Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma, has expressed optimism in “flushing out unrepentant bad eggs” from the state.
He said this in a Facebook post after meeting Air Vice-Marshal Frank Okpara.
The PUNCH reports that there had been agitations for an Indigenous People of Biafra across South-East, including Imo State.
Nigerian officials had earlier extradited Nnamdi Kanu. The officials said that Nnamdi Kanu was brought back after he jumped bail and went on the run in 2017.
His family and lawyers say he was illegally arrested in June while in Kenya, tortured, and flown back to Nigeria.
Giving an update from the meeting, the governor said, ” In furtherance to our synergy with security agencies for an improved security network across the state and other sundry services, yesterday I had an interactive session with Air Vice Marshal Frank Okpara who came calling on an official visit.
“We deliberated on issues bordering on improved security of lives and properties in line with the most professional conduct and rules of engagement while flushing out every bad egg that chose to be unrepentant and I am optimistic of a sustained and improved security situation of our dear State.
“Prominent on our discussion is the establishment of Air Force Secondary School to complement on our existing educational institutions and offer a greater sense of belonging. I leveraged this visit to seek the full equipping of the Air Force Hospital in Owerri and ensuring the availability of Healthcare services to the host community and the state at large.”
