The governor of the State (Imo) Owelle Rochas Okorocha has commended the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris for dispatching the special squad that worked in tandem with officers and men of the Imo Police Command that finally ended the ugly story of the notorious and dreaded kidnapper, Mr. Henry Chibueze alias Vampire, few weeks after his men had taken him away from the Court where he was standing trial for the crimes he had committed.
The governor also extended his commendation to the men and Officers of the Directorate of Security Services (DSS) who first arrested Vampire in Owerri and the arrest raised the consciousness of both the Security Agencies and the public about the existence of the hardened criminal.
His Excellency reiterated that the declaration he made when he became governor in 2011 that no criminal would survive in the State is still valid and that was the reason men like Vampire were arrested in Owerri. He said even when his partners in crime took him away from the Court few weeks ago, he knew it would not be long and his ugly chapter would be closed.
On the reported threat against him and his family by Vampire over the N5m ransome he placed on his head, the governor said that such threat was an empty one because he knew that Vampire having stepped into Imo State to carry out criminal activities would soon become history and a bad one for that matter.
The governor once again reiterated that Imo State would remain no-go-area for criminals and that those who might succumb to the temptation of ignoring his warning would have themselves to blame at the end of the day.
