Umahi Reveals Those Behind Killings, Unrest In South-East

Governor David Umahi

The Governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has discredited reports that those behind the killings and general insecurity in the South-East region were foreigners.

Umahi, who stated that he has firsthand security information as a sitting governor, revealed that his administration has arrested some of the people causing mayhem in the region.

While speaking as a guest on Channels TV on Monday, Umahi revealed that those behind the insecurity are Igbo youths.

He said, “When people tend to say the insecurity in the southeast is imported, I don’t buy that because I am a governor and get security reports. We have arrested a number of these people and it should be about five or ten per cent of the people outside the South East.

“So, you cannot say when you have up to 90 per cent of our youths that are engaged in this thing and you say we are being infiltrated by others.”
