Imo State governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma, has charged the nation’s security and intelligence agencies to expose the politicians allegedly sponsoring the current gale of banditry across the country by publishing their names.

Governor Uzodinma, who spoke to State House Correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja on Friday, alleged that the violent criminal activities sweeping through the country were being sponsored by opposition elements, with the intent to discredit the incumbent administration.

He also disclosed that about 50 suspects had been arrested in connection with the recent attacks on police and correctional facilities in the state, maintaining that the attacks were carried out by a mix of persons from within the state, other Southeast states, and non-Igbo.

According to him, those he alleged were sponsoring the criminal activities were using them to distract a focused government, accusing the sponsors of engaging in a diabolic version of politicking, which he described as anti-people.

He pointed out that the sort of issues that ought to have been the concern of the people, which he said are all about the provision of infrastructural and social amenities, was already being provided.

He, however, urged Nigerians not to allow the said opposition elements to destroy the unity and diversity of the country, which he described as a blessing from God and the nation’s unit strength.

He, however, charged all Nigerians to support the government and the security forces in the fight against banditry, explaining that the work of securing society is not restricted, but required all citizens and leadership at all levels.

The Governor said he was in at the Villa to brief the President on the issue of security in Imo State and to request federal assistance in the welfare and equipment of security agencies in the state.
