The House of Representatives has directed the Chief of Army Staff, Faruk Yahaya, and the Inspector General of Police, Usman Akali, to investigate the alleged invasion of five communities in Imo State.


The directive followed the adoption of a motion of urgent public importance moved by Emeka Chinedu, who stated that five communities, Ihitteafoukwu, Umu Okirika, Oparanadim, Mpam, and Ogbor Umeze in Ahiazu Mbaise LGA were invaded by security operatives on February 12.


Chinedu who said several persons in the communities were arrested by the security agents who came shooting sporadically, stressed that Nigerians are increasingly losing hope and confidence in the nations law enforcement agencies due to high-handedness, unethical conducts and total disregard for rule of law and engagements.


He added that delay in investigating matters of this nature may not only send complicating signals, but also be counterproductive in the long run.


Consequently, the house of representatives directed the army and the police chiefs to fish out the perpetrators of the act, find out reasons for the invasion, number of lives and properties destroyed, their offences, and finally, why communities that are not at war were razed without thinking of the unbearable effect of rendering the innocent homeless as well as depriving the living their breadwinners.
