By Wisdom Deji-Folutile

Chairman of South-East Governors Forum and governor of Ebonyi State, David Umahi, has knocked youths from the region for bringing war to the area.

The governor condemned the youth role in attacks on government property, saying that their demands will never be met if such continued.

He said, “There are lots of merits in the agitation. We can’t achieve it by abusing the President, governors and other leaders. Why are we killing security agencies and burning police stations? Our people are the ones burning police stations and killing security agencies.

“Most of the security agents being killed are from the South-East. We have brought war to ourselves.”

The governor also condemned the rise of Fulani herdsmen criminality in the nation, calling on the Federal Government to stop defending bandits and start borrowing military artillery from neighbouring countries to handle the situation.
