The Governor of Ebonyi State, Engineer David Nweze Umahi, has explained that the South East Security outfit codenamed ‘EBUBEAGU’ is not after the Eastern Security Network but focused on protecting Ebonyians and Ndigbo from criminalities.
Governor Umahi gave this clarification while presenting some operational vehicles procured by the State Government to the Security Agencies at Governor’s Lodge, new Government House, Ochoudo Centenary City, Abakaliki.
He clarified that the Ebubeagu Security outfit, which is yet to be launched, would have an encompassing uniform after launching it across the various States of the South East.
While explaining that contrary to speculation that unknown gunmen were after him, Governor Umahi said no one is after him. He noted that he has directed Security Agencies to brace up to forestall a reoccurrence of the kind of attack that was carried out recently at the Airport Project site by some criminals.
‘No criminal, no IPOB or ESN is after the Governor of Ebonyi State because the Governor of Ebonyi State has discharged his commitment to the people of Ebonyi State and what happened two days back was not the activity of ESN or IPOB, it is pure criminality, we have reinforced Security there and my directive is that if you near the Airport with the weapon you will not leave the Airport with the weapon and we are committed to doing that, enough should be enough.’ he concluded.
