… Sues for peace amongst Imo politicians
… Commends S/E Governors over security outfit
One of the Chieftains of the All Progressives Party in Orlu and in Imo in general, Dr. Ikenna Ihezuo has condemned in its entirety, the recent attacks on Owerri correctional Centre and Imo State police command.
This is even as he sued for peace amongst the political leaders in the state.
In a release signed by the media team and made available to Lead, Ihezuo further commended the Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma as well as other South East Governors for reacting proactively against insecurity in the zone by floating the security outfit (Ebubeagu) last Sunday.
Imo State has been on the news over attacks by yet to be identified gunmen on the Owerri Correctional Centre and Imo State Police command which hitherto led to the escape of over 1000 inmates from the Correctional Centre.
Speaking on the dastardly act the Imo State Governor accused those he described as desperate aggrieved politicians of being responsible for the act and assured Imo people of their safety at all costs.
The action which received national condemnation however warranted the South East Governors coming together last Sunday to float what they termed Ebubeagu Security Outfit.
While condemning the said action, the founder and Financier of Ihezuo foundation, Barr. Ikenna Ihezuo called on the political leaders in the state to support the present administration in Imo who he described as God’s made.
Ihezuo, who contested for Orlu, Orsu and Oru-East Federal Constituency seat in the 2019 National Assembly election further called on the Inspector General of police to beef up security in Imo which according to him would go a long way in forestalling the repeat of such act in Imo.
