The Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has stated that the type of insecurity in his state is directed solely towards one political party.
Uzodimma who claimed that the majority of those assassinated were members of his administration, vowed to root out the perpetrators of insecurity in the state.
He added that he had charged security agencies to fish out those responsible for the menace.
He made this known while speaking on Channels Television programme on Friday, while urging the masterminds of the crimes to stop manipulating politics by killing innocent people.
He said; “In a few weeks’ time, what we have deployed now, we will soon unravel those behind the killings and insecurity in Imo State.
“I have told the security to tell me the reasons behind it. It is not a coincidence that many people who are being killed are members of my party, APC. A child cries in the night and in the day it is lying lifeless.
“It is not also a coincidence that only lately, prominent members of my party that they participated in the last election – their houses are being attacked. Some traditional rulers that I have sympathy for our party, their palaces were also being attacked.
“I plead with those people who are behind the killings in Imo State, blaming and kidnapping of human beings in Imo state in the name of politics to stop, I said this times without number that the insecurity in Imo state is politically contrived and those who are behind it know themselves,” he said.
"90 percent of those killed in the state are APC members, this type of insecurity is directed solely towards one political party," he added.
