The Vice President, spoke on Tuesday during a visit to Owerri, Imo State, after Tuesday’s attack on the state prison facilities and Police Headquarters.

“We must reject the agents of anarchy that are seeking to weaponize the frustration and discontent of our young people for their own profit,” the Vice President said.
“The path of violence can only lead to a disaster that consumes everyone and leads to the desolation of our communities.
“It is easy to take peace for granted, but we need not learn the value of peace through the horrible crucible of war,”
