Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, has revealed those sponsoring the attacks in the state.

According to him, aggrieved politicians sponsored the recent attack on security facilities in the state.

Governor Uzodinma made the allegation on Wednesday, April 7, while featuring on a television programme.

Recall that some gunmen had on Monday, April 5, attacked the federal prison in Owerri and freed hundreds of inmates. The attackers also razed the Imo State Police Command headquarters situated in Owerri and burnt all the vehicles parked at the command headquarters.

Speaking on the television programme, the Imo state governor blamed the attack on aggrieved politicians who wanted to destabilise his government and that of President Muhammadu Buhari.

He said: “What is important for Nigerians to know is the plot by a group of aggrieved politicians to destabilise the government of All Progressives Congress (APC).

“I have done some thorough investigation and I have some credible lead as to those who are sponsoring these activities of these hoodlums. “I don’t want to pre-empt the investigations of other security agencies but I can tell you we are working hard to ensure the sponsors of this dastardly acts must be brought to book.”

Meanwhile, the police have since accused members of the Eastern Security Network, the security arm of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), of being the masterminds of the attacks. However, the secessionist agitators have since denied being responsible for the attacks.
