Uzodimma to name sponsors of insecurity in Imo.
At a stakeholders meeting scheduled for January 3, 2022, Governor Hope Uzodimma has stated that he will unveil the identities of people responsible for the state’s growing insecurity.
18 detainees recently captured by security operatives over the assassination of two councillors in the state have revealed the names of the insurgents’ backers, Uzodimma added.
In an address to All Progressives Congress (APC) elected officials in Owerri, the Governor stated that his government will do everything in its power to protect the safety of the state.
He went on to say that anyone working in the state to encourage criminality, no matter how high up, would face the full wrath of the law.
“Let me say these two councillors were recently killed and that those who killed them have been arrested and they have owned up to the crime.
“Don’t be intimidated. So long as I remain Governor in this state, they will face the law. We have evidence of those who are behind the insecurity based on information from the suspects. By January 3, 2022, when I will hold Imo stakeholders meeting I will reel out their names one after the other with the evidence of their role,” said Uzodimma.
