Imo Government Reacts As Herdsmen Gets 24-Hour Ultimatum To Leave The State 1

Imo State Government has reacted to the 24-hour ultimatum given to herdsmen to leaves the state, due to alleged destructive activities of straying cows.

A group, Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, led by one Goodluck Ibem reportedly issued the ultimatum following an alarm raised by the management of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri (FUTO), accusing herdmen of destroying their farmlands and crops.

However, the state government has dissociated itself from the ultimatum and described the move as an embarrassment to the people of the state, urging members of the public to disregard it.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Mr. Chibuike Onyeukwu, said the group lacks legitimacy to speak for the state.

“The attention of the Government of Imo State has been drawn to a report on some news media, credited to a group, which identified itself as Coalition of South-east Youth Leaders, giving herdsmen in the state 24 hours to quit.”

“The group, led by one Goodluck Ibem, relied on an alarm allegedly raised by the management of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri, accusing herdsmen of destroying their farm lands and crops, among other concerns.

“The Government of Imo State, under the leadership of Hon. Emeka Ihedioha, hereby dissociates itself and entire good people of the state from the said ultimatum to herdsmen in the state.

“Imo State Government is embarrassed by the development and has taken steps to prevent breakdown of law and order in the state.

“While efforts are being made to ensure that concerns raised by the management of the Federal University of Technology, Owerri are addressed, let it be on record that the Governor Emeka Ihedioha – led administration shall not tolerate a situation where individuals take the laws into their hands.

“For the avoidance of doubts, citizens of Imo State are very peaceful, hospitable and have always enjoyed cordial relationship with neighbours and strangers in the state.

“Imolites are at peace with residents and have no axe to grind with anyone living or doing business in the state, as long as such transactions do not in any way violate the laws of the land or constitute public nuisance.”

“The general public is therefore advised to disregard the report and go about their normal businesses without fear or favour.”

In other news, Imo State Government has seized a mansion belonging to the immediate past governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha, that he allegedly gave out his Ethiopian girlfriend.

The recovery team under the leadership of Governor Emeka Ihedioha stormed the property with men of the Nigeria Police and evacuated the said Ethiopian girlfriend.
