The Governor of Imo state, Hope Uzodinma, has again justified the recent military invasion of some parts of Orsu and Orlu local government areas of the state.
Uzodimma was responding to questions while speaking with State House correspondents shortly after a meeting he had with President Muhammadu Buhari, at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.
A reporter asked why the Governor decided to unleash the military on his people.
Uzodimma responded, “On the issue of bringing the military to Imo State, you will recall that during the EndSARS protests, a lot of properties were damaged in the state; police stations were burnt down, soldiers were killed, their rifles removed from them.
“Then I came here and pleaded with Mr President for his support and he sent additional support by sending in police and the military. That is where we are. It was on my invitation that the military came.”
