The Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma has pleaded with hoodlums commonly known as Unknown Gunmen to have the fear of God and stop causing insecurity in the state.
Uzodinma made the appeal earlier in the week after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
VANTAGE NEWS had reported that Buhari summoned Uzodimma to Abuja shortly after the bombing of a house that belongs to the leader of Ohaneze Ndigbo, George Obiozor in the state.
Uzodimma, who revealed the discussion he had with Buhari during the meeting to BBC Igbo, said he pleaded with the President for help.
He said, “The president told me to come and brief him on all that was happening in not just Imo state but the entire Igbo land. We discussed actions to take to make the region better which is why I am pleading with my brothers and sisters, all our young men and women because I found out that there are some of them who don’t understand what we are doing.”
“Those who believe in tying charms around their waists and doing whatever they like, attacking police stations and killing people, I am pleading with you to stop.”
“I am appealing to them to stop the bloodshed and have the fear of God.”
“I pleaded with the President to help me and he said he would”.
