Indian Hemp (marijuana) smokers and sellers in Imo State are in trouble, following the order by Governor Hope Uzodimma to security personnel to fish them out.

“Henceforth any landlord who allows his property to be used by criminals, even smokers of weeds and other hard drugs will be answerable to the law.” Uzodimma stated at the presentation of 100 additional patrol vehicles fitted with security gadgets to security agencies at Heros’ Square, Owerri.

He said henceforth, Imo State will be a no go area for criminals, stressing that the donation was an eloquent testimony to the administration’s resolve to confront and combat criminality.

 “From now onwards, Imo State shall be a no go area for criminals,” Governor Uzodimma said and charged the security agencies to “take the war to the door steps of all criminals, their kindred, their hamlets and their hide-outs,”just as he  insisted that “they must be smoked out and flushed out of Imo State.”

Appreciating the Governor on behalf of the security agencies in Imo State, the head of Operation Search and Flush who is also the commandant 34 Artillery Brigade Obinze,  Brig. Gen. Raymond Utshaha, thanked the Governor for the wonderful gesture and assured that the vehicles and equipment will be put to good use in the fight against crime in Imo State.
