Owerri - A former governor of Imo, Chief Ikedi Ohakim, on Tuesday, blamed the recent kidnappings in the state on unemployment.
Ohakim said this at the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) rally at Isiala, Mbano Local Government Area of the state.
He explained that insecurity in the state was as a result of the sack of 10,000 youths employed into the civil service by his administration.
Okorocha’s administration has disabled the state by the dismissal of 10,000 graduates employed by his administration.
"When 10 000 youths are unemployed, the next thing is to turn to crime," he said.
The former governor also urged Okorocha to probe him, saying that he was not averse to probe.
