Imo Attack: We have credible evidence leading to those who paid the hoodlums – Uzodinma
He stated this on Wednesday during an interview on Channels Television’s Politics Today, three days after gunmen stormed the Nigerian Correctional Services and the Police Headquarters in Imo State, freeing an unspecified number of prison inmates.
When asked if the tragic incident was a direct attack on his government, the governor replied in the affirmative.
“It is not only on my government, it is both on my government and the Federal Government. We have credible evidence leading to those who paid the hoodlums, where they met, and how they met. Security agencies are already working with this information,” he said.
“Some people are trying to sponsor a synchronise national crisis to bring the government of Muhammadu Buhari to disrepute, otherwise tell me why these things are happening at this time, particularly in Imo, APC state.
The gunmen who stormed the security agencies on April 5 set the facilities ablaze.
