Governor Hope Uzodimma says the names of those sponsoring the unwarranted killings, kidnapping, and all forms of insecurity in Imo State will be made public in January 2022 during his the planned stakeholders meeting with leaders of thoughts and elders of the South-East state.

Governor Uzodimma disclosed this on Saturday in Owerri during his maiden meeting with newly inaugurated members of the state exco of the All Progressives Congress (APC) and some members of the party across the 27 local government areas of Imo State.

“All the people that were hired to kill our people, we have started picking all of them. As of now, we’ve picked 18 suspects. Some of them have confessed those who are paying them.

“We have gotten the bank account from where they have been transferring money to them and we have the evidence. When I will address Imo stakeholders on January 3, I will call their names one by one,” he said.

According to him, the decision to expose those behind the killings is part of the efforts of his administration to fight all forms of criminality in the state and safeguard the lives and property of all citizens.
