The Supreme Court Governor of Imo State, Sen. Simple Hope Uzodinma, has urged the unknown gun men that have been reeking havoc in the state and wasting lives/properties, to drop their arms and stop the killings in the fear of God.
Gov. Uzodinma who once failed to mention the names of the hands behind the kidnapping and the killings in his state, as promised earlier in 2022, made the plea after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari earlier this week.
The president summoned Uzodinma over the rising insecurity in the region especially in Imo following the bombing of a house belonging to Ohanaeze Ndigbo leader, Prof. George Obiozor.
Speaking to BBC Igbo, Uzodinma pleaded with the ‘Unknown Gunmen’ to stop all the killings, In his words; he said
“The president told me to come and brief him on all that was happening in not just Imo state but the entire Igbo land. We discussed on actions to take to make the region better which is why I am pleading with my brothers and sisters, all our young men and women because I found out that there are some of them who don’t understand what we are doing.”
Those who believe in tying charms around their waists and doing whatever they like, attacking police stations and killing people, I am pleading with you to stop.”
“I am appealing to them to stop the bloodshed and have the fear of God.” “I pleaded with the President to help me and he said he would”.
