The Chairman of Southeast Governors’ Forum and Ebonyi State Governor, Mr David Umahi has called on all Igbos living anywhere in the country to remain peaceful and go about their legitimate businesses without entertaining any fear of molestation.
Gov Umahi stated this while reacting to a viral video where a certain young man was issuing a 48 hour ultimatum to Igbo to vacate Yoruba land, threatening to deal with them should they fail to comply with the ultimatum by Monday, October 26.
The Governor while addressing youths at the weekend in Ohaozara Council Area of the State, urged Igbo people in Yoruba land to disregard the quit notice.
He said he has spoken with leaders from the west, and they have assured that Igbos the western part of the country are safe and we should disregard the empty threat.
Governor Umahi assured every ethnic group, living in southeast, including the Yorubas to go about their businesses peacefully, advising them to report any threat to Governors and the security agencies.
