Ebonyi killings: FG Vows to Arrest, Prosecute perpetrators | #IgbereTV

The Federal Government has pledged to ensure justice for victims of the recent attacks on three communities of Ishielu Local Government Area of Ebonyi by suspected armed Fulani Herdsmen.

Vice President Yemi Osibanjo made the pledge on Sunday in Abakaliki while addressing stakeholders of the state after inspecting the affected communities.

Osibanjo, who commiserated with the government and people of the state over the unfortunate incident, promised that the assailants will be arrested and duly prosecuted.

β€œI convey the condolences from President Muhammadu Buhari as there is no justification whatsoever for the killings and destruction of property.

β€œThe killings must be condemned in its strongest terms as the victims must have lived together for long with those who may have killed them,” he said.

The Vice President said that it was the responsibility of federal, state and local governments to ensure that such killings did not occur.

β€œI am, however, pleased that at the Egedegede Community, the political leaders found some facts and evidence which would help security agencies in their investigations.

β€œThis would help trace the perpetrators of this terrible act but our duty as political leaders is to maintain absolute peace in areas where we serve as leaders,’’ he said.

He said that the Federal Government has beefed up security in the affected areas and other parts of the state by deploying additional soldiers and police personnel to the areas.

β€œWe need to ensure that relief is sent to the affected areas as the National Emergency Management Agency, among other relevant agencies, would be mobilised to assist the people with relief materials,” he said.
