“Hon. Onyeagocha condemns in the strongest terms the continued bloodletting in the state and calls on the people of the state to always respect the dignity and sanctity of human life.

“He describes as disturbing, the unperturbed and complacent disposition of the state government on the escalating progression and wave of insecurity in the state and calls on Governor Hope Uzodimma to begin to take the responsibility of protecting lives and property of Imolites,” the statement reads.
