Governor David Nweze Umahi of Ebonyi State has denied a claim by the Peoples Democratic Party that he is unleashing terror on the opposition in the state.

9news Nigeria recalls that the PDP, through the National Publicity Secretary, Debo Ologunagba, had accused Governor Umahi of using a heavily armed killer squad, currently disguised under the Ebubeagu security outfit, as a political weapon to arrest, attack and inflict grievous bodily harm on Nigerians and particularly PDP members in Ebonyi State.

The Party also demanded the immediate release of its spokesperson in the state, Nwoba Nwoba, who was last week arraigned before a Magistrate Court sitting in Abakaliki for allegedly publishing materials on his Facebook against the member representing Ikwo/Ezza South federal constituency in the House of Representatives, Chinedu Ogah.

Describing the accusations as garbage, the Special Assistant to Governor Umahi on Media and Publicity, Francis Nwaze, said Nwoba’s arrest was not orchestrated by the Governor.

He said, “Governor David Umahi has been acclaimed the most tolerant administrator in Nigeria and so could not be said to be anthemic to the opposition. His Excellency acknowledges the fact that he is Governor of all irrespective of political parties, hence, giving all in the State the level playing field to operate.

“The Governor has no plans of rigging the 2023 General elections as alleged by the PDP. He has variously insisted that the decision of who replaces him in 2023 would be made by the people themselves and not the other way round.

“The Ebubeagu Security outfit is not a militia group as alleged by the PDP but a Citizen-based neighbourhood Security established by the Law of the House of Assembly which has attracted widespread encomiums for their roles in assisting the Police and other conventional Security Agencies in stamping out insecurity in the State.

“That the Ebubeagu Security outfit was not set up to witch-hunt the opposition but to provide alternative security to the lives and property of all citizens irrespective of political party affiliations.

“That those who fear or feel unease about the Ebubeagu Security outfit are probably those who meddle in criminalities who wouldn’t want their criminal escapades to be unearthed by the effervescent Security outfit.

“That the arrest of the embattled Publicity Secretary of the PDP, Nwoba Chika Nwoba was not orchestrated by Governor Umahi as alleged by the opposition Party, rather, he was caught up for allegedly defaulting a valid law of the land.

“That the Ebonyi State Government as it stands has no immunity to comment further on the detained Nwoba Chika Nwoba as his case is already subsisting in a Court of competent jurisdiction.

“That Honourable Linus Okorie was declared wanted by the Security Council of the State based on a security report about his alleged nefarious activities which run foul of valid laws.

“That the PDP should learn to channel their agitations properly through the Court process instead of castigating the man who has since moved on from the protection of the depleted Umbrella in the State to a very progressive pedestal of unending peace and oneness under the APC.

“That Ebonyians and the general public should disregard the disjointed watery concoction of the janjaweed political party which is simply meant to amass external sympathy to the remnants of the House of Saul in Ebonyi State.”
