This is as he has strongly appealed to the Army not to allow innocent suspects arrested after the incident to be unduly punished.

Otti who pointed accusing fingers at the enemies of progress of Abia State, said he came to boost the morale of the soldiers following the condemnable incident of May 30.

“We have started getting very credible information. This intelligence gathering will continue, but I do not want it to dampen your morale. We have all been working together to secure this State in the last one year that I have been the Governor of the State, and I want to encourage you to continue your work, don’t get distracted.

“I believe, from credible intelligence available to us, that this criminal act may have been executed by people who are opposed to the progress and the good things that are happening in Abia. One of the last things we want to do is to humour them by allowing them to distract us.

“So, we will get to the root of the matter, we will arrest everyone that is involved.”

The Governor who announced a scholarship for the children of the deceased soldiers, reiterated the resolve of the State Government not to abandon the affected families.
