these efforts would not be disclosed to the media until they yield the desired results.

Otti stated, “I believe in results rather than media hype.

We do not want media noise.

We are working very hard to ensure his (Kanu’s) release.”

Governor Otti Reveals Disturbing Discoveries in Lokpanta Cattle Market Area

During his monthly media chat, Governor Alex Otti shared shocking findings concerning the Lokpanta Cattle Market area in Umunneochi LGA, along the Enugu-Umuahia-Aba Port Harcourt Expressway.

Otti disclosed that the government had discovered over 50 decomposed dead bodies, more than 20 headless bodies, and numerous human skeletons in the vicinity.

He assured the public that his government is fully committed to addressing security issues without compromise.

The presence of prostitution, narcotics trade, and other criminal activities around the Lokpanta Cattle Market led to a government operation that resulted in the closure of some brothels and a significant improvement in security in Umunneochi.

Additionally, Governor Otti announced plans to transform the Lokpanta market into a daily market, operating from 6 am to 6 pm, with sections allocated for cattle dealers and other businesses.


Governor Alex Otti’s stance on Nnamdi Kanu’s situation reflects his commitment to achieving results in a quieter and more effective manner, rather than engaging in publicized efforts.

This approach is designed to avoid media noise and focuses on securing Kanu’s release through discreet means.

On the other hand, the disturbing discoveries in the Lokpanta Cattle Market area highlight the gravity of security issues faced by the state.

Governor Otti’s determination to tackle these problems head-on, regardless of any resistance, emphasizes the government’s dedication to improving security and maintaining law and order in the region.

The transformation of the Lokpanta market is a step toward addressing the root causes of insecurity and criminal activities in the area, which can have a positive impact on the community.
