Rochas Okorocha, former governor of Imo state and senator representing Imo West Senatorial District, has denounced the latest attacks in Imo state.

Okorocha said in Jos on Thursday, April 8, that the recent assault on the police headquarters and Correctional Centres in Imo State, as well as the ongoing herdsmen crisis, banditry, Boko Haram, and kidnappings, was all the result of hunger and inequality.

 

He stated that time has come for political leaders to tell themselves the truth and address this ugly situation, to help men and women of the Armed Forces and the police who are currently fighting the symptoms and not the disease.

 

Okorocha said;

 

“The recent attack on the police headquarters, the Correctional Centres in Imo State, the unending herdsmen crisis and banditry, Boko Haram, kidnappings, these are all products of poverty and injustice.

“Time has come for we as political leaders to tell ourselves the truth and address this ugly situation and help our men and women of the Armed Forces and the police who are currently fighting the symptoms and not the disease. Something must be done urgently too.”
