The Nigeria Police Force says its investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terror groups are getting support from some Nigerians.

The police in Anambra State has urged citizens of the state to be security conscious during these ember months in order to ensure public safety and peace.

A statement signed by the police public relations officer, Mr Ikenga Tochukwu, a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), quoted the Commissioner of Police, Echeng Eworo, as advising the citizens to promptly report any suspicious movement within their environment to the nearest police station or call emergency number 112 or command control room number: 07039194332.
