The Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, has claimed that those who attacked the police headquarters and a correctional facility in the state, came from outside.
Uzodinma, speaking on Channels Television’s Politics Today on Wednesday, also claimed some aggrieved politicians were behind the attacks.
He said the hoodlums were hired from outside Imo State and only disguised to be members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
“What happened in Imo State last Monday is unbelievable. A group of hoodlums, of course sponsored by some known politicians in Imo State, decided to destroy public infrastructure and government facilities — and attacked a correctional centre facility and also attacked a police state headquarters.
“But what is important to take home is for Nigerian People to know of the plot by a group of aggrieved politicians to destabilize the government of APC.
“I have done some thorough investigation and I have a credible lead as to those who are sponsoring these activities of these hoodlums.
“We are working hard to ensure that the sponsors of these dastardly acts are brought to book,” Uzodimma said.
About 46 inmates who escaped from the Imo State Correctional Centre, have voluntarily returned to the facility.
Press recalls that unknown gunmen on Monday, attacked the correctional centre in Owerri, the state capital, set the facility ablaze and freed over 1,844 inmates.
