The Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF), has condemned Saturday’s fire that gutted the house of the Imo State Governor, Hope Uzodimma.

The NGF Chairman and Governor of Ekiti State, Dr Kayode Fayemi, in a statement he issued in Abuja on Sunday, described it as criminality taken too far.

It was reported that Uzodinma’s country home in Omuma, Oru East Local Government Area (LGA), of Imo, was on Saturday destroyed by fire.

Fayemi sympathised with Uzodinma and commiserated with all those who were injured, maimed or killed as a result of the incident.

He called on all good citizens to cooperate with security forces and the government. in the efforts to build a civil, safe and secure environment for the citizens.

“For those behind these crimes, they must understand that they do not have the monopoly of violence.

“This is taking criminality to reckless and irresponsible heights.

“All hands must be on deck to fish out the perpetrators of this dastardly act, as in our view, they constitute a small league of persons trying to harm the corporate existence of our beloved country, Nigeria.

“The mantra for every Nigerian at such a challenging time in our history must be how to forge peace and unity across the nation’s divides, and to shun violence and wanton destruction.

“Only then can we have a country to call our own,” Fayemi said.
