Hope Uzodinma, the Governor of Imo has accused the members of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and members of the opposition of fueling crisis in the state.
The governor said; “The opposition party and some aggrieved members of our party who are hiring boys from neigbouring states to come in here, allow me, I will deal with them. I can assure you, leave that for me.
“So, the people who threatened me that they will make Imo ungovernable before Imo becomes ungovernable, they will be ungovernable themselves,” he stated.
Uzodinma called on traditional rulers to help in the fight against insecurity, by urging them to fish out criminals in their domains.
“I had advised that traditional rulers should warn these boys. You should warn them because I am bringing a security strategy, known and unknown, to manage the security in Imo State,” he said.
Governor Uzodinma told the Security Council to go beyond organising vigilante groups in the state to gathering intelligence.
“This council must now go home and get us the names of every criminal in their communities. You must collect intelligence for us and security agencies to work,” he concluded.
