Herdsmen should not return to Ebonyi for now, there is high tension – Governor Umahi


Governor David Umahi has asked herdsmen to stay away from Ebonyi state for now, as a result of the tension in the state.

Umahi gave the directive while briefing journalists at the end of the state executive council meeting on Tuesday, April 20.

The Ebonyi State Governor who condemned the killing of policemen and the burning of police stations in the South-East zone, directed the cattle owners to stay away from the state until peace is restored.

He said:

“We are killing policemen, we are burning police stations which means that southeast leaders should know that our problem is not just herdsmen. We want to put it on record that no herdsman is in Ebonyi state now.

We didn’t ask them to leave. They left on their own, which means they were privy to the attacks on Ebonyi state.

I have been begging the National leadership that with what is going on, no State Governor is in control of bandits, and because of the killings of the defenseless Ebonyi people, for the safety of them, they should not return now.

There is high tension. We have sent text messages to Myetti Allah that Ebonyi state is under tension and we would not want them to still stay until such a time that the State is safe.”
