Recall that on Saturday, April 24th at about 9am, a group of hoodlums numbering about 15 stormed the country home of the Gov Uzodinma in Omuma, Oru East LGA and attempted to burn down the house.

However, reacting to the incident, Imo State Govt has stated that the incident may be politically inspired.

In a statement released today,  Declan Emelumba,  the state Commissioner for information and Strategy, said:

“Gallant security operatives this morning repelled an attack on the Omuma country home of the governor of Imo State, Sen Hope Uzodimma.

At about 9am today, Saturday, April 24th, a group of hoodlums numbering about 15 driving in a motorcade of three vehicles accompanied by a tipper loaded with used tyres, stormed the country home of the governor in Omuma, Oru East LGA and attempted to burn down the house.

However, vigilant security operatives attached to the Governor’s house successfully repelled the attack and consequently minimised the damage they had planned to unleash.

In the crossfire that ensued a few casualties were recorded. Preliminary investigation suggests that the foiled attack may have been politically sponsored

The government has directed the relevant security agencies to expedite investigation on the incident and promptly apprehend the sponsors and their agents and bring them to justice.”
