“In that presentation I came to a clear position that all the people that have been attacked in Imo State and are members of APC and those close to my government and the houses that have been burnt down belong to them.

 

“No member of the opposition party has been attacked or his house has been burnt down in Imo State. And this has continued to happened.

 

“You just mentioned former governor Ikedi Ohakim. Three days after he summoned the special dinner of Imo stakeholders encouraging them to support the government of APC, he was attacked and his security details killed.

 

“I presented this matter to the people of Imo State. Of late some arrests have been made. I challenge security agencies In Imo to make public as soon as possible the findings of the report and those behind the killings be named.”
