Imo killings: NNPP chieftain calls for Tinubu’s intervention 

The Imo State governorship candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party in the November election, Ben Odunzeh has commiserated with the families of traders who lost their lives and goods following the attack on Akwakuma in Owerri and Amaraku market in Isiala Mbano Local Government Area by gunmen on Friday night.

He also called on President Tinubu to intervene and save Imo State from the serial killings.

While describing the attack as barbaric and unacceptable, he called on security agencies in the state to “unravel those behind the attacks and immediately bring them to face the wrath of the law.”

Odunzeh in a statement by his media office on Saturday decried the spate of wanton killings in the state and reiterated his resolve to bring all forms of insecurity to an end when he becomes the governor.

He called on the Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma to brace up and safeguard the lives of Imolites, saying he has the constitutional obligation to protect lives and properties.

“I’m sad. My heart is heavy with what our state has turned into. It is disheartening that our Imo has become an epicenter for nefarious activities where lives are no longer valued.

“I never envisaged a day like this in our history. What a sad commentary! The governor must brace up and safeguard the lives and properties of Ndi-Imo because he has that constitutional obligation.

“I send my sincere sympathies to the families of those affected by this attack, may God grant quick recovery to those injured”, he said.

He called on President Bola Tinubu to “intervene and bring the ravaging insecurity in Imo to end once and for all.”
