He said: “What happened in last Monday is unbelievable. A group of hoodlums, of course sponsored by some known politicians in Imo state, decided to destroy public infrastructure and government facilities — and attacked a correctional centre facility and also attacked a state headquarters.

“But what is important to take home is for Nigerians to know of the plot by a group of aggrieved politicians to destablise the government of APC. I have done some thorough investigation and I have a credible lead as to those who are sponsoring the activities of these hoodlums.

“We are working hard to ensure that the sponsors of these dastardly act must be brought to book.”

The governor also said members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) are not behind the attack.
