The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), has vowed to arrest those responsible for the attack on the country home of Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma.
Gunmen had on Saturday attacked Uzodinma’s residence, killed three security personnel and set structures in the premises ablaze at Omuma, Oru East Local Government Area of the state.
Kayode Fayemi, chairman of the NGF and Ekiti State governor, in a statement on Sunday, condemned the act and sympathised with Uzodinma and all those affected in the attack.
He said all hands must be on deck to arrest the perpetrators.
“The Forum calls on all good citizens to cooperate with the nation’s security forces and the government in trying to build a civil, safe and secure environment for our citizens.
“For those behind these crimes, they must understand that they do not have the monopoly of violence.
“This is taking criminality to reckless and irresponsible heights.
“All hands must be on deck to fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act as in our view, they constitute a small league of persons trying to harm the corporate existence of our beloved country, Nigeria.
“The mantra for every Nigerian at such a challenging time in our history must be how to forge peace and unity across the nation’s divides and to shun violence and wanton destruction.
“Only then can we have a country to call our own,” the governor said.
