Igbo People Are The Unknown Gunmen In South-East, Not Fulani– Ebonyi Governor

The Governor of Nigeria’s Southeast state of Ebonyi, Dave Umahi says the unknown gunmen terrorising southeast Nigeria and killing people are from the region and not outsiders.

Some southeasters and the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have accused some governors in the region of sponsoring outsiders to terrorise the southeast.

While answering questions regarding the identities of the killers on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics, Umahi said the atrocities committed in the region were largely carried out by youths from there.

“So, when people say insecurity in the South-East is being imported, I do not buy that. Because I am a Governor, I do security reports.

We have arrested a number of these people, and it should be that they are about five or 14 per cent of those outside the South-East. If we have 90 per cent of our youths engaging in these things, you cannot say the South-East is being infiltrated.”
