Nnewi is the second largest commercial and industrial city after Onitsha in Anambra State in southeastern Nigeria.
Just like Onitsha and Azia, Nnewi has rejigged its security outfit, providing them with the needed logistics for effective community policing.
This is in response to the security challenges that seemed to have overwhelmed the conventional security agencies, the rebranded vigilantes who were recently trained are all from Nnewi and this will make the exchange of intelligence seamless and effective.
Through donations from Nnewi sons and daughters, they have been equipped with security equipment including seven rugged security vans procured from Innoson Motors (IVM) for mobility, other items, and also arrangement have been made for their welfare.
They will definitely complement the work of the police and other security agencies in intelligence gathering and crime prevention, to ensure a safe Nnewi.
