Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has said that he has not named those behind insecurity in Imo and other southeast states because security agents have not completed their investigation.
Newsbreak reports that Southeast Nigeria has seen a surge in violence. Imo and Anambra State have been most affected. While locals and Biafra agitators address the hoodlums as ‘Unknown Gunmen’, Nigerian authorities have accused the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) or its armed wing, Eastern Security Network (ESN) of masterminding several attacks against security installations, government buildings and citizens.
In fact, at the weekend, gunmen ran rampage in Imo, operating in Ihitte Uboma, Obowo and Ehime Mbano Local Government Areas (LGAs) of the state.
Speaking in Lagos State during a media parley at the weekend, Uzodimma said: “I explained that day that I will allow them to complete their job.
“The last time I contacted them (security agencies), they asked for two more weeks. l do hope that in two weeks, the information will be ready and it will be made public to Nigerians.”
