Imo Gov. Poll Gets Hotter As Lawmaker, Dibiagwu Inaugurates Over 5,000 Membership Structure For Incumbent Governor
Ex Niger Delta Militant Leader, Asari Dokubo, confirms working with the Government to fight insecurity in some parts of the country. This revelation supports earlier accusations made by journalist Chinonso Uba, who was arrested for criminal defamation. Uba alleged that the Imo Governor, Hope Uzodinma, contracted Dokubo's boys who are operating under the guise of the Ebubeagu security outfit. Dokubo has confirmed being contracted by several states, including Imo, Abia, Anambra, and others. He revealed that he operates a private military company and that his men are commended in the host states for their work.

The Imo State Governorship poll is heating up as a lawmaker, Dibiagwu, inaugurates over 5,000 membership structures in support of the incumbent Governor. This move comes at a time when accusations and revelations about the state government's involvement with ex Niger Delta Militant Leader, Asari Dokubo, are making headlines.

Recent developments have vindicated popular Imo broadcast journalist and human rights activist, Chinonso Uba, who was arrested a few weeks ago under allegations of criminal defamation. Uba had accused Governor Hope Uzodinma of contracting Asari Dokubo's boys to operate in Imo State under the disguise of the Ebubeagu security outfit.

In a viral video, Uba questioned the integrity and credibility of Asari Dokubo, referring to him as an anti-Igbo character who should not be leading the Ebubeagu security outfit in Imo and other Southeast states. His claims have now been confirmed by Dokubo himself.

During a recent appearance on a television program, Asari Dokubo disclosed that he is in contract with several states, including Imo, Abia, and Anambra. He revealed that he operates a private military company, and his men are working in these states to improve security conditions. Dokubo claimed that they have been commended for their good work.

The revelation of Asari Dokubo's involvement in state security has added fuel to the already hot Imo Governorship poll. It has raised questions about the transparency and intentions of the Imo State Government in dealing with the issue of insecurity.

With the upcoming elections, these revelations could impact the perception of the incumbent Governor and his administration. The allegations against Uzodinma's involvement with Dokubo's boys have not been formally addressed by the government, leaving room for speculation and criticism.

As the election campaigns continue, it is crucial for the Imo State Government to address these allegations and provide transparency regarding their contract with Asari Dokubo's private military company. The voters deserve to know the truth and assess the credibility and suitability of their leaders.

The involvement of a former militant leader in state security raises concerns about the long-term implications and potential consequences. It also highlights the challenges faced by the government in addressing insecurity and the need for effective strategies and partnerships.

Asari Dokubo's confirmation of his contract with multiple states brings to light the complex web of actors involved in tackling insecurity in Nigeria. It underscores the importance of comprehensive and well-coordinated efforts to ensure the safety and well-being of citizens across the country.

It remains to be seen how these revelations and allegations will impact the governorship poll in Imo State. However, it is clear that the issue of security and the involvement of Asari Dokubo's private military company have become crucial talking points in the political landscape of the state.
