…Says nothing like ‘unknown gunmen’

GOVERNOR Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has blamed some persons in South East for the widespread violence in the region.

  The governor said this while reacting to the sit-at-home order of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

  According to Umahi, any shop that fails to open on Mondays will lose its right of occupancy.

  “I have therefore directed that any civil servant who is absent from work is automatically sacked and those absent in any of our construction sites would also be sacked. Any shop or stall in Ebonyi that does not open for business will lose its right of occupancy and I want this directive to be widely publicised. No one can wage war in the south-east and our people especially the youths should rise and condemn such acts. There is nothing like unknown gunmen as those killing and the ones being killed are citizens of the zone,” he said.

  Explaining that security personnel who have dedicated their lives to protect the people do not deserve to be killed, Umahi urged people in the region to speak against the rising cases of violence.
