The Imo state police command has arrested 15 people for reportedly attacking the convoy of the Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma.
The attack on the governor’s convoy reportedly occurred when workers of the Imo State Oil Producing Area Developing Commission were protesting over their unpaid five months’ salaries.
According to The Guardian, the police claimed that those arrested were caught with weapons.
The spokesperson for the Imo state police command, Orlando Ikeokwu, claimed they recovered a gun, two machetes, a padlock and chain from some of the suspects.
