Ebonyi State Governor and Chairman of the South-East Governors’ Forum, David Umahi, has disclosed that the current killing in the South-East has led many of the Governors in shame.
David Umahi addressed the people of the state in Abakaliki, the state capital, when Vice President Yemi Osinbajo paid a condolence visit over the recent destruction of the police post.
According to him, the herdsmen are a big part of the canker in the State after they tried their best to protect them from harm.

In his words: “Even when the killings happened; very unprovoked killings, some people said they gave the governor of Ebonyi State 21 days to resign. We have been called all kinds of names and we feel ashamed that the same people we fight for day and night as governors and leaders of South-East to ensure the oneness of this country would know about attacks on Ebonyi State and they were asked to leave and they left, and we were slaughtered and killed.
“What face do we have then to face our people? We feel so ashamed to face our people. When this thing happened, Your Excellency, there was going to be very violent retaliation. But I thank God for the leaders of this state. I thank God for CAN, the youths and traditional rulers.
“We immediately called for a stakeholders’ meeting and reached an agreement and said for the interest of this country, there would be no retaliation. But we are happy that you (Osinbajo) have a document that has been given to you.
“We are not saying it shouldn’t be investigated, but that document is information that came from the phone of the murderers and that’s what the community printed out and handed over to you. We demand a proper investigation.”
