Politicians To Blame For Banditry In Nigeria-Governor Uzodimma




Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has urged intelligence agencies in Nigeria to publish names of politicians allegedly sponsoring banditry across the country.

Governor Uzodimma made the call during a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the presidential villa.

Speaking with journalists on Friday after the meeting, Governor Uzodimma alleged that the criminal activities happening across the country were being sponsored by opposition elements with the intent to discredit the incumbent administration.

Recently, there have been attacks on security agencies and other government facilities in the state. Earlier in the month, some gunmen attacked the federal prison and police command headquarters in Owerri, the state capital, and set ablaze vehicles packed in the vicinity. Some inmates in the prison were also set free.

“It’s not only CCTV; some of those arrested by security agencies, some of them are not from Imo State or the south-east. It was a combination of those within the state and those from outside the state. As of the last count, we arrested almost 40 to 50 people, who also made useful statements and confessed to the crime,” Uzodimma said.

“From 2015 till today, I thought what the problem would be is people saying that there’s no job creation, people are not feeding, salaries are not paid, infrastructure are going down, social interventions are not approved by government. These things are there, available — a passmark for the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.”
