Labour Party has expressed concern on the level of insecurity in Imo State, saying it had dislocated several residents.

The party’s national vice chairman, South East, Chief Innocent Okeke, said council areas such as Oru East, Oru West, Oguta, Orlu, Okigwe, Orsu and Njaba had become ghost towns as a result of insecurity.

He said the situation could affect voters’ turnout in the forthcoming election.

He, therefore, urged the release of the leader of Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu from detention as ordered by the court, stressing that it would help to restore security in the region.

“This may bring about an end to the threat to the lives and property of people in Imo State and the wider South East region.

“The release of Nnamdi Kanu by the federal government is not only necessary to promote peace and unity in Nigeria, but is also a crucial step towards upholding the fundamental human rights of every Nigerian citizen.

“The government should, therefore, consider releasing Kanu, drop charges against him and engage in constructive dialogue with agitating groups to find a lasting solution to the country’s challenges,” he said.
