Sen. Orji Kalu, the Chief Whip of the Senate said the country will not move forward if thuggery, violence and vices are condoned.

He said this in reaction to the violent attack on Uzuakoli Police Station in Bende Local Government Area of Abia state. Gunmen had in the early hours of Monday set ablaze the Uzuakoli Police Station located on Umuahia-Uzuako­li-Ohafia highway.

According to him, the attack was “unwarranted, uncivilized and barbaric’’.

Kalu, in a statement issued on Tuesday in Abuja, condemned the ugly incident and called for the perpetrators to be brought to book.

Thereafter, he called on security agencies to work collectively in averting any recurrence.

“I condemn in strong terms the attack on Uzuakoli Police Station in Bende local government area of Abia and the subsequent freeing of detainees from the station.

”The ugly incident is saddening and devastating. The personnel of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) who were attacked are serving the country and its citizenry and as such shouldn’t be molested.

Meanwhile, Kalu appealed to the people of Bende LGA to be calm and peaceful.

    What is your definition of violence? Do you think violence is only limited to guns and knives? It goes to show how myopic you’re. When a whole treasury of Abia state was looted for your personal interest; against the interest of the electorate and people your serve, it is violence. When the people of Abia state had no road or p’raps descent infrastructure to add value to their lives; it was violence against them and humanity. When under your regime, hope fizzled and there was no future for the people in Abia; it was violence. The sorry state of affairs under your leadership in Abia frustrated as many; led to hopelessness and thuggery for survival; that was violence because of your greed. When you had so much looted treasury and began to carve a village for yourself and naming streets after every strong man in your orbits in your vast compound shows how ignorant and stupid you’re. When you co-mingled the state treasury and personal business and could not differentiate; it was violence
    Now after all the violence you inflected on your people; yet was able to buy our way to become a senator; it was violence. Here we’re with another platform to showcase the kinda corrupt leadership prevalent in Nigeria
    Sad Indeed
