… Says Imo is degenerating into a state of anarchy under Uzodimma.
The People’s Democratic Party (PDP) Candidate for Imo East Senatorial District, Hon Barr. Uche Onyeagocha has observed with consternation the recent closure of the Catholic-owned Radio Station in the State, Oziza 96.1 FM, by the National Broadcasting Corporation.
Hon. Onyeagocha noted that this latest action by the oppressive regime of Senator Hope Uzodimma after the gruesome slaughtering of fourteen innocent Imo youths at Otulu is provocative and disheartening.
“Regrettably, rather than appealing to God for self-cleansing, Senator Uzodimma further prevailed on the NBC to shutdown Oziza FM for uncovering the nefarious activities of his administration and exposing to the public, his slaughtering spree in Imo state particularly in Orlu zone using his Ebubeagu militia.
“The instigated closure of the Radio Station is nothing but a calculated ploy by Governor Uzodimma to gag the press and other democratic voices in the State.
“We condemn in strongest terms the draconian, strong-arm and headmasterist/bravado tactics of Senator Hope Uzodimma to blatantly stifle free speech and independence of the press in the State.
“We call on Imolites, the Catholic Community and people of good conscience to rise in solidarity against the further degeneration of Imo State into a state of lawlessness where democratic voices are gagged by the state Government”, Onyeagocha said.
