In a statement by Senate Special Assistant for Media, Mr. Ola Awoniyi, Lawan said those responsible for the attacks were enemies of the people and the country.
Lawan said this on Friday in Owerri during the Inauguration A road project completed by Imo Governor Hope Uzodinma.
He said the attackers’ goal is likely to be to distract the Imo government or even the federal government.
The street, which was named after a former Senate President, the late chief Evan Enwerem, was one of the infrastructure projects that were inaugurated on the occasion of Uzodinma’s year-long inauguration.
Lawan advised people to take over the projects and to use them well and protect them as their projects.
“We have been experiencing insecurity lately, especially in Imo – the prison break, the burning of the police headquarters and so on.
” This can be attempts from enemies of the people to distract this government or the federal government of Nigeria.
“When a government program or project is destroyed, when a government institution is destroyed and burned, those who do so are enemies of the People.
“Our security agencies need more resources to ensure that we are all protected and that our lives and property are safe.
