The Douglas Government House in Owerri, the Imo State capital, was on Sunday invaded by angry Imo youths who called the state governor, Hope Uzodinma, a thief.
Upon the governor’s arrival at the area, youths of Mmahu community repeatedly shouted: “Onye Oshi Vote, Onye Oshi Vote” (which means “stolen votes” in Igbo Language).
They threw bottles and sticks at the convoy and caused chaos in the state before the intervention of security operatives.
The violence was a result of the governor not attending the function he went for at the Ohaji area of the state.
Meanwhile, former Imo State Governor, Emeka Ihedioha, of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has spoken on the Supreme Court’s reaffirmation of Uzodinma as the duly elected governor.
The apex court, last Tuesday, dismissed Ihedioha’s application which urged it to review its earlier judgment in favour of Uzodinma.
