Ex-Imo Deputy Governor urges Uzodimma to review security approach

· Metro

Former Deputy Governor of Imo State, Prince Eze Madumere has expressed dismay over the ceaseless killings in Orlu senatorial zone, calling for immediate independent investigations into the causes of the alleged deaths of innocent sons and daughters of the State.

The former Imo Deputy Governor called on Governor Uzodimma to review the modus operandi of the state government-sponsored “Ebubeagu” to avoid wiping out those who will sustain the existence of Imo as a state.

Prince Madumere made the call through a statement signed by his Media aide, Uche Onwuchekwa while reacting to the reported Sunday killings of 14 Otulu youths of Oru West Local Government Area of Imo State.

The former Deputy Governor insisted that securing Imo and warding away criminal elements does not include erasing the youthful human resources of the state.

He called for independent investigations into the root cause of the reports of the killing of innocent family members and other incidents of deaths shrouded in mystery.

The statement reads,” While we commend the Governor for his resolute stance in keeping Imo State safe, the sordid happenings and alleged killings directed at the youthful population of Imo West Senatorial zone must be condemned in its entirety.”

“We call for an independent investigation into some of the reported mysterious killings. Some families have been wiped out while others have been eternally injured. Most of these people are said to be innocent of any gangsterism, banditry and other criminal activities.

“I will suggest that “Forensic Experts” be deployed to resolve some of the killings.

“I have always recommended the deployment of a crisis resolution approach to resolving some of these security challenges. We have tried it in the past and we got great results. Carrot and stick is part of the strategies and everything is wrong if we continue to keep quiet just to be politically correct.”
