Governor David Umahi of Ebonyi State, on Wednesday, vowed Ebubeagu Security outfit in the south east region will not be disbanded.

Umahi, who is the Chairman of South East Governors’ Forum commended the south east governors for establishing the Ebubeagu Security outfit in their various states.

The governor, who made this known while inaugurating about six thousand (6000) Ebubeagu South East security, Ebonyi State command at the Pa Ngele Oruta township stadium, Abakaliki, on Wednesday, berated opposers of the formation of the Security outfit.

The indigenous people of Biafra, IPOB, in a statement signed by Emma Powerful had few days ago called on the governors of the region to shelve formation of Ebubeagu Security outfit, and adopt the Eastern security network, ESN to man the security of the region.

According to Umahi: “I want to commend so highly the south east governors forum for agreeing to form the south east Ebubeagu Security outfit. They have offered a wonderful cooperation with the Ohanaeze, religious leaders, political class, youths to the formation of Ebubeagu Security outfit.

“We the Governors of the South East Zone have extended olive branch to our youths who have been brainwashed who are in the bushes, we are committed to reintegrating them and making them useful members of the Society.

“Ebubeagu is not there to fight any legal or illegal group but to assist the Police to route out criminals, so that is their mandate.”
