The Commissioner of Police in Anambra, Echeng Echeng, has assured officers and men in the command that he will stand by them at all times in the fight against insecurity.
Echeng made the promise when he visited some police officers who sustained gunshot wounds during the offensive operation against gunmen at Afor Nnobi, Idemili South Local Government Area on Friday.
Echeng, who was joined in the visit by the heads of the Army, DSS, NSCDC and other security agencies in the state, praised the police officers for their gallantry.
He said the visit was to boost their morale and encourage them to stand firm.
According to him, though criminal elements may try, they would not succeed provided that security operatives remained steadfast.
He wished the wounded officers quick recovery, assuring them that the police would not abandon them or leave anyone behind.
“We also wish to assure residents of Anambra that the command is more determined than ever to flush out the miscreants in the state and make the entire state safer for law abiding citizens to go about their lawful business.
