A group, the Global Association of Concerned Imo Youths (GACIY) has alleged that politicians in Imo State were behind recent attacks in the state, especially during Monday's cancelled sit-at-home order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
The group said the aim was to frustrate the Hope Uzodimma administration in the state and sell the notion that Imo people have rejected the state government.
The group, in a statement signed by its convener, Collins Ughalaa, cited police report following a recent raid on hoodlums hideout in Mgbuka Orlu, in the Orlu local government area of the state, in which the gunmen confessed to receiving directives from certain politicians from the state.
Part of the statement read: "On Sunday Sept 12, 2021 security agents, acting on credible intelligence, neutralised 3 gunmen and arrested 2 others in Ngbuka, Orlu LGA, Imo State.
"We note that of the five actors, 3 are aliens who journeyed from their home state of Ebonyi to unleash mayhem in Imo.
"This is troubling enough, but what follows is much more distressing. While these hoodlums presented as ESN members, GACIY understands that the two living suspects confessed upon interrogation to being members of a cult group.
"What is their goal? The suspects told police they simply receive and execute directives from a group of prominent persons in Imo whose aim is to achieve state-failure if only to frustrate Governor Hope Uzodimma. These politicians live in Abuja from where they carry out their nefarious and dastardly actions against Imolites.
"By using cult boys disguised as ESN agents, the sponsors project the narrative that violent separatism is welcome in Imo because the people have rejected government.
"Based on the advice of security sources, GACIY will withhold named sponsors of attacks in Imo State (for now) in oder to not compromise ongoing police investigations.
"Interestingly, the IPOB restated its cancellation of the Monday sit-at-home protest and distanced itself from these gangs of armed enforcers. But it should not have launched it in the first place. Sensing the fluid security situation, we cautioned against emotional reactions like the sit-at-home mandate. As predicted, the idea turned out a handy tool for the mafia; an exercise in self-defeat: fruitless, pointless, and bloody."
The group further urged Imo people to be weary of wicked politicians who want to destabilize the state having in mind to advance their political fortunes.
It commended the state government for standing up against insecurity and urged it to intensify its efforts at flushing out criminal elements from the state.
"Imolites should know that the politicians soaking the land in blood do not mean well for Imo. We raised the alarm a few weeks ago when we discovered that the PDP perfomed the nauseating cloning of ThisDay Newspaper just to promote lies against the person of Governor Hope Uzodimma. While some saw humour in that callous act, we saw a dangerous slide into anarchy. Today, evidence suggests politicians are cloning the ESN and God knows what else.
"We therefore call on the Imo State Government to.
1) sustain the offensive against criminals no matter their persuasion.
2) thoroughly investigate the coordination of these attacks with a view to bringing masterminds to justice.
3) continue to compensate and assuage victims of these attacks in order to restore their faith in government.
"GACIY meanwhile commends the Government and people of Imo for winning the war against insecurity. Unfortunately the battles are not yet over. Until those waging this assault against their fatherland are fully unmasked and prosecuted, let perpetual vigilance be the price for safety."
