Ebonyi: Umahi Exposes Those Carrying Out Shootings In The Name Of IPOB


Umahi Sacks Aides 48 Hours After Governorship Election

Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State has accused thugs of a yet-to-be named Senator, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and some officers of the Nigeria Police of carrying out shootings in his state.

Naija News reports that the governor made this known while speaking to a congregation during church service at a chapel in the Government House Abakiliki.

He stated that the outlawed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) was not responsible for the shooting that occurred during the visit of President Muhammadu Buhari.

Umahi said there has been shooting around the Ebonyi State PDP Secretariat for the past two weeks, threatening to shut down the building if there is another shooting.

He said, “There were even questions as to why there was no announcement of IPOB about the President’s coming, the answer is I don’t know, refer the matter to God, everything worked out perfectly well and that could only come through fasting and prayers.

“There was a report of shooting; the shooting was done by the PDP people, shooting at the Secretariat and for the past two weeks, they have been shooting in that area, is that how they want to contest and win elections in Ebonyi State?”

“When the Police Stations were attacked in Ezza South and North, the police guns were missing, when the shooting was happening and one of the thugs were arrested, with a bus of a Senator painted in PDP colour, with his name boldly written on it, do you know what was discovered, among other guns and ammunition was the police gun.

“How can you come to a State and you will be shooting as if there is no Government, and you are carrying police people and then your thugs are shooting, it won’t happen again”, he added.
