PDP Alleges Governor Uzodinma’s Involvement in Recruiting Non-State Actors for Security Roles in Imo State

…By Lola Smith for TDPel Media. The People Democratic Party (PDP) has leveled accusations against Governor Hope Uzodinma of Imo State, alleging his recruitment of non-state actors to assume the constitutional responsibilities of security agencies within the state.


The opposition party contends that the governor’s failure to address the escalating insecurity in Imo State renders him unfit for re-election.

These assertions were made by Gozie Nwachukwu, the spokesperson for the Imo PDP 2023 Gubernatorial campaign, during a press conference held in Owerri, the state capital.

Alleged Recruitment of Non-State Actors and Deteriorating Security:

Nwachukwu stated that the purported recruitment of non-state actors by the Uzodinma administration might have contributed to the dire security situation in the state.


Expressing concern over the escalating violence, he criticized the governor’s apparent absence from action while insecurity continues to plague Imo State.

Nwachukwu noted that Uzodinma had relocated to Abuja and neglected his constitutional duty of ensuring the safety and protection of the lives and property of Imo people.

The spokesperson further highlighted the recent occurrence of shootings in various parts of the state, emphasizing the urgency of the situation.

Call for Independent Investigation and Presidential Intervention:

In light of the concerning situation, Nwachukwu appealed to President Bola Tinubu to establish an independent investigation into the rampant killings within the state.

He urged the President, acting as the Commander-in-Chief, to promptly assemble an impartial and discreet fact-finding team, devoid of any influence from Hope Uzodinma and his associates.


The PDP representative underscored the importance of an unbiased investigation to address the wanton loss of lives and property in Imo State.

PDP Gubernatorial Candidate’s Sympathy:

Nwachukwu conveyed heartfelt condolences from the PDP’s Gubernatorial Candidate, Senator Samuel Nnaemeka Anyanwu, to those who have suffered immeasurable and devastating losses due to the collapsed security architecture in the state.

The party expressed solidarity with the victims and emphasized the need for swift action to restore peace and security in Imo State.
