Insecurity: Has Hope Uzodinma returned to Abuja?

There are indications, that Senator Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, may have returned to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, barely three days after he returned to the state.

This was after Uzodinma was criticised for abandoning his state for almost six days, following rising cases of insecurity in Imo, which included an attack on his country home at Omuma.

Imo State have been battling with attacks by unknown gun men for almost a month, starting with the April 5th, 2021, attack on the Federal Correctional Facility in the state capital, which saw the release of over 1000 inmates.

There have almost been attacks on police and military formations by the gun men, with casualties recorded amongst security operatives and civilians.

Uzodinma, who had gone to Abuja before the attack, cancelled his return to the state, and after heavy criticism, returned to the state, amidst heavy security convoys.

In his May 1st address, Uzodinma accused aggrieved politicains, of sponsoring the unrest in the state, and assured that their names will be exposed soon.

The minister for interior, Rauf Aregbesola, revealed that Nigerians would be shocked by the outcome of the investigation, into the prison break.

It is believed Uzodinma may have returned to Abuja to continue working with Federal authorities, to unmask those behind the attacks.
