“They were throwing bottles and weapons at the bulletproof SUV of the governor,” a source, who witnessed the incident, told Vanguard.

Uzodinma came into office after a Supreme Court judgment on January 14, 2020 sacked Emeka Ihedioha of the Peoples Democratic Party as governor of Imo State.

Since that period, the state has witnessed all sorts of crisis with supporters of Uzodinma and Ihedioha breathing down each other’s throats.
