Governor Hope Uzodinma, the executive governor of Imo state has revealed that the attack in the state on Easter Monday were not the handiwork of IPOB but were single-handedly sponsored by aggrieved politicians.
The governor made this revelation on Wednesday evening, April 7, while he appeared on Channels Television’s program title ‘Politics Today’.
Recall on Monday, April 5, armed hoodlums attacked the Owerri Correctional Prison and freed over 1,800 prison inmates. They also set ablaze the Imo State Police Command headquarters in Owerri and burnt down parked vehicles at the command headquarters.
Authorities had earlier accused the Eastern Security Network of being the masterminds behind the attacks, but the group leader, Nnamdi Kanu, debunked this, saying they weren’t responsible.
The Imo state governor, Hope Uzodinma has now come out to say that the attacks were sponsored by “a group of aggrieved politicians”to destabilise the government of APC”.
In his word, Uzodinma said:
‘Their (tactics is that they try to identify grievances of people in a particular area. If it is in Imo State and probably there are some IPOB people who are not happy, they hire hoodlums from outside Imo State, they bring them in pretending to be IPOB and they commit these dimes and they go away.
“So, it is not about IPOB. Yes, we agree, we have aggrieved IPOB members but I can tell you those who are doing this destruction, most of them were brought in from outside Imo State.
‘What is important for Nigerians to know is the plot by a group of aggrieved politicians to destabilise the government of APC.
“I have done some thorough investigation and I have some credible lead as to those who are sponsoring these activities of these hoodlums.
“I don’t want to pre-empt the investigations of other security agencies but I can tell you we are working hard to ensure the sponsors of this dastardly acts must be brought to book.”
