The immediate past Governor of Imo State and PDP chieftain, Dr. Ikedi Ohakim says that those who indulge in electoral malpractices are terrorists, declaring that what happened in Okigwe zone during the last rerun elections held across three LGAs and one Senatorial zone of Imo North is not an election, but a terrorist attack.
Writing on his verified Facebook wall, the former Governor referred to the United States Code of Federal Regulations which defines terrorism as; “The unlawful use of violence and intimidation against a system, persons or property including ballot box snatching in elections, procurement of official and unofficial security personnel, procurement of electoral and judicial officials, procurement of gifted writers and media in furtherance of political and social objectives”.
The former Governor pointedly accused an unnamed politician of complicity in the rape of democracy which took place in Okigwe zone, Isiala Mbano, and across Imo State, describing the individual as a; “reprobate politician, terror dealer”.
Dr. Ikedi Ohakim assured that the jubilation of those celebrating with “Typhoid infested election results will soon evaporate”.
The former Governor and respected economist insists that the candidates of his Party, won the elections but were shortchanged by this unnamed terrorist and “his merchants of death”.
