Uzodinma stated this on Tuesday while speaking with State House correspondents after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa.

The governor stated that the reason for his visit was to discuss the insecurity issues in the state and the South-East with the President and to ask him for funding in tackling these security challenges.

He, however, submitted that the President has approved the funding and residents of the region will soon see an improvement in security.

Uzodinma noted that his state and the region have experienced an increase in crime following the escape of over 1,836 inmates from the Correctional facility in Owerri.

He said: “The prominent among the issues is just the increasing insecurity in the south-east. I know that despite the activities of the bandits and unknown gunmen, recall that the correctional facility in Owerri was broken into and over 1,836 inmates were released.

“Since that time, they’ve been on a rampage, committing all sorts of crimes and there is a need for us to really clean up the state.

“We asked for support with additional manpower and also, I asked for some kind of funding to support the security situation in Imo state and Mr President graciously approved.”

In other news, no fewer than seven persons have been reportedly killed while an unconfirmed number of persons were kidnapped as bandit terrorists took over the Shinkafi-Moriki-Kaura-Namoda Road in Zamfara State.

Reports obtained by Naija News have it that millions of goods, properties were razed while vehicles were also burnt by the assailants.
