Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, has said aggrieved politicians were behind Monday’s attacks in the state.

The governor spoke on Wednesday during a programme on Channels Television.

Gunmen had on Monday attacked the Owerri Correctional Prison and freed over 1800 inmates.

The hoodlums went ahead to raze the Imo State Police Command headquarters in Owerri, the state capital, destroying all vehicles parked within the command’s premises.

The attackers operated from 1:00am till 3:00am that morning and went away unhindered.

Speaking on the incident on Wednesday, Governor Uzodinma said, “What is important for Nigerians to know is the plot by a group of aggrieved politicians to destabilise the government of All Progressives Congress.

“I have done some thorough investigation and I have some credible leads as to those who are sponsoring these activities of these hoodlums.

“I don’t want to pre-empt the investigations of other security agencies but I can tell you we are working hard to ensure the sponsors of these dastardly acts are brought to book.”
