Insecurity in South East politically-motivated but not imported – Umahi

News
The governor’s comment came on the heels of rising insecurity in the region with an Anambra lawmaker Okechukwu Okoye being one of the latest casualties.
“In my state, there was a time that the insecurity was highly politically-motivated and the targets were Imo State, APC, and Ebonyi State the moment I defected,” he told Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
 “We did not have this large scale of insecurity until I defected.”
But for how President Muhammadu Buhari handled the challenge, he said the spate of insecurity could have been worse in Nigeria and the South East specifically.
“Well, you see, the security situation in the country, as I have always told people, that if we did not have the kind of President that is very humane and not vindictive, nobody knows where Nigeria would have been by now,” the APC presidential aspirant said.
“So, Buhari has helped us tremendously in the security of the South East.”
