Amotekun: South East Ready To Set Up Own Security Outfit — Umahi
A security body in the design of the now controversial Amotekun in the south west is set to be inaugurated in the south east, the governor of Ebonyi state, Dave Umahi, has hinted.
Umahi said the creation of the outfit is at the end stage of planning to ensure it kicks off with effective operation.
Umahi, who chairs the south east governors’ forum, said this on Wednesday, January 29, when he met with Major General Lasisi Adegboye, the General Officer Commanding 82 Division of the Nigerian Army.
Daily Sun reports that Engineer Umahi lamented incessant attacks by suspected herdsmen on parts of the south east and said the security agency is partly created to tackle this and ensure peace in the zone.
Umahi said the zone’s governors had informed the country’s central authorities about the move to create the security agency.
