Chief Stanley Emegha Okoro, Chairman of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ebonyi State, has cautioned five members of the National Assembly representing the state to desist from petitioning against the existence of Ebubeagu security outfit, which according to him, has reduced, killings, robbery attacks and other criminal activities in the state.
Okoro, who is also the Special Security Consultant to the Ebonyi State Government, said that the Ebubeagu security outfit was established and backed up by law to avoid abuse of power, political witch-hunting of anyone, and to reduce all forms of criminality in the state.
He made this known in a statement made available to journalists in Abakaliki, the state capital.
“What we have today as Ebubeagu Security Outfit has been in existence prior to the administration of Governor David Umahi in Ebonyi State as Neighborhood Watch. The Governor only rebranded the security outfit through training and retraining of its personnel and also backed it up with a law to avoid abuse of power in any form,” he said.
Okoro lamented that “eight personnel of Ebubeagu have been killed in a very gruesome manner in the course of discharging their official assignment with professionalism and gallantry, have helped to boost the security arrangement in the state hence citizens can now sleep with their eyes closed
