Amaechi replied by saying that his people in Ubima have been at the receiving end of the rough edges of insecurity like kidnapping and that but for his appeal to the Chief of Army Staff for a deployment of soldiers to Ubima the security situation could have been worse alleging that the state Government refused to tackle insecurity in state.
