As Imo State gradually returns to its signature peaceful and hospitality status, government have continued to keep in touch with families who have been thrown into mourning as a result of casualties arising from the dust of the recent spate of insecurity. 

On June 3, 2021, the government  reached out to the daughter of Late Mrs. Gladys Uche Eleanya, a businesswoman who sold provision items at Hardel junction, Orji in Owerri and native of Nkporo in Ohafia L.G.A of Abia State. Unfortunately, she was hit by a stray bullet on 25 May, 2021 as bandits who came to attack the Orji Divisional Police Headquarters engaged security operatives in a gun duel.

In a related development, the children of Late Mrs. Glory Chinenye Nwokocha were in my office on invitation at the Imo State Government House, Owerri, June 5, 2021. Sadly, Late Mrs. Nwokocha was another victim of a stray bullet at the comfort of her home in the course of a shootout between the security operatives and hoodlums in Orlu on May 6, 2021.

Late Mrs. Nwokocha (Nee Orji) was an officer with the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) and hailed from Amizi, Olokoro in Umuahia South LGA of Abia State. She was a graduate of Imo State University. 

It was an emotional moment for us as we beheld the faces of our young ones who have been rendered motherless. Insecurity does no one any good. It could have been anyone and so we must all join hands with the government and security agencies to nip this ugly trend in the bud. 

My office has rendered some assistance and I will further partner with the Office of the Governor to support the victims\’ families in order to alleviate their pains. 

I urge us all to keep these families in our prayers and pray for the repose of the souls of the deceased. 

May their gentle souls rest in peace. Amen. 

Barr. (Mrs.) Chioma Uzodimma

First Lady, Imo State
