Confirming the development to Vanguard, the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Dr. Obinna Duruji, also confirmed that those sacked from the health sector had equally returned home.
He said: “About 19 Imo indigenes sacked from BCA, Umuahia, have returned home. The same is also true of those from the health sector. They have formally reported to my office.”
He said government had not taken any retaliatory action against Abia indigenes working in the state, adding that it was still studying the incident critically.
