Governor Hope Uzodinma has been accused of using hired mercenaries from an ex-Militant leader, Asari Dokubo, to kill and terrorize residents of Imo State.
Popular On-Air-Personality, Chinonso Ubah, aka “Nonso Nkwa” made the accusation in a now-viral video.
Speaking in Igbo, Nkwa said: “The Ebubeagu boys in Imo State are Asari Dokubo’s Boys. The People of Imo don’t know, Asari and this Ebubeagu boys move around the state but when he comes in no one will know.”
“Asari Dokubo recruited the Ebubeagu boys Hope Uzodinma is using to work. Uzodinma and Dokubo have an agreement.”
“Every Ebubeagu member in Imo state is his(Asari) boy. If Asari does not like the Igbos, his boys too will not like the Igbos, look at what is happening in Agwa, Orlu, Ohaji Egbema and Izombe. It’s the Ebubeagu boys that are causing this Havoc and they hate Igbos.”
“They are using this opportunity now that they have an agreement with Imo state government to burn the houses and wasting lives of Imo People.”
“The government of Hope Uzodinma is using Ebubeagu, which is made up of Asari Dokubo’s boys who hate Igbos to protect Imo People? If your governor can go to an Enemy of Ndi Igbo to seek his help for security should tell you where we are now…”.
