We've Arrested Those Behind Imo INEC HQ Attack...DSS

The Department of State Services (DSS) on Wednesday said it has arrested two suspects involved in the attacks on the head office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Imo State.

The state director, Wilcox Idaminabo, said the agency has dislodged camps at Orsu from where the hoodlums launch the attacks.

He spoke in Owerri at a meeting with the Resident Electoral Commissioner, Prof Sylvia Uchenna Agu.

According to him, the raids led to the arrest of a leader and financier of the hoodlums in Orsu.

Idaminabo said the hoodlums have relocated to Aku/Ihube axis along the Okigwe expressway.

“We have continued to comb their camps and cells in Orsu, Njaba, Orlu and Okigwe.

“Our onslaught especially at Njaba led to the arrest of one Ejima who has been threatening to burn down the state and INEC offices.

“I am happy to announce that just last night (Tuesday) we apprehended him and he’s now in our custody.

“We also recovered a lot of arms, ammunition and charms from him,” the DSS chief said.
