Governor David Umahi has threatened to go after the parents of gunmen who have been carrying out attacks in Ebonyi state.
The Governor said this during the signing of the contract agreement for the construction of the second phase of the Abakaliki ring road at the governor’s office in Abakaliki on Wednesday October 6.
In a statement released by Umahi’s spokesperson Francis Nwaze, the Ebonyi state Governor stated that if what those behind the attack want is job, it will be provided for them. He also said traditional rulers, coordinators of development centres and council chairmen would be held accountable for any breach of peace in the state.
Umahi said “There will be no killings again or burning of houses in my state. If the problem is that they don’t have anything doing, bring them, I will find them something doing. But if they refuse and you fail to bring their names to me, you will pay the price.
