The Governor said the state security agencies have identified those behind the repeated attacks in the state, adding that the government will ensure they face the full wrath of the law.
The Governor was addressing a congregation at the Government House Chapel Owerri on Sunday.
He said “the violence is caused by hoodlums, bandits, a section of IPOB members and aggrieved politicians from opposition parties who have decided to sponsor violence to derail the government but I can assure you, their days are numbered.
“My government will use anything within its powers to flush out criminals and criminal activities in the state. We will never negotiate with any criminal.
“So I advise all those involved in these heinous acts to desist or have themselves to blame because Imo state will no longer be a safe haven for them,” he added.
