The Chairman of South East Governor’s forum and Ebonyi State Governor, David Umahi has condemned the New Year killings in Omoku, the headquarters of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area of Rivers State, describing it as height of insanity and babarism.
Governor Umahi in a statement signed by his Chief Press Secretary, Emmanuel Uzor described the killing of innocent worshippers who went for Cross Over Night special prayer as national tragedy and condoled with the families of those who lost their loved ones.
The Governor further commiserated with the government and people of Rivers State over the calamity and decribed the act as height of insanity and degeneration of humanity to evil.
Governor Umahi in the statement said “we are here again faced with one of the greatest carnage and man’s inhumanity to man. To think that a man with blood running in his vein should open fire on innocent fellow citizens is so horrible and devastating. It is with great shock that I recieved the news and on behalf of my family and the patriotic citizens of Ebonyi State, I commiserate with my brother and friend, Governor Nyesom Wike, the people of Rivers state and the families of the deceased. Such inhuman act further puts question to our existence as sane and salubrious concious beings”
He called on security agencies to intensify investigations into the massacre with a view to arresting the masterminds of the killing while praying God to grant the souls of the deceased eternal rest.
