Stop inciting insecurity, Uzodimma tells opposition, IPOB

Factual Pursuit of Truth for Progress

Hope Uzodimma, has asked members of opposition parties and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) to stop inciting insecurity in the state.

Speaking at a press conference at the Government House in Owerri, the governor, on Wednesday, debunked the speculation that his administration masterminded the killing of innocent people in Ekeututu in the Orsu Local Government Area of the state.

Uzodimma said instead of encouraging the breakdown of the law and order, opposition members and IPOB should support the state to prosper.

Uzodimma said his government would work out modalities to compensate traders whose goods and wares were destroyed during bandits operations but would ensure the culprits are brought to book.

The governor said his administration is not masterminding genocide in the area, asking his opponents to return from Abuja and visit the scene of the incident.

He also debunked the allegation that he hacked into the server of the Independent National Electoral Commission in his Omuma ward in the Oru East Local Government Area of the state and manipulated the figures.

The governor dispelled the allegation by one of the counsels for the detained leader of the IPOB, Alloy Ejimoakor, that his administration was killing people in the community with the state-owned Ebubeagu Security Personnel.

He said he was not ready for the politics of his re-election, adding that he was presently preoccupied with the electoral plans to ensure that his party, the All Progressives Congress emerges victorious in the South-East region in February 2023.
