The Governor of Abia State, Dr. Okezie Ikpeazu has explained why the South East Governors’ Forum came up with the security outfit, Ebube Agu.
The Governor said the Southeast region launched its own joint security outfit codenamed Ebube Ago and these operatives would oversee and monitor the activities of vigilante groups in the South East.
“Today we have come together to synergise and see how best we can protect the lives and properties of citizens within this geopolitical zone,” he said.
Security situation across Nigeria as it is today is dynamic. We are just trying to respond to our peculiar circumstances in the southeast. Ebube Agu would be a security outfit both in name, purpose and action. It will be properly equipped. I want to assure you that all the states in the southeast already have various vigilante outfits.”
