The Governor of Imo State, Hope Uzodinma, has vowed to arrest and prosecute the gunmen that opened fire on traditional rulers in the Njaba Local Government Area of the state.

VANTAGE NEWS had reported that the gunmen stormed the venue where the monarchs were having stakeholders meeting on insecurity and opened fire, killing 3 and injuring many.

Reacting in a post on social media, Uzodinma commiserated with the people of Njaba.

He said, “The news of the attack on Traditional Rulers of Njaba Local Government Area by some hoodlums, which resulted into some casualties, came to me with a rude shock and this is a clear exhibition of wickedness and desecration of sacred stool.

“I commiserate with the people of Njaba over this incident as I vow on my honor to ensure that the perpetrators are brought to book. This new dimension to banditry would not be allowed to flourish on our soil.”
