Chief Ijioma Okoro Nkemdirim, says a former Senator representing Abia North senatorial district, Mao Ohuabunwa was behind the insecurity in Ohafia Local Government Area of Abia State.
Nkemdirim, a community leader from Arochukwu alleged that Ohuabunwa was importing hoodlums from Rivers State and neighbouring clans to destabilise the peace in Ohafia and by extension Arochukwu Local Government Area.
He stated this on Thursday morning in a chat with journalists in Umuahia, noting that Rivers State style of politics won’t work in Abia North Senatorial District.
He also accused Ohuabunwa’s thugs of unleashing mayhem across Abia North Senatorial District, warning him not to set the state on fire in his desperation to return to the Senate in 2023.
“We have it in good authority that Mao Ohuabunwa is importing hoodlums, criminals and drug addicts into Ohafia to cause unrest and blame it on those opposing his ambition.
“Those hoodlums he imported are busy destroying posters of his opponents in Ohafia and its environs.
They destroyed billboards of High Chief Ikechi Emenike of APC , Dr Oreh Okuji of APGA, Sen Orji Uzor Kalu of APC and so many others at Old Soldier junction, Amaekpu, Ebem and Elu Ohafia.
“Ohuabunwa also tried to deceive the electorates using the insecurity in Isikwuato. Since that one failed, he is now importing thugs into Ohafia, Arochukwu and other parts of Abia North.
“The leaders of Ohafia should call Ohuabunwa to order. I’m even shocked that these Ohafia leaders are yet to openly condemn the actions of Ohuabunwa. Are they waiting for him to set Ohafia on fire before they act?,” he stated.
