If you look at what is happening in Anambra state, our children are moving around as if there is nobody to protect them. No matter the level of madness being perpetuated in Nigeria, as a Governor, nobody will come to Anambra state and kill people of Anambra and go free under my watch! The security of lives and properties in Anam bra state will be sacrosanct. Anybody, whatever you call yourself, who walks into Anambra state, and damages the properties of Anambra state or kills any child of Anambra state, will have me to contend with. I will chase you by air, by land and by all means available”.
