S’East govs, Igbo leaders to meet over killings in the North

23 January 2012

WORRIED by the spate of insecurity in the country, especially the upsurge in bombing and killings of Ndigbo in the north, governors of the southeast geopolitical zone rose from a meeting in Enugu yesterday and resolved to convoke a meeting of Igbo leaders to take a position on the matter.
Present at the meeting which lasted for over four hours included the five governors of the zone, Martin Elechi of Ebonyi State; Theodore Orji of Abia State; Rochas Okorocha of Imo State; Sullivan Chime of Enugu State and Peter Obi of Anambra State.

Ohanaeze Ndigbo had asked the governors to help evacuate Igbo from the northerner parts of the country following the incessant attacks by the Boko Haram sect.
