Every well-meaning southeastern indigene would want to see a peaceful Owerri City. Imo State was one of the most peaceful states in Nigeria. 

How did we arrive at this level of insecurity in the city? In the year 2019, Owerri was the most peaceful city in the Southeast region till late 2020.


The Eastern Heartland state harbors numerous government facilities and private investments. Owerri, Imo State houses many hotels and a lot of parks for tourism.

The state was a choice for many tourists and relaxation and vacation because of the presence of hotels and tourist centers littered in the city. It was a state for merriment and fun. It was a state free from insecurity as people have no worries about their security.


The peace of the city was overturned when Eastern Security Network was announced by the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra. This security outfit was created to fight intruders and armed herdsmen in the forests of the Southeast region, according to Mazi Nnamdi Kanu.

After the clash between ESN members and the Nigerian military give rise to insecurity in Orlu, Imo State. Followed by the death of the purported commander of ESN, Ikonso, peace becomes far from Imo State.

Many criminal groups have been attacking military officers, destroying government facilities, burning police stations, and killing innocent citizens. This can only be the devilish work of unknown gunmen and enemies of the state.

The most peaceful state before is now the most dangerous place to live. The Nigerian military and unknown gunmen attacks have left many dead. People wake up to hear bad news of burning and killing every morning.

Owerri is not safe to live in right now.


Opinion: All well-meaning Nigerians should support the military in the fight to restore peace in the country. Every southeastern indigene should report anybody engaging in criminal activities to harm the government and the state. Don't be an agent of destabilization.

What is your opinion and suggestion to end this ongoing menace?
