Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has accused desperate South-east politicians

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has accused desperate South-east politicians Umahi, who is the chairman of the South-East Governors Forum, stated this after a virtual meeting with the five governors of the region at the government house, Abakaliki.

According to the Ebonyi governor, the governors in the region are worried about the insecurity in the region.

“The governors are so worried about the killings and kidnappings that are going on by our people in the south-east, killing our own people and the security agencies,” Umahi said.

“The situation is being heightened by the activities of very desperate politicians, this time irrespective of party affiliations.

“There are so many desperate politicians in all the political parties that are so desperate for power and they have aligned with some bandits in the south-east to destabilise the nation.”

Umahi also dismissed a viral video making the rounds over the alleged expulsion of a Fulani pastoral community from an area in Ebonyi as fake.

He said: “Politicians, as we have intelligence gathering, went to put a voice and said it is the Igbos that are chasing away the herdsmen from Ebonyi state.

“Such a video went very wide and was causing panic in other parts of the country. That was very much uncalled for because we also have over 11 million of our people living in the north.
