– Calls On Imo Leaders To Work With Imo Government To Resolve Security
The former Deputy Governor of Imo State Prince Eze Madumere has Bemoaned the continued wanton killings in the State, warning against its future hurting consequences.
Madumere regretted the assassination of All Progressives Congress chieftain, Alh. Ahmed Gulak on Imo soil describing the unfortunate incident as inhuman but very strange to the hospitable disposition of the people.
He called on the security agencies to do all within their powers to smoke out those who pulled the strings.
“I must commend Imo Police Command led by CP Abutu Yaro for their swift action in getting back at late Gulak’s assailants; I urge that they go further as directed by the Governor and other good spirited Nigerians to unveil those behind the dastardly acts.”
Madumere who just returned from the United States where he had travelled for education programme bitterly cried out over the killing of Imo youngsters, especially the students who were unjustly murdered by the security personnel, calling on the security top echelon to ask questions why such innocent future leaders should be killed in such manner.
While condemning the incessant attacks on security formations and other government facilities, he condemned the brutal killing of Imo Youths who were never found culpable for any crimes.
“I feel for the governor over the challenges he is passing through managing litany of both security and welfare of Imo people. I am worried that Imo State University school authority could not intervene to communicate to the security agencies for the protection of these young ones.
“I learnt of mothers, fathers, bread winners and other innocent persons who were cut down by alleged stray bullets. My thoughts are with their families.
“I have also heard about the affected families of MBAIKE, my thoughts are with them. I learnt of other innocent persons who were innocently arrested in the course of investigation and mistakenly paraded to the whole world as suspected criminal elements, I ask them to take it in good faith in so far as their lives are intact.
“The people have vouched for you and they have taken time to exonerate most of you of any crime. I thank Imo based Journalists for having risen to the occasion.
“We must join hands to bring this state of anarchy to an end. The Nigerian Police is not finding it easy with their operational bases being razed.
“I must encourage them never to be provoked into operating outside their code of conducts because whatever happens, security is to preserve lives and not desecrate it.
I suggest that our Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma work with the Police leadership as a matter of importance to look into what transpired in Ogbo-Osisi to unravel what must have warranted reported unguided and uncontrollable use of force against innocent traders.
“It’s time we stakeholders came together to find a way around our challenges. Time of fence sitting is over or else we all shall be doomed.
“We must close ranks and rally round our Governor, Senator Hope Uzodimma to resolve and solve our immediate problems before going out to jaw-jaw with other emissaries.
“Imo is our God given state it shall not spoil in own hands.”
