Owerri Jail Break: Gov Hope Uzodinma Apologized To IPOB, Says Attack Was Done By Politicians.
Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma has blamed the recent attack on security facilities in the state on aggrieved politicians, saying their aim was to destabilise his government and that of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He stated this on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today monitored by Dez Mayorz Media, three days after gunmen stormed the Nigerian Correctional Services and the Police Headquarters in Imo State, freeing an unspecified number of prison inmates.
When asked if the tragic incident was a direct attack on his government, the government replied in the affirmative.
He explained that security agencies have gathered intelligence on the sponsors of the thugs and their planning leading to the attack on government establishments on Monday.
“It is not only on my government, it is both on my government and the Federal Government. We have credible evidence leading to those who paid the hoodlums, where they met, and how they met. Security agencies are already working with this information,” he said.
“Some people are trying to sponsor a synchronise national crisis to bring the government of Muhammadu Buhari to disrepute, otherwise tell me why these things are happening at this time, particularly in Imo, APC state.
“People are sponsoring these people. Some of them already caught have made confessional statements. I am going to forward my report to the central government.”
The gunmen who stormed the security agencies on April 5 set the facilities ablaze.
During the attack, one person suspected to be a fleeing inmate was hit by a bullet while carrying his travel bag.
His lifeless body was visibly seen on the ground in front of the correctional centre.
The gunmen also razed the Imo State Police Command headquarters situated in Owerri and burnt almost all the vehicles parked at the command headquarters.
They were said to have operated from 1:00 am till 3:00 am during which they sang solidarity songs at the Government House Roundabout for about 30 minutes before attacking the facilities.
Dez Mayorz Media learnt that the governor retrieved his earlier stand that the attack was done by IPOB and ESN with an apology.
There is something fishy and very suspicious in this Imo Attack, and the whole thing is not just adding up.
All of a sudden, all of them are reversing themselves and turning around from their initial positions and statements against IPOB.
First, it was the new inspector general of Police, Alkali Usman Baba, upon resumption of office who said people should ignore the former inspector general of Police, Adamu’s claims against IPOB on Imo Attack.
Before we knew it, Uwazurike went to BBC Igbo and spoke nicely and kindly in favour of Nnamdi Kanu and his IPOB.
And this night, Hope Uzodimma has gone to Channels TV, and reversed himself and said categorically that the people that attacked Imo State are not IPOB.
What is happening? sense conspiracy and a change of plan and tactics by the evil oppressor terrorising the old Eastern Nigerian people. They are definitely on to something. All the same, to God be the glory.
Recall the evil Nigerian Government army have bombarded innocent Citizens in Akwa Ibom and Orlu recently in the name we are coming for IPOB.
