A group, Global Association of Concerned Imo Youths (GACIY),has accused some members of the People’s Democratic Party, PDP in Imo State of raising false alarm which threw Owerri into stampede on Monday.

GACIY disclosed this in a release issued by its convener, Collins Ughalaa and availed Daily Nigerian Horn.

The release read:

“We resolutely condemn the false alarm raised by elements of Imo PDP which threw Owerri into stampede, mass hysteria, and panic around midday Monday Oct 4, 2021.

“By spreading fake news that unknown gunmen had staged an attack in Owerri, the PDP put our innocent mothers, sons, and daughters in harm’s way as each one scampered for dear life. In the name of opposition, the PDP charged the atmosphere not minding the adverse effect on our people who are still healing from the trauma of recent security breaches in the state.

“We wonder why a party which, until recently, governed our dear state will openly display such ghoulish admiration for unknown gunmen, killers, and bandits. Obviously, this is politics taken too far.

“Nothing defines cyber terrorism than the PDP using the cyber space to terrorise the people of the State. This is why we regard the PDP as a blood sucking group of bitter people masquerading as the opposition.

Until the PDP rescues herself from the apron string of the deposed governor Emeka Ihedioha, and concentrates on her core values, the PDP will continue to journey in the abyss.

“Although we are thankful that the Imo State Police Command and other security agencies promptly dispelled this rumour and reassured Imo people of security, we nonetheless urge the Police to fish out the masterminds and perpetrators of this new psychological warfare against our people.

“Further, we encourage our people to not be dismayed by the antics of our enemies, but continue to pray for enduring peace and prosperity in our dear state, Imo”.
