Uzodinma made the comment on Thursday when he inaugurated a security council at the grassroots level to proffer solutions to the state’s security challenges.
“The opposition party and some aggrieved members of our party who are hiring boys from neigbouring states to come in here, allow me, I will deal with them. I can assure you, leave that for me,” he said during the event.

“So, the people who threatened me that they will make Imo ungovernable before Imo becomes ungovernable, they will be ungovernable themselves.”
While calling on traditional rulers to help in the fight against insecurity, the Imo leader urged them to fish out criminals in their domains.
“I had advised that traditional rulers should warn these boys,” the governor added. “You should warn them because I am bringing a security strategy, known and unknown, to manage the security in Imo State.”
Uzodinma told the security council to go beyond organising vigilante groups in the state to gathering intelligence.
“This council must now go home and get us the names of every criminal in their communities,” he said. “You must collect intelligence for us and security agencies to work.”
