BY CHIDI NKWOPARA, OWERRI.
Imo State Governor, Chief Ikedi Ohakim, has appealed to Nigerians to resist the temptation of injecting violence in the current electoral process.
Ohakim, who made the appeal when he fielded questions from journalists in Owerri, was however irked with the killing of some loyalists of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Nwangele local council area.
He was also disturbed by the alleged importation of arms and ammonition by a serving member of the State House of Assembly.
“What will a law maker be doing with AK 47 rifles, rocket launhers and all the deadly weapons traced to him? If these weapons were successfully impounded, Imo State would have been on fire”, Ohakim said.
In his considered opinion, “nobody is above the law and Imo people are desirous to see that all those linked with the damnable act are traced and prosecuted according to the laws of the nation”.
Answering another question, the Governor said that “we must not destroy Imo, the peaceful disposition of the people and the successes we have collectively achieved because somebody or a group of people want to be in power”
