The Imo State government has revealed that the attack on the country home of the state governor, Hope Uzodinma might have been politically motivated.

This was stated in a statement released on Saturday, April 24.

According to the statement, a preliminary investigation into the attack on the country home of the governor in Oru East local government area revealed this much.

In the statement, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, said an investigation has been launched into the attack.

See part of the statement:

“Gallant security operatives this morning repelled an attack on the Omuma country home of the governor of Imo State, Sen Hope Uzodimma.

“At about 9am today, Saturday, April 24th, a group of hoodlums numbering about 15 driving in a motorcade of three vehicles accompanied by a tipper loaded with used tyres, stormed the country home of the governor in Omuma, Oru East LGA and attempted to burn down the house.

“However, vigilant security operatives attached to the Governor’s house successfully repelled the attack and consequently minimised the damage they had planned to unleash.

“In the crossfire that ensued a few casualties were recorded. Preliminary investigation suggests that the foiled attack may have been politically sponsored.

“The government has directed the relevant security agencies to expedite investigation on the incident and promptly apprehend the sponsors and their agents and bring them to justice.”
