An Igbo Group in the Diaspora has described Ebube Agu as a Trojan horse and urged the South East Governors to throw their weight behind the Eastern Security Network to more effectively tackle the security challenges in that region.
The group condemned the alleged tacit support of the Federal Government towards banditry and terrorism in the nation.
In a statement signed by the Coordinator of the group, Ike Orji, and Secretary, Mr Matthew Ohanele it read: “While the Federal Government paid ransoms and negotiating with terrorists, Igbo men and women, who lost their lives, crops, property, raped and sexually assaulted, were left to cater for themselves, such lame and naive approach only emboldens the murderers and killers.
“We, the Igbo Union, frown on and condemn in totality the use of the military force by any governor in the South-East.
“The grass roots Ndigbo are in total support of the establishment of the Eastern Security Network to protect lives in Igbo land, and we urge the governors not to sabotage the security outfit for the zone.”
