Insecurity: We Are Fighting Two Wars In South East, Says Umahi


The Chairman of South East Governor’s Forum and Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has said individuals of the zone are battling two separate wars.

Umahi made this known on Saturday in Abakiliki on the seventh day which denoted the last day of the fasting and supplicating announced by the Christians Association Of Nigerian (CAN) Ebonyi State section expected to look for the substance of God towards settling the security challenges in the state and country at large.

He said the two conflicts in the east are the killings of security operatives by the yet to be recognized group and the activities of the Indigenous People of Biafra (lPOB).

The governor stressed that the actors behind the disorder confronting security operatives captured the ‘geninue’ agenda of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).

Umahi, who distanced himself from the secession course of IPOB, said: “So we have brought war against ourselves, now it is two different agenda that are being fought for in the south-east and our people are pretending, we have brought war on ourselves.
“The people that started this thing no longer has the control.

“Again, why are we killing security agencies? Why are we burning down police stations?

“The genuine agitations minus secession which started by a group of people has been hijacked.

“And if we don’t know, most of the security people that they are killing are from South East.

“And we say that they are being perpetrated from outside, [that]is not true.

“It is our people that are burning down the police stations, killing security agencies, snatching their guns, doing armed robbery and cultism.”
