DSS Arrests Masterminds Allegedly Behind Arson Attacks In Imo, Recovers Arms

Two prime suspects, who are allegedly behind the arson attacks in Imo State, have been arrested by operatives of the Department of State Security, DSS.

This was disclosed on Tuesday in Owerri, during a stakeholders meeting, organized by the State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Professor Sylvia Uchenna Agu, the DSS Director (names withheld).

He said, “It gives me the joy to announce that two of the people who have been troubling the state are now in our custody.

“The first suspect, who operates with the name, Engr. Mike Ahize, and founder of the criminal camp in the Orsu local government area of the state, has been apprehended.

“His criminal camp is located somewhere at the Imo/Anambra border. This camp thrived for this long, as a result of the difficult terrain. Today, he has been arrested and cooling his heels in our custody.

“Again, just yesterday night (Tuesday), we also nabbed one Ejima, who says he is bent on burning down all facilities of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in the state.

“He has been boasting that the general elections will not hold anywhere in the state. Let me also inform you that in the early hours of today (yesterday), the suspect led our operatives to his armoury, where we recovered somes arms and ammunition.

“There is no doubt that the nation is passing through difficult times. What is going on is sheer criminality and that is why all the security agencies are working in synergy, to tackle the issue.
“We are talking about the forthcoming general elections, but that will only be if we have a nation to call our own.”
