Our party in Imo State believes in the rule of law, has respect for court orders/judgements, therefore we can never be caught empowering anyone or group to go against the law, Onuegbu said.

According to Onuegbu, “the Ekiti State LGA Court judgment is not applicable in Imo State untill same is affirmed by the Court sitting on that of the Imo State counterpart. APC and the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria believe in the rule of law, APC is not part of the gang-up by some despairing politicians to take over the Imo State LGA administration by force.

Imo State APC was never at any time informed, carried along or supported the event and the actions of the suspended LGA Chairmen. It is a total embarrassment to us the executive members of the party".

It will be racalled that in the said attempt to take over the LG offices on Monday, one life was lost in Isu LGA and many others injured across other LG Council areas.

Lastly, Onuegbu advised youths not to allow themselves to be used by politicians to halt peace and calmness in the state.
