Group describes Ebubeagu security outfit as jamboree
The South East Revival Group, SERG, has described ‘Ebube Agu’, the security outfit announced by South-East Governors as “another jamboree”.
The organisation said the decision of the governors was meant to please the federal authorities.
SERG President, Willy Ezugwu, in a statement, reiterated that the federal government failed in tackling the security challenges in the country.
He noted that if anti-crime and counter-terrorism policies were working, there would be no need for calls for a special security arrangement in the South-East.
“The SERG sees the latest move as yet another jamboree and a convenient political outing aimed at pleasing the federal establishment rather than the people of the region.
“We practically pleaded with them since the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown to set off a central security outfit but it didn’t go well with them until the first Ebonyi herdsmen attack their host communities.
“It was laughable that the governors ordered security agencies to implement a ban on opening grazing. Is there any law establishing Ebube Agu that has a clause banning open grazing?”
SERG urged the people to prevail on the governors to enact laws banning open grazing and establish the security outfit in their respective states like Amotekun.
