  1. Why attacking the number one of the state on what basis? If your governor or any leaders in your State are doing something wrong or something that didn’t augur well with anyone in the state. Hooliganism, violence and riot causing is not the best way to express our grievances.

  2. To be attacking personalities such as governors, senators and others but they should have the love their citizens in their hearts because without that their will always be the pandemonium such like this in the state. They should give their workers their entitlement before leading to violent.

  3. What is really happening in Imo state.
    They should give peace a chance nah over there and allow this their new governor to settle down and work
    We all know the controversies surrounding his assumption of office as the governor of Imo state, but that is not the reason why he should be attacked every now and then
    Two wrongs can never make a right, so they should allow peace to reign so that the dividends of democracy can be given to the people of Imo
