The Nigeria Governors Forum (NGF) has condemned the attack on the country home of Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo state. Kayode Fayemi, the governor of Ekiti state and chairman of the forum, signed the statement released on Sunday, which describes the incident as taking criminality to reckless and irresponsible heights.

According to the NGF, those responsible for the attack must be mindful that they do not have the monopoly of violence. They say all hands must be on deck to apprehend the attackers who they say constitute a small league of persons trying to harm the corporate existence of the nation.

Over the weekend, assailants, numbering about 15 driving in a motorcade of three vehicles accompanied by a tipper loaded with used tyres, stormed Governor Uzodinma’s residence in Omuma, Oru East local government, Imo state, in an attempt to burn down the house.

They were, however, repelled by the security operatives attached to the governor’s house, but some vehicles parked on the premises were burnt.
