Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has vowed to reveal the identities of sponsors of insecurity in the state on January 3rd, 2022.
He said 18 suspects arrested by security agencies have named their sponsors.
He promised to reveal their identities and roles at a stakeholder’s meeting.
The governor spoke in Owerri at the weekend while addressing elected officials of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state.
He said: “My government will do all within its powers to ensure that Imo State is safe and that anyone working to destabilise the system or encourage criminality, no matter how highly placed, would be made to face the full wrath of the law.
“Two councillors were recently killed and those who killed them have been arrested and they have owned up to the crime.
“Eighteen persons are now in custody in connection with different dimensions of crimes against the people.
“They have also given dependable evidence about their sponsors.
“Don’t be intimidated. So long as I remain governor in this state, they will face the law.
“We have evidence of those who are behind the insecurity based on information from the suspects.
“On January 3, 2022, when I will hold Imo stakeholders meeting, I will reel out their names one after the other with the evidence of their role.”
