BREAKING: Uzodinma Names Okorocha, Nwosu As Sponsors Of Insecurity In Imo

The Imo State Govt has named former governor, Rochas Okorocha, and his son-in-law, Gov. Uche Nwosu, amongst sponsors and financiers of INSECURITY within the State.

A remark signed through Media Adviser to the Governor, Oguwike Nwachuku, disclosed that Okorocha and Nwosu had been implicated via suspects lately in detention, including that they’ve been in particular discussed through suspects who’re within the custody of safety brokers, as being sponsors of kidnapping and banditry in Imo State, the usage of their courting with former ex-militants to perpetrate the crimes

“Rather than clear their names, they appear bent on using both overt and covert means to blackmail the Police High Command, which legitimately arrested Uche Nwosu. They are also actively seeking to dent the image of the fine security officers attached to the Governor of Imo State”, News Express quoted a statement issued on Monday by the State Government.

The statement reads: “Plot by those believed to be fueling insecurity, particularly kidnapping, banditry, arson and cannibalism in Imo State ahead of January 4, 2022 Imo Stakeholders meeting got to a head on Monday with false news of the alleged arrest of the security officers attached to Governor Hope Uzodimma.

“Governor Uzodimma, it is believed, will use the Stakeholders meeting to expose the identities of those behind insecurity and other forms of criminality in Imo State. This has prompted Imo citizens to become more curious to discover the identities of those undermining their peace and prosperity. Thus, the current media frenzy by both Rochas Okorocha and Uche Nwosu appears to be strengthening the notion of their culpability.

“For the avoidance of doubt, Okorocha and Nwosu have been specifically mentioned by suspects who are in the custody of security agents, as being sponsors of kidnapping and banditry in Imo State, using their relationship with former ex-militants to perpetrate the crimes.

“Rather than clear their names, they appear bent on using both overt and covert means to blackmail the Police High Command, which legitimately arrested Uche Nwosu. They are also actively seeking to dent the image of the fine security officers attached to the Governor of Imo State.

“The public must be informed that the entire report is false and a failed attempt to frustrate the Imo Stakeholders meeting taking place on Tuesday.

“The mass of Imo People, who are undoubtedly peaceful and fun loving are enjoined to discountenance the serial falsehood that continues to be churned out by the embattled duo. The focus and direction of the Gov. Uzodimma led government, it must be emphasised, will continue to be about the wellbeing of the people of the State, no matter what it takes.”
