Northern communities in Enugu pledge peaceful co-existence
Ortom wants killer of security aide arrested
Newly elected Sarekin Hausawa of Enugu State, Idris Ardo yesterday assured that his priority would be to promote peaceful co-existence between the northern community and their Igbo hosts.
Briefing newsmen in Enugu, Ardo, who is the son of the immediate past Sarekin Hausawa of the state, Haruna Sule, Ado said no meaningful development could be achieved except in an atmosphere of peace and harmony.
He also called upon the northern community and the entire people of the state to give maximum support to Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi’s government to enable him succeed and provide democratic dividends to the citizens.
The new Sarekin Hausawa, who described Enugu as peaceful said he was “born in Enugu over 50 years ago. We lived in Coal camp, in the then East Central State. Generally, there is no place as peaceful as Enugu State because we’ve been living with the Igbos for years.”
He promised to join hands with the authorities in Rivers State, Abia, Ebonyi, Awka, Anambra
Ado explained that other tribes, such as the Idoma, Igalla and Fulani, are all under the umbrella of Sarekin Hausawa of Enugu.
In another development, Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has warned that killers of his Senior Special Assistant on Security Matters, Denen Igbana, were daring his capabilities, calling on the security agencies to fish them out fast.
