Adding: “Government at all levels in Nigeria must see development of libraries as a must in this 21st century. This will go a long way in building literacy levels which will in turn help reduce all social vices such as militancy, kidnapping, raping, cultism, drug abuse etc.”

The statement continued: “We therefore, in strong terms condemn this abnormality and advice the government of Abia State to reconsider their position on this matter.

“We use this medium to assure all our members that the NLA will pursue this matter to it’s logical conclusion.”
