Sequel to the uproar that follow the beheading of two policemen in a place suspected to be one area in the South East part of the country, the five governors of the region have now collectively condemned the barbaric act.



It would be recalled that several videos have been trending on the way the two policemen when beheaded and their heads were used to played by some people suspected to be members of IPOB/ESN.

This was contained in a statement signed by the Governor of Ebonyi State and Chairman, South East Governors’ Forum, David Umahi after a virtual emergency meeting on Tuesday.

The statement read in part, “We condemn in strong terms the video clip and write-up we saw in some social and print media where two policemen were said to have been killed and their heads cut-off by youths who styled themselves as members of IPOB/ESN.

“We have resolved among ourselves to work with security agencies to determine the authenticity of this video/report and if found to be true, to apprehend the perpetrators by all possible means to face the law.

“We are aware of similar videos in the past and which when subjected to forensic review were found out to have happened outside Nigeria.

“We assure Nigerians especially the Police community that we will not rest until we have done justice to this matter.”

The governors warned all criminals killing people after styling themselves as IPOB and the Eastern Security Network to immediately stop.

They said, “We are aware that the insecurity and killings in South East have gone beyond IPOB/ESN as any criminal finds it easy to hide under such a name to commit crimes.

“We are determined to do everything to protect the lives and properties of our people. Our youths are advised to leverage on the various empowerment and agricultural programmes by our Governors to better their lives.

“On the issue of agitation by the youths, we are reviewing the work of Ohaneze Ndigbo committees on this matter and will soon call a larger stakeholders’ meeting to address such.

“All issues relating to the agitation and its fallout are better settled politically and on a negotiation table and we thank the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria – President Muhammadu Buhari GCFR for his consideration of a political solution to this problem. He has demonstrated that he is a good father who listens to his children.

“We urge our people to resume their Monday businesses as we assure them of adequate security.

“We thank all our security agencies for their commitment to securing the lives and properties of our people in the South East and we assure them of our continued support as they discharge their duties.”
