Ebonyi confirms attack on NDLEA operative killing of two

Ebonyi State Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress, who also doubles as the Security Consultant to State Government, Stanley Okoro-Emegha, has confirmed the killing of two persons and an attack on operatives of National Drugs Law Enforcement Agency, by unknown gunmen, on Sunday.

Okoro-Emegha stated this while briefing journalists shortly after his 51st birthday anniversary, in Abakaliki.

He decried the spate of attacks on security operatives in the State by unknown gunmen, stressing that the hoodlums had imbibed a new tactic of trying to put fear into security operatives.

According to him, the state government was poised to clampdown on all criminals terrorising the citizenry.

He said, “Last night, the hoodlums went and attacked NDLEA officer. There are unseen political hands in these things that are happening. We are approaching political era when a lot of things happens.

“You see, a lot of persons come and start talking trash. We are in charge. The security agencies, together with the Ebubeagu Security outfit know deep about these things that are happening.

“Few days ago, we apprehended a lot of hoodlums and we handed them over to the police. There are a lot of political hands in these things that are happening in Ebonyi. And very soon, so far the Governor of the State, David Umahi, is still the Governor, we are going to put a stop to all these security threats.

We know the people that are causing this but very soon, we will tell them to stop all these things they are doing. And if they refuse to stop, they will pay heavily for it because it is not good, like when they attacked the NDLEA officer, they killed two persons.

“For what? It’s just to create fear into the security agencies. We will stop it whether they (hoodlums) like it or not. I’m the consultant in charge of the security in Ebonyi State here.

“And I don’t think, it is a good record that after the assistance that the Governor is giving to us to handle the issue of security in the State, he is doing a lot of projects and he can’t be everywhere, and I’m in-charge of the security, they know.”
