The member representing Oyi constituency, Hon. Vivian Okadigbo, had, during the plenary, warned that if nothing urgent was done to tame what she described as a deadly terror squad in the community, the entire state might be plunged into chaos.

The lawmaker decried ‘indiscriminate’ raping of women in the community by the squad, adding that Nteje community had been restless for some time now.

The motion which was seconded by Hon. Uche Okafor representing Ayamelum Constituency which is also a neighboring community, was unanimously endorsed by the 30-member House.
