By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to the Senate of the Nigerian Senate, Ahmad Lawan, the recent attacks on some police formations and correctional facilities in Imo State, were perpetrated by the enemies of the people.
Speaking on Friday in Owerri, the state capital, where he commissioned a completed road project by the Governor Hope Uzodinma administration, Lawan alleged that the chief purpose of the attackers was to distract the state government and federal governments from performing their principal administrative duties.
“We have been experiencing insecurity recently, especially in Imo State – the jailbreak, burning of Police Headquarters, and so on and so forth.
“When a government programme or project is vandalised, when a government institution is vandalised and burnt, those doing so are enemies of the people”.
Lawan was accompanied to Imo by some of his colleagues in the Senate, including Jibrin Barau, Biobarakuma Degi, Halliru Jika, Sani Musa, and Opeyemi Bamidele.
