It urged them to unravel the perpetrators, the reason for the invasion, the number of lives and property destroyed, among other things.

This followed the adoption of a motion by Hon. Chinedu Emeka (PDP, Imo) who said five communities in Ahiazu Mbaise/Ezinihitte Federal Constituency of Imo State namely, Ihitteafoukwu, Umu Okirika, Oparanadim, Mpam, and Ogbor Umeze were invaded by armed men suspected to security agents in the early hours of February 12.
