Igariwey, who is seeking reelection, however, called on Ebonyi state government led by David Umahi to immediately constitute a judicial panel of inquiry to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the mayhem in Afikpo South.

The House of Representatives member, Igariwey, made this known while speaking with newsmen at his hometown in Afikpo North LGA.

He urged the warring factions in the Ekoli-Edda in the local government which led to the mayhem to sheathe their swords and allow peace to reign.

It is not enough to detain one or two persons in what amounts to protective custody without getting to the root cause of the problem, he stressed.
