The Imo State Government on Monday described as wicked, the speculation that the wife of the Governor of the state, Chioma Uzodinma, was abducted.
According to The Punch newspaper, the state Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Declan Emelumba, said that the sponsors of the rumour are “devils’ agents.”
Emelumba said that those who do not wish the state well were the same people behind the abduction rumour.
Reacting to the abduction rumour or the governor’s wife, the commissioner said, “There is no truth in that. Those who are behind the rumour are wicked and are devil’s agents. They are the ones wishing the state bad.”
Imo State has witnessed a high rate of criminality including barbaric killings and kidnappings in the last few months.
