Imo PDP: Your Promise Of Free And Fair Elections A Mirage In Imo

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Imo State on Friday declared that President Muhammadu Buhari should understand that his pledge to give Nigerians free elections has turned out to be a mirage in Imo State.

Collins Opurozor, the PDP Publicity Secretary made this exposure in Owerri while briefing correspondents on the state of the nation, the third attack on CUPP spokesman Ikenga Ugochiyere’s country home, and the killings of innocent persons at his country home.

The opposition party appealed to the Chief of Army Staff, Inspector General of Police, and Director General of the State Security Service to intervene and take immediate action.

The PDP pointed out that on February 7, 2023, another primed attack — the third in less than two months — took place at the home of Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere, the party’s aspirant for the Ideato Federal Constituency.

PDP Publicity Secretary who also partook the viral video of Ikenga Ugochinyere’s attackers doing the attack said they must be speedily apprehended and held responsible for their crimes.

Ikenga Imo Ugochinyere’s convoy was attacked in Ideato as he was making his way home from Abuja, and he slightly missed death as AFLM had earlier reported.

Opurozor stated “We sent letters to the security services. Yet, to our surprise, no arrest has been made as of yet. We’re doubtful if the authorities ever launch an inquiry into that matter.

On January 14, 2023, Ikenga’s house in Umukegwu-Akokwa witnessed a bloody attack that left three persons, including his uncle, dead, about 32 vehicles burnt to ashes, and buildings levelled to the ground with explosive devices.

In the outcome of that, we wrote the security agencies again, took a protest to the Commissioner of Police in the State, and called off all political activities to draw attention to the dishonor and get the authorities to act.

But till this day, we aren’t cognizant if that attack, in which innocent Imo citizens were murdered, was ever investigated. And no arrest has been made. Not even a single statement has been issued by any of the security agencies in the state about that attack. ”

He further added For us as Imo PDP, it’s deeply disturbing that despite our demand for the arrest and prosecution of Chinasa Nwaneri, who earlier betrayed the intention of the APC-led regime of Senator Hope Uzodinma to attack Ikenga through telephone threats, the Federal Government and security agencies have never budged.

More disturbing is the fact that despite our calls for the disbandment of Ebubeagu security outfit, which has been implicated in most of the attacks in the State, nothing has been done by the Federal Gov’t and security agencies.
