Imo State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has called on Governor Hope Uzodinma to account for the lives lost in the state, both military and civilian.
But the governor accused the PDP of instigating the crisis in the state while advising it to desist from a fixated mindset. He also charged monarchs in the state’s autonomous communities to mop up arms from illegal possessors.
In another development, the police in Imo have arrested a suspected attacker of the Orji Police Station in Owerri.
Addressing journalists at the party’s secretariat yesterday, the Chairman, Chief Charles Ugwuh, regretted that the governor, as the Chief security officer in the state, remained in the office watching Imo residents being massacred.
He demanded Uzodinma to withdraw the military from Imo roads.
The PDP demanded to know from Uzodinma what he knew about the gruesome murder of a PDP youth leader in his Oru Local Council of Imo.
PDP added: “The Federal Government should, as a matter of urgency, set up a high-powered independent investigation into the gruesome murder of Ahmed Gulak in Imo State, and bring the culprits to justice.”
