South East Governors Hold Secret Meeting In Enugu
Governors of the South East geo-political zone yesterday held a secret meeting at the Enugu State Government House.
Although the governors refused to speak with reporters who waited patiently for several hours for the communique of the meeting, sources said the governors might have deliberated on the threat by a pro-Biafran group, Biafran Zionists Movement (BZM) that there would be bloodbath if Nigeria failed to vacate the territory of the defunct Republic of Biafra by March 31, 2014.
Ebonyi State governor, Martin Elechi, his Enugu State counterpart, Sullivan Chime and chairman of the South East Governors Forum, Theodore Orji attended the meeting.
The BZM, led by Onwuka Igwe had attacked Enugu State Government House on the 8th of this month and attempted to hoist flags of the defunct Republic of Biafra.
Although the police initially claimed that members of the Movement for the Actualisation of the Sovereign State of Biafra (MASSOB) carried out the attack, the BZM leader swiftly dismissed the allegation and claimed responsibility.
Apart from claiming responsibility, Onwuka warned that there would be bloodbath if Nigeria failed to vacate the territory of the defunct Republic of Biafra by March 31, 2014.
Onwuka said they captured the Enugu Government House for four hours – between 3am and 7am – without carrying arms.
Onwuka further warned that there would be bloody attacks if the federal government failed to free the Republic of Biafra from its territories by March 31, 2014.
He disclosed that the invasion of Enugu Government House was primarily to reclaim the old headquarters of the former Biafra Republic and dismissed speculation that they were sponsored by some politicians in Enugu State.
A statement made available to reporters in Enugu yesterday by police public relations officer in Enugu State, Ebere Amaraizu yesterday described Onwuka Bejamin Igwe as one of the suspected “actors in the unlawful act of 8/3/14 at Government House and since then has not been seen”.
“He is 5ft 2 inches tall and not too dark in complexion and about 52 years and speaks English and Ibo languages fluently.He is also a native of Item in Bende local Government Area of Abia state and is resident around Abakpa Nike axis of Enugu state.The command requests any one with useful information about him Onwuka Benjamin Igwe to contact any nearest police Division or formation or the state criminal and investigations Department Enugu state for appriopriate action as the informant will be adequately rewarded” he stated.
