The Governor of Ebonyi State, Chief David Umahi has frowned at the fresh killings of nine persons in Ukwagba Ngbo in Ohaukwu LGA of the state.

The governor threatened to arrest and imprison stakeholders of the area for allegedly sponsoring the massacre.

Umahi, who visited the council headquarters of Ohaukwu LGA located at 135 along Abakaliki- Enugu, gave stakeholders of the area 24 hours to produce the killers of the 9 persons and the missing four others in the area.

Represented by the deputy Governor, Kelechi Igwe, the governor said it is a shame on the stakeholders of the area including the 6 former chairmen of the council to allow killings to ravage the local government.

Recall, Ohaukwu LGA is the hometown of the former first civilian governor of Ebonyi state, Dr. Sam Egwu, who is the current senator representing Ebonyi north senatorial zone, but Ohaukwu LGA has been ravaged with serial crises leading to killings of innocent persons on daily basis.
