Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has asserted that those responsible for the rising security challenges in the South East are not foreigners but young men and women from the South-Eastern region.
The governor made this assertion yesterday when he featured as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunrise Daily. monitored by the Eastern Updates. He said; ‘When you have infested firewood, the ants will definitely come over there’
He went further to add that, ‘Let our people come out to speak out that the unknown gunmen are not really unknown gunmen, they are our young men and women who will defend our land tomorrow; they should stop giving themselves to be killed’
Governor Umahi, however, commended the security agencies in Ebonyi for their conduct in the face of provocation and attacks on government facilities.
He noted that the security agencies have yet to go after the perpetrators, as they were tied with protecting the facilities from further attacks.
