LP Guber Candidate, Achonu, Decries Monarchs Killing In Imo

Listen to article

Senator Athan Achonu, the LP Governorship Candidate from Imo State, raised serious objections to the mounting insecurity and criminal acts, accompanied by a series of killings and intentional damage to valuable public and private infrastructure.

Moved by the death of the respected Traditional Ruler, His Royal Majesty, Eze James Nnamdi, in Nguru Autonomous Community, Aboh-Mbaise Local Council, he called for an end to the ongoing carnage, emphasising the need for peace and harmony in the region.

Senator Achonu, who represented Imo North district complained about what he dubbed ‘the abominable disregard for the sanctity of human life and defilement of our cherished traditional institution,’ and asked all the perpetrators to discontinue their activities and let the State return to normalcy of peace and tranquillity.

His words: ‘It is saddening that our state has recently descended into clear anarchy, where brutes run riot without any restraint and blood is spilled on daily basis, with the current government apparently short of ideas on how to handle the situation.’

‘I commiserate with the people of Nguru, Ndi Mbaise and the entire Imolites on this yet another unwarranted killing of our people and urge the governor to rise to the occasion and save our people.’

He urged the people of Imo State to join in his ‘Take Back Imo’ agenda, as that is ‘the only guarantee at this time for a safer and more prosperous’ Imo.

He added, ‘It is obvious from what is going on in our state that the current governor lacks ideas on how to tackle the incessant killings. Whatever might be the case, I want to urge Imolites to stay committed to the ‘Take Back Imo’ agenda, as we are set to bring back sanity and cleanse our state of all the madness currently going on in it.’

The region has been shaken by multiple cases of royal fathers being targeted by unidentified gunmen as they are usually being killed or abducted, with indications linking these occurrences to the agitation led by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
