The monarch also unveiled branded Toyota Sienna autos stated to had been donated by appropriate-engaging participants within town to fight against insecurity in Onitsha.
The industrial city has now not too long within the past fallen for criminals and hoodlums, who dispose guests and residents alike of their assets, even in plentiful daylight.
In the meantime, the Anambra Enlighten Describe of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has protested the amount of coloration for the branding of the autos donated for the Onitsha Ado Vigilante Community.

A assertion issued by the train Commandant of NSCDC, David Bille, stated:
“The honour of the Anambra Enlighten Describe of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) has been drawn to the branded autos painted in Civil Defence colours presented to the Onitsha Ado Vigilante Community.
“The Corps, whereas appreciating the Onitsha community for taking a daring step in complimenting the functions of the federal security companies within the fight against crimes within the train, urges the community to as a topic of urgency end a trade of colours on their autos to preserve a long way flung from clash of ardour.”
