Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State spoke yesterday while featuring on Politics Today, a Channels Television programme, said some aggrieved politicians are behind the recent attacks on police stations and a correctional facility in the state and not IPOB.
He said the politicians’ objective is to destablise the All Progressives Congress (APC) administration.
He said: “What happened in Imo State last Monday is unbelievable. A group of hoodlums, of course sponsored by some known politicians in Imo state, decided to destroy public infrastructure and government facilities — and attacked a correctional centre facility and also attacked a police state headquarters.
The police had earlier said the Eastern Security Network (ESN), an outfit of IPOB, was behind the violence in the state.
But Uzodimma said hoodlums were hired from outside Imo state, noting that they only pretended to be IPOB members.
“It is not about IPOB. Yes, we agree, we have aggrieved IPOB members. But I can tell you, those who are doing these destructions, most of them were brought from outside Imo State.”
