The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodimma has said politicians are the ones sponsoring killings in the state. 

The Governor made this revelation during a television interview.

The Informant247 observes that the state is the epicenter of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) attacks.

Many offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and security formations have been attacked by assailants in the state.

Uzodimma said, “Today in my conversation with stakeholders in the state I made it very clear that events in the past have shown clearly that those behind the insecurity in Imo State are politicians and this insecurity is politically contrived.

“In that presentation I came to a clear position that all the people that have been attacked in Imo State and are members of APC and those close to my government and the houses that have been burnt down belong to them.

“No member of the opposition party has been attacked or his house has been burnt down in Imo State. And this has continued to happened.

“You just mentioned former governor Ikedi Ohakim. Three days after he summoned the special dinner of Imo stakeholders encouraging them to support the government of APC, he was attacked and his security details killed.

“I presented this matter to the people of Imo State. Of late some arrests have been made. I challenge security agencies In Imo to make public as soon as possible the findings of the report and those behind the killings be named.”
