The Imo State government has described as false reports that Governor Hope Uzodimma’s convoy was yesterday attacked by unknown gunmen along the Ngor Okpalla-Aba road.
The Chief Press Secretary/Media Adviser to the governor, Oguwike Nwachuku, who debunked the rumour in a statement, said that it was the handwork of mischief-makers
The statement reads: “Our attention has been drawn to a satanic fabrication by sworn enemies of Imo State and her performing governor, Sen. Hope Uzodimma, claiming that the governor’s convoy was attacked Saturday by gunmen along Ngor Okpala-Aba road.
“Those behind the satanic-driven falsehood and fake news also claimed that seven persons believed to be security aides on the said convoy died in the process and that five government aides to the governor sustained different injuries.
“The author of the wicked fabrication further claimed to have spoken to one of the security operatives on condition of anonymity.
For the avoidance of doubt, no such thing happened. Rather, what is at play is nothing, but orchestrated falsehood arising from extreme hallucination due to alliance and communication with the devil by the author.
“Governor Uzodimma’s convoy did not move an inch on Saturday because there was no need since His Excellency was busy in office, from morning till late in the evening, attending to numerous state matters that are dear to his heart and in the interest of the people.
