There has been an alleged threat to public peace in Umumbo town in Ayamelum LGA of Anambra State but the police say they will not fold their arms and allow this become reality.

Therefore, a meeting was summoned between the community leaders and representatives of the Fulani herdsmen on Wednesday.

This was mainly to enhance the current peaceful coexistence and forestall breakdown of law and order between herdsmen and host community.

But the representatives of Fulani herdsmen were quick to declare that there is no existing feud in the area and they are living peacefully without any hindrance.

This came as a relief and the Commissioner of Police Anambra State Command, CP Garba Baba Umar. He gave an assurance of adequate protection as they continue to live together peacefully.

One way he believes they can enhance the harmonious relationships amongst them is to hold regular meetings.

Finally, the Igwe of Omumba town, HRH Igwe S. Ichidubem (JP) gave his blessing to the new resolve to maintain peace in his community.

He also commended the commissioner of Police for supporting Governor Willie Obianio in making the state the safest in the country.
