Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo has berated sponsors of insecurity in the state, noting that the perpetrators are challenging God that created those they are killing.
According to Oguwike Nwachuku, his media adviser, the governor stated this while lamenting the killing of innocent citizens, burning of public and private property, police stations, and the killing of government officials.
Uzodimma, however, expressed optimism that the state will overcome its challenges.
The former lawmaker gave the assurance in his Easter message at the St. Rose of Lima Catholic Parish, Ozuh Omuma, Oru east LGA of the state.
According to him: “These are the activities of wicked politicians who are unrepentant and have continued to sponsor the killings of their fellow brothers,”
“They are challenging God because when you are after the creation of God, you are after God.
“My government is not weak, my government is only God-fearing. The only thing is that we hate to let blood.
“We cannot allow the killing of innocent citizens and the activities of non-state actors in the form of criminals and hoodlums to overtake the political space.”
