IPOB, Others Behind Attacks In Imo State – Gov. Uzodinma
Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State Governor, on Sunday, revealed that a section of Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB members,
hoodlums, bandits, and politicians are behind the attacks in his State.
Governor Uzodinma said in the next few days, their identities would be unveiled alongside their actions so that they can face justice squarely.
Uzodinma made this known during church service held at the Victory Chapel, Imo State Government House, Owerri.
He said : “At today’s church service held at the Victory Chapel, Imo State Government House, Owerri, I had the opportunity to address some issues pertinent to the safety of our lives and properties as Imolites amidst the prevailing insecurity.”
“I disclosed that security agencies have identified those behind the recent disturbances in the state. In the next few days, their identities would be unveiled alongside their actions so that they can face justice squarely.”
“I assured that our administration would use all within its powers to identify and flush out criminals in Imo and in doing that, we will never negotiate with criminals. I used the avenue to warn anyone involved in any form of criminality aimed at bringing down Imo State by any means to have a rethink or such persons will have themselves to blame. Those out to bring the state down must be prepared to be brought down as well, I maintained.”
“I appreciate Imo residents for their understanding and resilience throughout the period of security breaches and skirmishes. The mayhem in Imo State was carried out by hoodlums, bandits, a section of IPOB members and aggrieved politicians who have decided to sponsor violence to derail the Government of the day but we are determined to overcome them all. “
