ANL News reports that the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF) has said that those who attacked the country home of Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodinma should be warned as they do not have the monopoly of violence.

The country home of Uzodinma was on Saturday attacked in Imo by gunmen, with two security officers killed and the house set on fire.

In a statement issued on Sunday by its Chairman and Ekiti State Governor, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, sympathized with Uzodinma and commiserated with all those who have been injured, maimed, or killed.

The governors called on all citizens to cooperate with the government in trying to build a safe, and secure environment for citizens.

“For those behind these crimes, they must understand that they do not have the monopoly of violence. This is taking criminality to reckless and irresponsible heights,” NGF said.

The Forum said all hands must be on deck to fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act as in “our view, they constitute a small league of persons trying to harm the corporate existence of our beloved country, Nigeria.”

The governors added that the mantra for every Nigerian at such a challenging time in the nation’s history must be how to forge peace and unity across the nation’s divides and to shun violence and wanton destruction.

“Only then can we have a country to call our own,” they said.
