Ndigbo angry with South-East govs for inability to unveil Ebubeagu


When the governors of the South- West region set up Amotekun to tackle rising insecurity in their region, especially attacks by Fulani herders who went on rampage, killing, maiming, and raping as well as kidnapping for ransom, South-East people tasked their governors to emulate them to protect their region from the same Fulani herdsmen and other criminal elements who are daily killing, maiming, raping and kidnapping them. The governors reluctantly listened and promised to establish one.

To show semblance of seriousness, they set up a Security Committee, appointed a retired army general, Abel Obi Umahi, to head it. Incidentally, the chairman is an elder brother to the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi who is the chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum. They mandated the committee to nurture a strong regional security outfit for the zone. As the committee was working, the governors, in a meeting in Owerri, decided that the proposed outfit would be known as Ebubeagu.

The action of the governors was welcomed by the people of the zone who anxiously waited for it to be rolled out.
