The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has told the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, who were behind the attack on the country home of Imo State governor, Hope Uzodinma, that they don’t have exclusive right to violence.
The gunmen killed six guards at Uzodimma’s home before setting the house ablaze. The police confirmed three dead.
NGF chairman and Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, in a statement, urged Nigerians to support security agencies to curb the increasing spate of insecurity in the country.
The statement reads: “The Nigeria Governors’ Forum deeply sympathises with Governor Uzodinma and commiserates with all those that have been injured, maimed or killed.
“The forum calls on all good citizens to cooperate with the nation’s security forces and the government in trying to build a civil, safe and secure environment for our citizens.
“For those behind these crimes, they must understand that they do not have the monopoly of violence. This is taking criminality to reckless and irresponsible heights.
“All hands must be on deck to fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act as in our view, they constitute a small league of persons trying to harm the corporate existence of our beloved country, Nigeria.”
