The South-East Governors have directed the Supreme Igbo socio-cultural organisation, Ohanaeze Ndigbo to set up a committee that will address “unfair treatment” of Igbos.


In a statement issued after the South-East governors met in Enugu on Sunday April 25. The Ohaneze Ndigbo were also directed to set up a peace and reconciliation committee to engage Igbo people for peace and security in the region including their visitors.


The committees will become functional in the next 10 days. Governor of Ebonyi state, David Umahi also said the newly established security outfit of the region, Ebube Agu will work closely with security agencies to restore peace in affected states.


The communique read;


“South-east governors and leaders re-stated the adoption of a common joint security outfit called ‘Ebube Agu’, with her regional headquarters in Enugu. ‘Ebube Agu’ will work with the police and other security agencies in her operations to protect lives and property in south-east.

“We agreed on the structure and operational modalities of ‘Ebube Agu’ and to set up an advisory board for the security outfit. The honourable attorney-generals and commissioners for justice of the south-east states have been directed to work with the joint security committee to come up with the amendment of the existing state laws to reflect the new ‘Ebube Agu’ outfit.

“The meeting directed Ohaneze Ndigbo president to immediately form two committees: South-east peace and reconciliation committee to engage our people for the peace and security of our people and her visitors; strategy and welfare committee to engage and protect our people, especially those who are being unfairly treated.

“These committees must become functional within the next 10 days from this date.”


The Governors who reiterated their support for restructuring and state police, also condemned the attack on the country home of Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo state.


The South-East Governors who further agreed on the implementation of various EndSARS youth empowerment programmes as soon as possible, stressed that the ban on open grazing is still in effect.
