Deputy Governor of Imo state, Prince Eze Madumere, has condemned the wanton violence that occurred in Amaike ward, Mbaitoli Local Government Area of the State yesterday.
The deputy governor, in a statement signed by his Special Assistant on Media, Uche Onwuchekwa, described the incident as most unfortunate.
Madumere, who is an aspirant in the Imo APC governorship primary election, while deploring the act that led to the burning of some vehicles belonging to another aspirant, said that violence must be eschewed if any society wishes to make progress.
He regretted that innocent people were also said to have sustained injuries during the violent incident.
He totally disassociated himself from the unfortunate incident, while calling on the security agencies to investigate the remote cause of the violent act and ensure that those behind the dastardly act are brought to book.
Madumere urged the people of Mbaitoli and the State in general to be law abiding.
