Ebonyi indigenes urge mop up of illegal arms
The Association of Ebonyi State Indigenes in the Diaspora (AESID) has called on security agencies to mop up illegally acquired arms and ammunition from the polity.
The group said the appeal followed information that some highly placed politicians were allegedly distributing deadly weapons to political thugs to cause mayhem in the state.
AESID’s President, Paschal Oluchukwu, in a statement yesterday, urged security personnel to protect innocent citizens across board.
He said: “We urge the new IGP to kindly investigate these allegations and not only recover the arms from the unauthorised citizens, but also adequately protect lives and businesses.
“We therefore urge the security agencies in the state to act professionally and protect all citizens of the state from the common internal and external aggressors cum attackers.”
The agitated indigenes charged the Governor David Umahi administration to rise up to the occasion.
