We’ll soon expose those sponsoring violence in Imo, says Uzodinma


 Hope Uzodinma, governor of Imo, says those sponsoring violence within the state will soon be exposed.


Uzodinma said this during a live broadcast to commemorate the workers’ day celebration on Saturday.


Imo has been witnessing increasing attacks, with two police stations razed while a federal prison has been raided in recent weeks.


The governor had blamed the attacks on aggrieved politicians.


During the broadcast, NAN quoted him as saying the sponsors of the attacks are unhappy together with his achievements after one year in office.


“You would have noticed that disgruntled politicians together with militants and other criminal elements have unleashed violence in our state known traditionally for its peace and hospitality.


“Unable to contain themselves over the developmental strides of our administration in only one year, these enemies of our state have devised devious ways of not only distracting us but striking fear on our citizens.


“Let me assure the great people of Imo that investigations to unmask the sponsors of those security breaches within the state have reached a complicated stage and really soon we will expose and prosecute them.”


Uzodinma further said his administration will use all lawful means to crush criminals within the state.


“The government together with all the security agencies is quite capable of protecting the lives and property of all residents of the state; I swore an oath to that and that i will never shirk this sacred responsibility,” he said.


“I am not a man who makes excuses, I even have come to figure for the people regardless of the circumstances and no amount of distraction can derail me from my mission.


“I must warn that the day of mindless criminality within the state are over. Let me use this opportunity to assure all Imo folks that i will leave no stone unturned in ensuring the safety and safety of all of us.


“Without any fear of contradiction, I can declare to you that the recent security challenges within the state are effectively contained.


“Imo people should therefore set about their lawful businesses with none fear whatsoever.”
