Igbo Community Denies Vilifying Al-Makura, Police Over Insecurity



The president general of Igbo community in Nasarawa State, Mr Cyril Ibeh, has denied reports that he vilified the state government and the police over insecurity in the state.

In the purported report he was quoted as saying that Igbo traders have suffered huge losses in the course of carrying out their businesses in the state, especially those who transit to local markets.

Mr Ibeh who commended the Nasarawa State government for ensuring peaceful atmosphere for Igbo traders to carry out their businesses, said the malicious report was targeted at discrediting him as the Igbo leader in the state.

He said with the construction of over 10 modern markets in the state, the Nasarawa State government has given Igbo traders a new vista to expand the horizon of their commercial activities.

The Igbo community leader expressed readiness to work with other communities in the state to consolidate on the existing peace and mutual trust.

He explained further that the network of roads constructed by the Al-Makura administration has reduced the cost of doing business in all the major towns and cities in the state.
