Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma, has ordered the arrest and possible prosecution of persons or group of persons masquerading as members of a security taskforce on petroleum matters in the state.

The state Commissioner of Police, Abutu Yaro, has been mandated to arrest such persons or group of persons, and ensure that they face the full weight of the law “for claiming what they are not, including claiming to be working for the government.”

For the avoidance of doubt, Uzodimma has not constituted any such security taskforce, and views the activities of such persons or group involved as inimical to his vision, which includes to ensure that things are done properly and within the ambits of the law.

The governor reiterated that there is no such security taskforce on petroleum matters set up by him with terms of reference and job specifications handed over to the members, and therefore, views activities of persons or group of persons pretending to be working in that capacity as criminal.
