Hon Emma Okafor, one of the Aides to HRH, Eze Emma Okeke, the head of Imo Traditional Institution has warned all criminals in the State to vacate Imo or be dealt with in accordance with the law.
This is even as he appealed with HRM, Eze Samuel Agunwa Ohiri to shun the idea of attacking Eze Okeke in the media pointing out that Eze Okeke as a successful Business Mogul cum monarch never clamored for any appointment from the state Government but the Government of Uzodinma saw in him, the ability to control other Ezes as well as to restore the dignity of traditional Institution which previous administrations had bastardized appointed him.
Okafor disclosed this in Owerri while fielding questions from the Journalists over rampant criminal activities in Imo as well as rape cases.
On the issue of rape, Okafor who former Special Adviser to Governor on Political matters had held various positions in Imo opined that National Assembly should make rape a capital offense adding that with such, people would abstain from the act.
Okafor who used the forum to commend Uzodinma for finding Eze Okeke worthy of heading Imo traditional Institution, as well as community policing further, thanked the Traditional Rulers across the state for supporting Eze Okeke’s new position.
Recall that Imo State Governor Senator Hope Uzodinma had four weeks ago appointed Eze, Okeke, head of Imo Traditional Institution as well as coordinator Imo Community Policing.
The position which was greeted with various commendations by Imo people particularly the Ezes has been described as a round peg in a round hole.
