Due to the spate of insecurity challenges that have befallen the Southeastern states in recent weeks, the governor of Ebonyi, Dave Umahi has stated those responsible for the atrocities.
Umahi stated that those behind the attacks are not foreigners, but the indigenes of the region. He added that the ones tasked with the responsibility to protect the interest of the Southeast as future leaders are behind the ruthless attacks.
This was contained in the statement made on Tuesday when he featured as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. He dared his people to come out and say the unknown gunmen are not unknown. He also stated that the people should stop confronting the security operatives who are trying to do their jobs. He continued that a lot of security operatives have lost their lives and these people have families. Finally, he pleaded that these security operatives are their brothers and sisters that are killed, and this needs to be stopped.
Recently, in Imo state, on Monday, gunmen burnt the Amandugba Divisional Police Headquarters in Isu Local Government. Sadly, this was the 4th attack in a week suffered by the state.
