Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi on Wednesday expressed dismay over the death of five Ngbo indigenes in Ohaukwu Local government Area of the state by their Agila neighbours of Benue state.

The state Commissioner of Police, Musa Kimo who visited the scene, said everything has been brought under control and called on the people of the area to remain calm and go about their lawful business.

The Governor who was represented by the Deputy Governor Dr Kelechi Igwe made his feelings known when he visited families of the affected persons at Ekwashi and Ukwagba communities.

The Governor expressed dismay over what he called flagrant disregard to agreement by the Agila people.

He observed that Ebonyi people had suffered incessant attacks from their neighbours in recent times and appealed to the federal government to intervene before the people would resort to self-defence.

He appealed to the people to remain calm and law-abiding, assuring that government would ensure permanent resolution of the crisis.

The chairman of Ohaukwu local government Council Barr Clement Odaah told the governor that Benue people invaded the people of Ngbo, despite
peace agreement signed with Ado local government council a few weeks ago.

He lamented the incessant attack and called on Benue state government to call Agila people to order.

The governor was accompanied by security chief including CP Musa Kimo and representative of the Cantonment Commander, Major S Milla.
