Imo Uncovered Fresh Plot By Politicians To Destabilize State

 The Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, said Imo State Government has uncovered fresh plot by politicians to sponsor further destabilization of the State.

He made this statement on Tuesday while addressing newsmen at the Government House Owerri.

According to Emelumba, “a former Governor of the State” and those he referred to as “other disgruntled politicians have voted a hefty N5b with which to trigger another round of security crisis in the state.”

Emelumba also alleged that a serving member of the House of Representatives from Imo State is coordinating the destabilization plot.

He said “Part of the plot is to raise a petition to the Inspector General of Police that security has collapsed in the State and that the government has been overwhelmed by the challenges. They are going to use the recent unfortunate fate of our two Royal Fathers from Njaba to anchor their campaign.”

Emelumba said after the petition, the politicians plan to commence a destructive campaign for the declaration of a state of emergency in Imo.

The Commissioner indicated that Governor Uzodimma was ever ready to discharge his constitutional responsibility of securing the lives and property of citizens of the state.

He said with the N5b at their disposal, they also plan to sponsor sundry protests and violence in Imo as a way of giving vent to their position as being real, followed by intensive national and International media propaganda.

The commissioner alleged that those conspiring to unleash the fresh violence on Imo consist of politicians who lost the 2019 election and have refused to let go.

Regretting that the perpetrators of the security breaches were dancing on the graves of innocent citizens, Emelumba wondered why they are still bent on causing more havoc in the state.

However, he warned: “Government was prepared to match them with legal force should they try to constitute themselves into security nuisance again.
