The governors of the five states in Nigeria’s southeast have resolved to launch a regional security outfit in the wake of the launch of Operation Amotekun – a similar security network – by their equivalents in the southwest.
Concise News reports that the southeast governors of Enugu, Abia, Anambra, Imo and Ebonyi took this decision on Sunday at a meeting held inside the Government House in Enugu, Enugu State.
The chairman of the South East Governors’ Forum, Governor Dave Umahi of Ebonyi State, disclosed this to newsmen.
It was learned that the governors affirmed their commitment towards concluding the establishment of the Joint South East Security Outfit to tackle the security challenges in the region.
The Ebonyi governor said the leaders had written the federal government over this, but had yet to choose a name for the security outfit.
