Gov Uzodinma finally exposes sponsors of bandits, gives reason
Politicians have been accused by Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State as being responsible for the activities of bandits.
Uzodinma, made the claim on Friday, revealing that politicians are funding banditry to run down President Muhammadu Buhari’s government.
He disclosed this while addressing journalists after a closed-door meeting with Buhari at the State House in Abuja.
The governor also urged security operatives to publish the names of those sponsoring bandits in the country.
Uzodinma said, “What people are doing is to sponsor crisis to the extent that those funding bandits are politicians and I challenge and call on the security agencies to make their names available to the press because what they want to do is to distract a government that is focused”.
The most hit in the insecurity crises is the Northern part of the country, which recently experienced an upward surge in the activity of banditry.
The States affected more with recorded considerable casualties are Katsina, Niger, Zamfara and Kaduna.
Just on Friday, the Kaduna State government disclosed that three out of the students abducted from a private university in the state by bandits were discovered dead.
