In an effort to enhance security in Enugu State, Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, on Monday, visited the Umuogbua- Ihe tunnel (a hide-out and escape route for kidnappers operating in the area), located along Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway.
He also visited the Ihe-Agbogugu-Ogbaku-Amurri and Isu-Awaa-Agbudu forests, all in Awgu local government area, ordering the immediate demolition of Agbogugu and Isu-Awaa-Agbudu caves.
He inspected the ongoing construction of a military base along Enugu-Port Harcourt Expressway by Umuogbua Ihe, Awgu LGA and further directed that the bushes around the tunnel/kidnappers’ den be cleared immediately.

The governor was conducted round the locations by the Chairman of Awgu LGA, Hon. Stanley Okeke, members representing Awgu North and South state constituencies, Hon. Mrs. Jane Eneh, Hon. Johnson Chukwuobasi, respectively and other stakeholders.
