The police in Abia State say they are taking steps to ensure there is no breakdown of law and order following the stay-at-home order by MASSOB.
 
The command has given the assurance that it has put in place aerial and land surveillance and is ready to clamp down on any person, groups or individuals intending to compel the residents to stay at home.
 
The Commissioner of Police, Adeleye Oyebade, says the directive by MASSOB is an infringement on the fundamental rights of the citizens and will not be tolerated.
