President Muhammadu Buhari has declared the attack on the police command headquarters and correctional centre in Owerri, the capital of Imo state, a terrorist act.

Buhari, according to Garba Shehu, senior special assistant to the president on media and publicity, has ordered security agencies to go after the perpetrators.

Several prisoners were released early Monday morning after gunmen targeted a federal correctional centre in the state.

The police command in Owerri was also targeted, and several cars were destroyed as a result of the incident.

Buhari asked security and intelligence agencies to clampdown on terrorists in the state, adding that freed inmates should be rearrested.

“The President directed security and intelligence agencies in the state and the geo-political zone to fully mobilize and go after the terrorists, apprehend them and get them punished under the full weight of the law,” the statement reads.

“President Buhari then appealed to members of the public to assist the law enforcement agencies with any relevant information that could lead to the apprehension of these criminals who perpetrated this despicable act.

“He also urged members of the public to be vigilant as all of us have a stake in preserving our way of life from disruption by terrorists and anarchists while the Federal Government will use every available tool at its disposal to confront and terminate this bare-faced anarchy.”
