Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State has summoned an emergency state security council meeting over the recent clash between some youths suspected to be Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) members and security agencies.
In a statement, yesterday, Secretary to the State Government, Simon Ortuanya, said during the meeting, all security agencies in the state would brief the governor on the immediate and remote causes of the clash and advance measures to avert such in the future.
The meeting is scheduled to hold on September 1 at the executive council chambers of the Government House, Enugu at about 2pm.
The clash, which has generated wide condemnations by prominent groups and individuals left a number of youths dead and many others with varying degrees of injuries.
Meanwhile, Ohanaeze Ndigbo Worldwide has vowed to get to the root cause of clash.
Speaking shortly after a meeting with Governor Ugwuanyi, Ohanaeze President General, Nnia Nwodo, said the group would make its stand known after Ugwuanyi’s special security meeting.
Nwodo, who was speaking for the first time since the incident, debunked all the statements, so far, credited to him on the killings and urged the public to discountenance them.
