Ebonyi Dep Gov sues for peace over killing

The Deputy Governor of Ebonyi State, Dr. Kelechi Igwe has appealed to the people of Ekwashi in a Ohaukwu LGA not to engage in a reprisal following the killing of a couple from the area by the Agila people of Benue State.

He made the appeal when he visited the community to console them over the gruesome killing of a couple, late Mr. Ogwa Joseph and wife, Angelina

The Deputy Governor described the action as barbaric and unfortunate coming a time the state government had made reasonable effort to restore peace in the area.

Dr. Igwe attributed incessant attacks of Ebonyi people along boarder areas to discrimination and warned that the era of looking down on Ebonyi was over.
