The residence of Governor Hope Uzodimma in his hometown Omuma in Imo State has been set ablaze
At about 9 am today, Saturday, April 24, a group of hoodlums numbering about 15 driving in a motorcade of three vehicles accompanied by a tipper loaded with used tyres, stormed the country home of the Governor in Omuma, Oru East LGA, and attempted to burn down the house.
However, vigilant security operatives attached to the Governor’s house successfully repelled the attack and consequently minimised the damage they had planned to unleash.
In the crossfire that ensued, a few casualties were recorded. Preliminary investigation suggested that the foiled attack may have been politically sponsored.
The government has directed the relevant security agencies to expedite investigation on the incident and promptly apprehend the sponsors and their agents and bring them to justice.
