Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has vowed to unravel those behind the insecurity in the state while also doing everything possible to root them out the state.
Speaking on Channels Television Politics Today on Friday which was monitored by The Eastern Updates, Uzodinma said; ‘In a few weeks’ time – what we have deployed now, we will soon unravel those behind the killings and insecurity in Imo State’.
Recall that before now, Uzodinma has repeatedly attributed insecurity in Imo State to politics.
When asked whether it was possible to identify the offenders, he promised to address the problem and stated that he had given the security agencies the task of finding those in charge.
He claimed that the majority of those assassinated were members of his administration.
“I have told the security to tell me the reasons behind it. It is not a coincidence that many people who are being killed are members of my party, APC. A child cries in the night and in the day it is lying lifeless.
“It is not also a coincidence that only lately, prominent members of my party that they participated in the last election – their houses are being attacked. Some traditional rulers that I have sympathy for our party, their party were also being attacked,” he lamented.
However, the incumbent governor is imploring the masterminds of the crimes to stop manipulating politics by killing innocent people.
“I plead with those people who are behind the killings in Imo State, blaming and kidnapping of human beings in Imo state in the name of politics to stop, I said this times without number that the insecurity in Imo state is politically contrived and those who are behind it know themselves,” he said.
Uzodinma claimed that 90 percent of those killed in the state are APC members, noting that this type of insecurity is directed solely towards one political party.
Hope Uzodinma will be running for re-election when the governorship election holds later in the year.
