Biafra Nations League, BNL has asked the Imo State Governor, Senator Hope Uzodinma to resign immediately following the attacks on the state police headquarters and the correctional centre.

The group said that the Governor found himself in the current situation after he invited the military to attack members of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, and Eastern Security Network, ESN.

Princewill Chimezie Richard, National Leader of the BNL made the claim while addressing newsmen in Owerri, the capital of Imo State on Monday.

According to him, many prisoners languishing in the correctional centres are innocent of the offences they were accused of.

He accused the police of congesting the correctional Centre without charging suspects to court, adding that the group will not condemn the attack.

The group called on the Governor of the State, Hope Uzodinma to, “resign for peace to reign” in the State.

“Uzodinma entered trouble when he invited the military to Orlu to massacre innocent people in the name of searching for IPOB/ESN.”

It was reported that unidentified hoodlums attacked the correctional centre on Monday morning, setting the prison on fire and freed hundreds of inmates.
