Insecurity In Imo: All The Indigenes Are Culpable, Says Maurice Iwu by slivertongue: 2:21am On Jun 10
Maurice Iwu, former chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), says all indigenes of Imo are to blame for the security challenges in the state. 
In recent months, there have been attacks on security operatives and government property in Imo.

On May 30, the violence reached a crescendo when groups of gunmen unleashed four different attacks on strategic locations and government buildings in the state. 

Ahmed Gulak, a former aide of ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, was one of the victims of the violence. 

Reacting to the insecurity in the state, Iwu, an Imo indigene himself, said the blame for the security crisis should be put at the feet of all residents of Imo.

He said the silence and complicity of Imo indigenes allowed the insecurity to fester.

“Imo is a place where many people come to. No matter who’s causing the problem from outside, there must be some participation by Imo people for that to happen,” the former INEC chairman said in a chat with Arise TV on Wednesday.

“A situation where we are killing people that have come to protect us is stupid. We can’t be killing policemen that are here to protect us. We can’t have our young people being molested because of our own excesses. We Imolites are part of the cause. We can’t exonerate ourselves completely but yet we’re also part of Nigeria. 

“We’re guilty, all of us in Imo state, are guilty for allowing such things to happen. For not shouting early enough, we are all guilty.”

Iwu added that the situation is also a fallout of the high unemployment rate in the state.

“Right now, what is happening, we are having our own share of national insecurity. We’re also having some local players and the situation which is inherent anywhere you have a very low employment rate and poverty manifests. We don’t know what is the main trigger. But whatever is the trigger, if we don’t have our people who are ready to be used, then it would not happen,” he said.

The way he will be dragged here eh. Same people will drag him for election rigging meanwhile they support the party he favored


Imolites, your state depends on her nightlife and insecurity will ruin that. Don't let your hate for the supreme court appointee make you burn your state to the ground. His tenure will finish but not your state.

This is security matter, it is multifaceted. You can't look in one direction and conclude. Most citizens of the State can't be blamed for the situation on ground. If you understood election the way you did, releasing results and declaring a winner when people are still casting their ballots, then how will soundly understand security matter.

I have said it that Imo is now worse than Borno. All of imolites are part of the evils we are seeing in that state today. They see something bad and do nothing. I am happy they are massively arrested because you can't differentiate between the terrorists in their midst and the non terrorist

I think the people of imo are in support of the activities of these UGM.with the present architecture of the security formations,there is no security in this country and the govt has failed to restructure.
How do you post one abutu yaro as commissioner of police in the state just because you want to be in control as Hausa when u can post an indigen of the state who can commmunicate with them in dialogue and settle their grievances.

Truth. This is what I expected from the so called leaders of SE. We have to take responsibilities for us to solve our problems. Senator Abaribe the other day was saying the perpetrators are non igbos and are foreigners. If the leaders had condemned the actions of their children earlier, SE wouldn't have been in the sorry state it is presently. Imo state that was once peaceful and full of life has been reduced to mere "sambisa" out of hatred and bitterness, (Self destruct)

He only spoke to sound politically correct which is the greatest undoing of most southern politician until lately when some of them suddenly started developing ball.
For all the thousands of villagera and farmers that miyetti Allah via terrorist herdsmen has slaughtered,no single northern Fulani governor has opened his mouth to condemn the activities of the herdsmen but here is a man who should understand better saying rubbish against his own tribal people.

Chai, and the blame again goes to the victims...

They are culpable for ridding thier bushes of Fulani terrorists? Isn't that the reason the army and police came attacking Imo indigens? Y'all want them to die lie flies like is currently happening in Benue and Yoruba land... so you can come and give idiotic speeches?

Is this what you plan to say when they start attacking indigens of your own state? God will punish all those who support the oppression of the the poor.
