Icheke Anigbogu, town union presidents, chairmen of vigilante groups, leaders of ASATU youth, leaders of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, and other stakeholders.
The ideation of a community-level awareness campaign to safeguard both public and private structures in Ayamelum was as a result of the destruction of public and private property across the country a few days ago that sprawled from hoodlums, deviating the original intention of the peaceful #EndSARS protesters witnessed across the country and overseas for two weeks.
Hon Barr Ben A.Onyeabo commended the #EndSARS peaceful protesters in their genuine intentions but condemned the violence that ensued when hoodlums infiltrated the peaceful protest. He told Ayamelum youths and stakeholders to resist any attempt to use them to perpetrate evil in the name of the #EndSARS protest. While noting that concerns conveyed by the peaceful youth protesters are being taken care of at all levels of government, he called on the people of Ayamelum to guard against the wanton destruction of public and private property in the Local Government Council by hoodlums. He enjoined the representatives who were in attendance to take the message to their various communities.
The speaker of Anambra State House of Assembly, Rt Hon. Uche Okafor who is an indigene of Ayamelum also conveyed his message for peace in Ayamelum during the campaign. He urged the youths in a phone conversation to prioritize the security of infrastructures in Ayamelum at all times.
After the campaign, the TC Chairman Ayamelum led all in attendance to the Divisional Police Office at Anaku and assured the police of the unflinching supports of the people of Ayamelum while enjoining them to shun brutality, remain professional and friendly in the discharge of their duties in the Local Government.
