The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Imo has alleged that the State Governor, Hope Uzodinma is solely the one behind the series of extrajudicial killings in the state.
The opposition party asked the governor to account for the killing of innocent civilians in the state.
The Imo state PDP Chairman, Charles Ugwu made the allegations while briefing newsmen yesterday.
He alleged that the governor failed to address the security issues in the state because he was masterminding them.
He regretted that prominent sons and daughters of Imo had been killed within a space of one month and the governor has done nothing about it.
‘The governor has to tell us what he knows about the gruesome murder of the Oru-east PDP Youth Leader as well as that of his friend, Alhaji Ahmed Gulak.
‘There is no gainsaying that the Uzodinma-led government lacks the competence and willpower to protect the lives of the people.
‘We, therefore, urge the federal government to set up a panel to investigate the governor to find out the root cause of the extrajudicial killings in Imo State.
‘Meanwhile, we appeal to all Imolites to remain calm and prayerful in this trying period’ they concluded.
