Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi, has debunked the news making the rounds that an alleged “suicide bomber” died in the state on Tuesday.
Umahi while speaking as a Special Guest of Honour, at a football match organised to mark his Annual School Sports at the Government Secondary School Okposi, Ebonyi South zone stated the detonation was a “self-inflicted accident a Mobile Policeman who is not a Fulani man”.
The governor said;”It is very unfortunate that our people have taken so much into social media.
“I have received a lot of calls that there is a Fulani Herdsman suicide bomber in Afikpo and this is really unfortunate. It is an accident that happened, self-inflicted accident by a Mobile Policeman who is not a Fulani man.
Umahi urged the state’s residents to go about their normal businesses peacefully.
Also speaking on the South East regional security outfit, Ebube-Agu, Governor Umahi pointed out that “Ebubeagu has come to stay.
“Ebubeagu is backed by law which is a lawful demand by the good people of the South East and it’s very unfortunate that some people believe that everything is politics.
“If you are law-abiding and you are in the state, you will enjoy the protection of the conventional security and the Ebube-Agu Security”.
“Ebube-Agu can arrest by the reason of the law. Ebube-Agu has the powers to arrest and send the person to the Police to be prosecuted”.
He however urged the youths to eschew violence and criminality.
“Finally, let me appeal to our youths. You have no reason to go into crimes; you have no reason to be brainwashed.
“We have made contingent provision for our youths empowerment. If you still engage in any form of criminality, you will regret it.”
Commenting on the Sit-at-Home Order by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), slated to hold on the 29th and 30th May, 2021, Umahi reminded the people that “The Biafra we need is this development that we are doing.
“Anywhere the South East people are being marginalized, we are articulating them and we are taking them to the national.”
