The Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Ebonyi State Council, has expressed worry over the alleged action of Inspector General of Police (IGP), Adamu Mohammed, concerning the raid of the Abuja residence of the Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi.

The Council condemned in strong terms, the invasion of Governor Umahi’s Abuja home, allegedly linked to the ban on the movement of herders with arms in the South-East region by Southeast Governors’ Forum which Umahi is the Chairman.

The Governor’s Abuja home was raided recently by security operatives believed to have come from the Force Headquarters of the Nigerian Police.

During the raid, sources said, the policemen guarding the residence were disarmed and made to lie on the ground while the invading forces ransacked the building.

The raid came a few days after Umahi and other Governors from the Southeast announced a ban on Herdsmen with arms in the region.

The region had in recent times witnessed heightened tensions between Herdsmen and farmers leading to many loss of lives.

Also, there have been increased criminal activities like kidnapping and armed robbery with the Herdsmen accused of being responsible for some of them.

The ban on armed herdsmen has been hailed by the people of the region as the right way to go in curbing the menace.

The Council described the incident as an unwarranted attack not just on Governor Umahi and the South-East Governors, but against the entire Ndigbo.

The Council in a communique signed by the NUJ Chairman and Very Secretary, Comrades Tony Nwizi and Nnamdi Akpa, expressed concern on the continued silence of the Inspector General of Police and the Presidency on the invasion.

They called on the police to open and make public pronouncements on the outcome of their investigation if any.
